The Kazakhstan national bandy team will not come to Irkutsk because of the coronavirus. The start of ticket sales for group a matches is postponed to March 16
The Ministry of culture and sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan recommended that the national sports Federations cancel sending athletes to countries where cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded, and generally refrain from traveling outside of Kazakhstan for prevention purposes. President of the Republic Kasym-Jomart Tokayev instructed to take such measures.
Today, on March 9, the Directorate for the preparation and holding of the world bandy championship in Irkutsk received an official letter from the Kazakhstan bendy Association. It informs that the national team of the Republic of Kazakhstan will not take part in the world championship among men's teams.
Since the national team of Kazakhstan was supposed to play in group A, whose teams play in Irkutsk from March 29 to April 5, the tournament management is waiting for the decision of the International bandy Federation on the possible replacement of the team of Kazakhstan with another team.
Therefore, the match calendar will change, which will also need to be approved. In this regard, ticket sales for the matches of the strongest group A will begin on March 16.
We remind fans that tickets can be purchased as an electronic version on the website of the world Cup in Irkutsk baikal-bandy.ru, and in paper form in the ticket offices of the lobby Of the Palace of sports "Trud".
