The U.S. has captured the gold medal at the Worlds 10 times, most recently in 2023, defeating Canada, 6-3, and has made it to the gold-medal game in all 22 of the World Championships, winning gold in six of the last eight tournaments (2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019, 2023).

“This is going to be a historic event, and will begin with an unforgettable night to support Team USA on home soil,” said Mohawk Valley Garden President Robert Esche. “Hosting this event is an incredible opportunity to show off our city, our county and our country on the world stage.”

April 3rd will be fans’ first chance to witness Team USA in person. The United States is hosting the tournament for the first time since 2017 when the event was held in Plymouth, Michigan. Other U.S. host cities have included Lake Placid, N.Y., (1994), Minneapolis (2001), and Burlington, Vt. (2012).

The U.S. has four preliminary round games, including against Switzerland on April 3, Czechia on April 5, Finland on April 6 and Canada on April 8. All U.S. preliminary games are set for 7 p.m. ET.

The 2024 IIHF Women’s World Championship features the best women’s ice hockey players in the world, from 10 nations and all 29 games of the event will be staged at Adirondack Bank Center in Utica.

The 10 teams are divided into two groups with the U.S., Canada, Czechia, Finland and Switzerland comprising Group A, while China, Denmark, Germany, Japan and Sweden make up Group B. In the preliminary round, each team will play the other four teams in its group.
