The Schedule of Team Slovakia for the season 2017/18 has been announced today. Still waiting for the final confirmation of the Olympic schedule.

 

August 23rd 2017 Friendly Match against Czech Rep. in Třinec (CZE)

both teams will meet together also the next day August 24th in another friendly match this time in Slovakia in žilina

 

In November (10th-12th) We will play as usual in the Deutschland Cup in Augsburg (GER) in a round-robin tournament against Germany, USA and "B" team of Russia.

 

In the middle of December we will play another tournament in Norway (Hamar) against Norway, France and once again "B" team of Russia.

 

Then came February 2018 and the highlight of the season the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang (KOR) The schedule is not exactly finished but it´s already known that we will play in Group B against Russia, USA and Slovenia, thanks to the format of the tournament every team is assured to play at least one more game in the Play-offs.

 

In April 2018 is scheduled as usual the beloved pre-world championships test preparation matches, This time again our preparation will be composed of 8 matches during 4 weeks.

We´ll start with 2 matches in Sweden

the next week we will host Latvia for another 2 matches.

the next week we will travel to Germany for another 2 friendly games against the host,

and we will end the preparation with last 2 matches the next week at home against France.

 

Then the season will be traditionally closed at the World Championships this time for the first time ever in Denmark (We will play The Preliminary round in Copenhaguen´s Group A against Russia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Belarus, France and the newly promoted Austria) The top 4 teams will continue the journey in the tournament in the play-offs, Last team will be relegated, thankfully this time we will not be scared by this like this year anymore thanks our 2019 Host rights Immunity.
