The head of the International ice hockey Federation Rene Fasel commented on the information that he can stay in office beyond September 2020, when should be held election of a new President of the IIHF. Previously, Fazel said that will definitely leave his post after 26 years of leadership of this organization.
“I listen and make notes. I don’t want to leave the ship in turbulent waters. It would be unfair to my successor. Candidates today are very difficult to campaign in these conditions. If I have to remain in his post for another six months or a year, we’ll see. But I rule new four-year term.
As for moving the world championship in Switzerland for 2021, it is not a priority. It was a difficult decision, we are three weeks had abolished the 19 events. There are certain problems that must be solved, there are expenses that must be covered. I prefer not to panic and calmly work”, — quotes the words Fasel La Regione.
