Further information on ticketing will be released in the coming weeks. All ticket holders must be fully vaccinated to attend games in both communities.
The 31-game tournament begins next month, running from December 26 to January 5.
The round-robin portion of the schedule will be highlighted by Canada hosting Finland on New Year’s Eve. Canada will also play the Czech Republic on Boxing Day, as well as Austria on December 28 and Germany on December 29.
Canada won silver last year after being upset by Team USA in the gold medal match in Edmonton. The tournament was held without fans in attendance in 2021 because of COVID-19 protocols.
Canada last won gold at the World Juniors in 2020 when it was hosted in the Czech Republic, and last won gold on home soil in 2015 when the tournament was hosted in Toronto and Montreal.
