03.04.2013 17:54

MINSK, 3 April (BelTA) – The second international tournament to commemorate former captain of the Belarusian national ice hockey team Ruslan Salei will take place at Chizhovka Arena in September. Chizhovka Arena will be one of the two venues of the 2014 IIHF World Championship, Chairman of the Belarusian Ice Hockey Federation Mr Yevgeny Vorsin told a press conference on 3 April, BelTA has learnt.

“We have plans to hold the Ruslan Salei memorial tournament at Chizhovka Arena in September to test the venue prior to the 2014 IIHF World Championship. We expect that the Belarusian Cup final will be held here, too. This tournament is set to be renamed the Salei Cup. The most important construction operations should be completed by July while the rest of time some minor details will be improved. So Chizhovka Arena will be commissioned in September. Besides, HC Yunost Minsk are expected to use this arena as their home venue. Prior to the 2014 IIHF World Championship some other tournaments will be held here, too,” Yevgeny Vorsin noted.

Mr Igor Karpenko, Deputy Chairman of the Minsk City Executive Committee, added that the construction works meet the schedule: “The inspections carried out by representatives of the International Ice Hockey Federation show that they do not have any major complaints.”

The IIHF World Championship will be held in Minsk, Belarus, on 9-25 May 2014.
