IIHF announced that the 2021 world juniors which were shifted because of the pandemic will still take place on the Edmonton bubble but it is going to be on a different day. The format for that will remain but there could be more restrictions because of the pandemic. This edition is going to take place without fans. It was originally meant for Edmonton and Red Deer hosting; this will no longer hold that way. Only Edmonton will host it while the edition of 2022 will be cohosted by Edmonton and Red Deer.The organizers want to play the game only in a safe environment.
