The Hungarian national team immediately gets a chance for revenge against Czechia, as the two teams will play their respective first games in the World Championships against each other. Czechia came out on top in the 3-nations tournament in Budapest in the end of January.
The tournament will be played with two games each day, and Hungary will finish off Friday evening with a clash against Switzerland. On Saturday, Germany awaits in the first match of the day and thereafter the men’s national team will play against neighbours Slovakia. On Sunday, Netherlands awaits in the last group stage game, before the playoffs begin the evening.
This will be the first men’s World Championship since 2020, where Hungary won the gold medal in the B-group, and thus earned a spot in the A-group. Due to the number of participating nations being lower than usual, Hungary will this year compete in a strong B-group. The tournament will be played 24-27 March in Swedish towns Växjö and Åby.
The schedule for the Hungarian men’s national team:
March 24, 13:00, Hungary – Czechia
March 24, 20:00, Hungary – Switzerland
March 25, 08:00, Hungary – Germany
March 25, 15:00, Hungary – Slovakia
March 26, 12:00, Hungary – Netherlands
The playoffs will start on the afternoon of 26th March, with the top 4 teams competing in the semi-finals and the remaining two teams competing for the 5th place.
