Soccer-star Podolski promotes IIHF World Championships

Two weeks before the first faceoff in Cologne and Paris, the organizing comitee (OC) have presented a popular supporter: Lukas Podolski, a well-known soccer player with merits for e.g. Bayern Munich, is official embassador for the IIHF World Championships 2017.

"Lukas Podolski is a world-wide admired striker and everbody's darling off the field. He will use his popularity to promote the hockey world championships even aside of the hockey-community", says a press-release of the German federation Deutscher Eishockey-Bund (DEB). Podolski is quoted: "Hockey is a great, extremly fast and hard sport. Everybody who is able to should get the prove at the world championships. As an embassador, I consider myself as a part of the OC and I would like to support the event and help to make it a success."

The IIHF World Championships 2017 start on May 5 and will be highlighted by the final on May 21. Further information and tickets under
