Hungary to host Womens' U18 Championship
CASCAIS, Portugal – With none of the women's hockey powers applying, Hungary stepped up and were awarded the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 Women's World Championship. It will take place in Budapest.
The Hungarian women's U18 program is a fairy-tale story. They won the 2012 U18 Division IA event in Tromsö, Norway and earned promotion to the 2013 top pool women's U18 championship, with all the major powers Canada, USA, Sweden and Finland.
The dates for the championship are 23 March - 30 March, 2014.
The championship will be held at Budapest's IceCenter, a modern (opened in 2002) and a perfect-fit facility in the northern outskirts of the capital (Ujpest)...
