The IIHF announced Saturday the upcoming Men's World Hockey Championship has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.



The World Championship was scheduled to run from May 8 to 24 in Switzerland.

"This is a harsh reality to face for the international ice hockey family, but one that we must accept," IIHF President René Fasel said in a release. "The coronavirus is a global problem and requires major efforts by government bodies to combat its spread. The IIHF must do all it can to support this fight. We have to set sport aside for now and support both the government bodies and the ice hockey family."
