Friday 13 has become a lucky day for Russia as the country has won the right to host the 2016 Ice Hockey World Championships. The voting was to take place at the International Ice Hockey Federation Congress in Bratislava, but Ukraine and Denmark, who also hoped to snatch the event, withdrew their applications at the final moment. Russia is planning to hold the World Championship games at Moscow's Megasport Arena and Ice Palace in St Petersburg. The estimated budget for the event is around US$14 million. It is going to be the third Hockey World Championships in Russia since the start of the new millennium as the country hosted the annual event in 2000 and 2007
