GB to face familiar foes ahead of World Championship tournament

Great Britain will play Poland and Kazakhstan next year as part of their preparations for the World Championship tournament in Switzerland.

GB will meet Poland on Friday, 17th April, at the Skydome in Coventry, before the two sides face each other in Cardiff’s Viola Arena the following day.

Pete Russell’s side will then take on Kazakhstan on Sunday, 3rd May, in Milton Keynes ahead of the sold-out encounter with Canada two days later in Nottingham.

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.”
