Great Britain have arrived in Prague ahead of their World Championship opener in Canada on Saturday.

GB left their pre-tournament training camp base this morning in Slany for the short trip to Prague and got their first look at the impressive 17,383-seater 02 Arena.

The building is the third-largest ice hockey rink in Europe and was opened in March 2004.

It hosted its first top-flight World Championship in the same year and again in 2015.

GB will also play Finland, Switzerland, Denmark, Czechia, Norway and Austria in Group A.

Group B is being held in Ostrava and consists of France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden and the USA.

The top four teams in each group progress to the knockout stages.
