Do you still remember those special international kiekko.tk matches between Team Finland and Team Netherlands organized by Kiekkoliiga?

Or how about earlier Kiekko World Cups held by Kiekkoradio, Spectator and 3League?

Those events were really successful in Kiekko. Now it’s time to gather the best players from different countries together again to compete for the highly valued Kiekko World Cup Trophy – we are more than delighted to announce that the fifth Kiekko World Cup in Kiekko’s history will be held in the late August!

What would be better a time for Kiekko’s own World Cup to take place than right before the World Cup in real life? Ice hockey fans around the world have been waiting for that event eagerly and for instance in Finland there are already tickets available for a friendly match between Finland and Sweden. Contrary to that game, in Kiekko spectators don’t have to pay huge amount of money to see the best players play. In recent years Kiekko World Cup has drawn hundreds of spectators to witness high-class matches – it’s rare to see the best players from all of the biggest nations that play Kiekko in the rink all together. That’s the reason why World Cup is such a unique tournament.

The participating countries in Kiekko World Cup V have been chosen already. Altogether eight different teams will compete for the title of the best Kiekko country and they are lead by coaches that Kiekko World Cup V’s board have chosen. Those eight teams and their coaches are:

Team Europe (EU) – boy and Jezik
Team Czech Republic (CZE) – scarp
Team Finland (FIN) – Hatti
Team Finland U-20 (U20) – Pumppuli
Team Latvia (LAT) – Bartulis
Team North America (NA) – Goth and Tyler
Team Slovakia (SVK) – Chara-3
Team United Kingdom (UK) – shmeeg

As shown in the list, there will be two different teams that represent Finland – in addition to Team Finland which is coached by Hatti, there is an “under-20” team from Finland that consists only Finnish beginner players from Aloittelijoiden liiga (League of Beginners). Team Europe serves as a so-called “Rest of the World” team that has players from all around Europe. On Team North America there will be players from Canada and the United States of America.

Groups have been formed already and they are following:

Group A

Team Finland
Team Czech Republic
Team Latvia
Team Slovakia

Group B

Team Europe
Team Finland U-20
Team North America
Team United Kingdom

Kiekko World Cup V will be held in 08/22/16 – 09/04/16 and team rosters will be announced by 08/15/16. You can find the rules of the tournament, participating teams and other important information from the website of Kiekko World Cup V which can be found from the Info Box below.

Due to bigger popularity and because we did not want to change the old order already from the first tournament we create. This tournament might raise the amount of foreign players or their activity so from the next tournaments we might re-consider moving the games to the European server aswell.

Yet this tournament is about team cooperation and skill, and from what we saw in the past team like Slovakia, for example, had no problems in beating teams on this server and winning the competition aswell.
