Today starts the B World Cup in Uruguay

From today and during all week will take place the 15th edition of B World Cup. For the third time, Uruguay hosts this important competition which selects the last 3 countries to play the A World Cup (taking place next year in Angola). Usually is a competition where the uncertainty of countries to compete lasts until the opening ceremony. At this time only 9 countries will dispute the three first places, which ensures the promotion to main World Cup, including:
  1. Austria - 4th place in 2010 edition. Searching hard to be in Angola 2013.
  2. England - relegated from San Juan 2012, it is the home-country of roller hockey, so either goal than promotion is searched.
  3. Egypt - after the revolution in 2011, the news about roller hockey disappear so the fans wait for this World Cup to see how is the sport after so much obstacles.
  4. Israel -  consider as one of the best examples of sustainable growth on our sport, counts with the experience of his Spanish coach which expects to see his team in Angola next year.
  5. Macau - the best of Asia roller hockey is on this team, but the continuous non-support by local Government with better conditions to practice and develop the sport, reduce the targets for the World Cup.
  6. Mexico - the last participation in this competition remounts to 2006, also in Uruguay. Since them a big crisis stop the development of this sport in Mexico. The last news indicates that finally there's light for the future and again almost only roller hockey players will be part of the national team.
  7. Netherlands - also relegated from San Juan World Cup is one of the best teams presented. The sport seems to be gaining a new path for the future with a national championship organized each year and a successful team in German League.
  8. South Africa - the promotion to last A World Cup could mean a better development to roller hockey in such important country, but since them there wasn't big changes.
  9. Uruguay - the host country is increasing the promotion to this sport day by day, and this competition is faced as the right opportunity to be part of the main group of roller hockey.
The opening ceremony will be today at at 7:30 pm (+3 GMT), and the first match will happen next at 9pm between Uruguay and Mexico.
