The host city will be officially announced tomorrow (Friday, March 25th) on www.isu.org, although it may be leaked earlier. It's probably going to be Moscow, but that's just speculation. Russia's proposal for the dates are April 25-May 1. (http://newsblogs.chicagotribune.com/sports_globetrotting/2011/03/cinquanta-expects-new-world-skating-site-by-friday.html) Russia will also use the new 14,000 seat MegaSport Arena (http://www.innshopping.ru/en/venues/megasport-arena-moscow/) in Moscow for worlds.

I know. Was waiting for some leak as it seems to have happened

Moscow, what a surprise! ;)

I'm glad the decision has been taken and the dates set. Unlike Speedy, I knew when Easter was and was actually hoping it'd be that week, in which case I might have considered going, but well... I'm just very grateful that Worlds WILL happen and I have no doubt that the Russian organizing committee will manage to put together a pretty good event in just a month.

Спасибо Россия и ФФККР! :)

I'm happy for the skaters that they actually get to compete at Worlds this year. I really hope that the delay hasn't hampered them too much in their training to peak, but I would be willing to bet that most are delighted to be able to end their season the way it should end.....with the final closure of Worlds. Fingers x'd that there are no more injuries and that every competitor remains healthy and fit. Lucky Russian fans to be able to see it (and anyone else who can get there to watch in person). I hope the TV networks can provide coverage for the rest of us. :)

Finally, that's great. I hope the skaters can enjoy the news and bring their best games:encore::biggrinbo
Now it's just to sign on the agenda not to take any other commitment
