GB to face Poland and Kazakhstan
Great Britain will play Poland and Kazakhstan next year as part of their preparations for the World Championship in Switzerland.
GB will meet Poland on Friday 17th April 2020 (7:30pm) at the Skydome in Coventry, before the two sides face each other in Cardiff’s Viola Arena the next day, Saturday 18th April 2020 (7pm).
Pete Russell’s side will then take-on Kazakhstan on Sunday 3rd May (5:30pm) in Milton Keynes ahead of the sold-out encounter with Canada two days later at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham.
GB’s last meeting with both sides came during their successful promotion-winning campaign at the 2018 World Championship Division I Group A in Budapest.
Brett Perlini, Colin Shields, Brendan Brooks, Ben O’Connor and Jonathan Phillips were the goalscorers in a 5-3 win over Poland, while Luke Ferrara scored his first GB goal in a 6-1 defeat by Kazakhstan.
Russell said: “These are two more excellent opponents and they are sure to be three great matches as part of our World Championship preparations.
“We have had some terrific battles with Poland at both World Championship tournaments and in warm-up games - and I am sure next year will be no different.
“Kazakhstan are always tricky opponents for us so I am looking forward to seeing how we match-up against them.
“These games - and of course the match with Canada - are vital in getting ourselves ready for the World Championship in Switzerland.”
