2021 IIHF Women's World Championship

Calgary, Alberta | August 20-31, 2021

The 2021 IIHF Women's World Championship is set for August 20-31, 2021. The WinSport Arena at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta, will play host to all 31 games of the championship.

Originally, the tournament was set for Halifax and Truro, Nova Scotia from May 6-16, 2021. On April 21, the IIHF and Hockey Canada postponed the tournament due to safety concerns associated with COVID-19.

The 2020 championship was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2019, the U.S. won gold over Finland in Espoo, Finland.

The U.S. has won the gold in five-straight IIHF Women's World Championships (2013, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019). Additionally, the U.S. has captured the top-prize in eight of the last nine IIHF Women's World Championships.
