Dear friends! 

On behalf of the Board of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, I welcome you to the Third World Hockey Forum!

One can say with a great deal of certainty that the World Hockey Forum that will take place in Moscow for a third time this year has become a noticeable event in the world’s hockey calendar.

Each year, the forum brings together some of the world’s leading hockey experts in the Russian capital. It is the kind of discussion venue that the professional community needs today.

One of the priorities of the forum is to represent a full gamut of opinions on the issues that are most relevant for our sport today. It is an excellent chance to discuss possible options for ongoing development of ice hockey in the conditions of the existing competitive environment.

It is impossible to speak about the future of hockey without understanding the most fundamental principles of training of young hockey players. This year’s forum gives us an opportunity to consider all aspects of this problem in detail and analyze the existing national training programmes.

The agenda of the Third World Hockey Forum promises a substantive and interesting dialogue. I am certain that our interaction will be fruitful.

Dear friends!

I am happy to acknowledge that the World Hockey Forum has become a regular and important event in the life of the global hockey community and I congratulate all of us most sincerely on account of this achievement. This year, the World Hockey Forum will be taking place for a third time. Today, it is evident that the proposal of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation to organize and hold this event and under the assistance of the International Ice Hockey Federation was a timely and productive initiative.

Hockey is a game that is both popular and diverse. Its effective development depends on a number of different factors. Naturally, it is impossible for us to resolve all the problems of our most favourite sport in one fell swoop. They require ongoing painstaking work a significant part of which entails looking for coordinated decisions and negotiating a common professional position on relevant issues. In this connection, the importance of the World Hockey Forum can hardly be overestimated.

This important forum determines the agenda for the upcoming hockey year and sets the tone for a professional conversation among sports practitioners, coaches, athletes, experts and sports executives. Only this kind of constructive approach is capable of ensuring ice hockey’s harmonious and comprehensive development in the complex conditions of today’s competitive environment.

Special thanks are due to the city of Moscow for its most cordial hospitality! I wish you all mutual understanding and fruitful collaboration and I will see you all at the Third World Hockey Forum!

René Fasel

President of the International Ice Hockey Federation

Dear friends!

The World Hockey Forum is not only one of the most important professional events in the world of hockey, but it also is an illustration of the hockey family’s unity. It is for a third time now that Moscow is getting ready to welcome some of the world leading specialists, legendary players, coaches, experts and researchers in the field of hockey.

The previous two hockey forums have demonstrated that we are prepared to share our experiences and that we are willing to listen to and to hear each other because we have one common desire – to promote our sport, to make it more popular and to expand its span across the world.

In order to meet these expectations, hockey requires a balanced development strategy. Its success will largely depend on the approach we choose to address the issue of training of athletes. We are happy to see that our foreign colleagues understand these important issues and that they are prepared to discuss them further.

No doubt, we are proud that the World Hockey Forum has become a regular event in the Russian capital – it is hard to overestimate the importance of hockey for our country and the love Russian people have always had for ice hockey. This is why it is so important for us to make sure that our most favourite sport continues to grow, evolve, and compete successfully on the modern arena.

Dear colleagues and friends!

On behalf of the Ministry of sports of the Russian Federation, I welcome you to the Third “World Hockey Forum”!

Over the past two years, the “World Hockey Forum” has proven its professional worth and established itself as one of the most important events in the world of hockey.

The forum brings together hockey movement professionals and like-minded individuals that are ready to address and resolve contradictions to ensure ongoing development of our favourite sport.

This year, capitalizing on our prior experience in the organization of the “World Hockey Forum”, we were able to put together a very specific business programme. The most advanced experiences in the training of aspiring athletes, an analysis of the national programmes of training of hockey players in different countries, and creation of successful hockey brands – these are the primary areas that determine the growth potential of hockey as a sport, as well as an industry.

I am certain that the Third “World Hockey Forum” will give you an opportunity to take part in an open, interesting and productive dialogue.

I hope that the Third “World Hockey Forum” will enable all its participants, organizers and guests to work productively and implement all their initiatives designed to facilitate ongoing development of the world hockey movement.

Pavel Kolobkov

Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation
