The Siberian city of Kemerovo is gearing up to host the 2007 Bandy World Cup
The Siberian city of Kemerovo is gearing up to host the 2007 Bandy World Cup, one of the biggest events in the world of sports. The decision to hold the championship in Russia was made in Ljusdal, Sweden at a session of the Federation of International Bandy (FIB) at the end of October. The game of bandy is similar to ice hockey but played with a ball instead of a puck and on an ice rink closer in size to a soccer field. A spokesman for the city's administration said the 12-day event, which will be held in January-February 2007, is expected to attract 325 players, 40 referees, more than 1,000 Siberian fans, and 500 foreign fans with 300 accredited correspondents. Top-level Group A will consist of teams from Russia, Sweden, Finland, Kazakhstan, Norway, and Belarus. Group B will include teams from the USA, Canada, Hungary, the Netherlands, Estonia, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, and Poland. The event's organizing committee held a meeting with city administrators where it presented the Russian Hockey program, which will help organize the preparation of ice rinks, stadiums, and hotels for participants and create favorable conditions for fans and guests of the city
