2011 worlds - Japan
2012 worlds - Nice, France

I'm sure Sochi will have other high level international test events closer to the date. Vancouver hosted nationals and four continents in preparation for the 2010 Games.

Worlds has been in Europe in 2008, 2010, and 2012. Canada had been on a cycle for every 5 years. This will be 7 years between worlds, so it's time.

Official confirmation of Winnipegís bid :): http://www.cjob.com/Sports/Local/Story.aspx?ID=1203673

Quebec City would be my next choice (although the arena is crap). Wonder if this is the reason Skate Canada has delayed announcing next seasonís locations for Skate Canada and Canadians until April?

Why not China??? or Korea?? lol
China got their pairs in both senior and junior (who will be senior by then). And Korea, got Kim and mini Kim!! I wish Yuna stay upto Sochi and collect another Olympics Gold and multiply world title. Kim vs. Asada vs. Marai, that should make interesting battle.

Please, calling all skate gods and anyone else who wants to listen: WINNIPEG!! We've had nothing here since Nationals in 2001 and that was at the old arena.

The article says that the Championships will be in the first week of March...seems earlier than usual.

Ottawa or Toronto, please....direct flights from my local airport, 10 minutes from my house. I love Quebec City and the Chateau Frontenac...but that CocaCola or Pepsi Coliseum is the pitts, sorry to say...based on SkCanada 2007 trip there. Most uncomfortable seats ever for a major skating event. Located in the boonies, far from the main part of city.

I disagree with Toronto or Ottawa. Honestly, Nationals lately have been in the east (London, Ottawa, Saskatchewan have had them twice within the last few years!) Vancouver had many events because of the Olympics, but here, nada. We get SOI and that's it. We've had nothing competition-wise in Winnipeg since 2001 unless you count World Team Challenge 2004. The hotels are walking distance to the arena, some even have access to the tunnels so you don't even need to go outside!

I am wondering if this is the reason why SC is delaying announcement of next year's Nationals. If Winnipeg does get the nod, perhaps they will have Nats here next year or the year after?

I've been dying for Nats to come back here; so if we get Worlds, chances are we will get Canadians before as well.

I honestly had thought that worlds would be held in Canada in 2011 or 2012, but Skate Canada may have been holding out for the just-before-the-Olympics worlds in 2013, since those worlds are generally considered the most desirable. It's time the world championships got back to Canada.

You've just had the Olympics. Stop being greedy. :P
