“You have to show up in the World Cup, and in the World Cup anything can happen.”

Here we go again!

Starting with simple international one-game-events back in 2005 and followed by huge events by organizations Kiekkoradio, Spectator and 3League, the time has come for another eagerly anticipated Kiekko World Cup. This time the tournament will bear a name of Kiekko World Cup VI – the sixth full-sized World Cup in Kiekko's history.

In the year 2016 almost a hundred players came together to compete in this unique international tournament. Being the only event in which it is possible to see the best players from all around the world at the same time, the stands have been full of enthusiastic spectators and the conversation around the tournament has been widely active. For instance with Team Finland the World Cup is the only event where the spectators have a chance to see players, who usually compete against each other, trying to find the common ground in order to beat their opponents. When it comes to the upcoming stars from all around Europe and North America, there is no better way to show your skills than in front of the roaring spectators in the World Cup rink.

Similar to the World Cup V, this year's tournament also has over seven participating countries and eight teams in total. The Kiekko World Cup VI's board has been working diligently to find the best formula for the tournament and after a lot of consideration, the participating teams and their coaches have been decided.

"We warmly welcome you to come and witness this unique tournament!"


Actually, the organizers of this WC have banned me from this tournament with no legitimate and justifiable reason. Just because I was raised in the hood and came from poverty and gang-related violence doesn't mean I must also face systemic racism on this game.

To avoid questions regardless about Team Europe and Finland B:

Team Europe has players from nations that were not able to gather enough players for their own national team.

Finland B has players with league experience that doesn't go over Superliiga 2divari/Power League/Aloittelijoiden liiga. Few games on a higher level are allowed but those cases will be revised between Finland B coach and World Cup board.
