Ice hockey giants Russia are ready for the qualifiers

by Christian Bellinger/Alexander Maier

Preview
For many years, record world champions Russia have been a top team among the international ice hockey elite. Now, fans can continue the Red Machine tradition by competing on virtual ice at the IIHF Esports Fan Championship.

Currently, Russia is enthroned on the second place of the IIHF world ranking list. Including the successes from the USSR era, the ice hockey-mad country has already won 27 world championship titles, making it the record world champion. In the past twelve years alone, the golden generation around the living NHL legends Ilya Kovalchuk and Alexander Ovetchkin became world champions four times, won two silver medals and finished third three times.If the Russian community can even come close to matching the achievements of their idols at the IIHF Esports Fan Championship, then nothing stands in the way of a successful tournament.

But first, a Russian representative for the playoffs will be determined in the qualifiers on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.  The large Russian fan community will certainly be able to form a powerful duo for international comparison from the large number of participants. All NHLâ„¢ 20 players with Russian citizenship who currently live in Russia or Kazakhstan and are over 16 years of age can compete. In addition to representing their home country in the first-ever IIHF Esports Fan Championship playoffs, the two qualifier winners will each receive two tickets to see Team Russia at the 2021 Ice Hockey World Championship, an IIHF Esports Fan Championship Puck and 100 euros prize money.
