We wouldn't be hosting in London, I highly doubt a capital city like Tallinn would have cheaper hotels than a crappy northern city like Sheffield (no offence to any Steelers fans reading this). But that isn't the point, the thing is like I said we never actually even apply to host, if we did apply and IIHF gave it to cities like Tallinn because it's cheaper then I would understand, but that isn't the case.
