The World Championship in Ice Hockey which will take place in May 2015 in Prague and its mascots are in Ostrava. Famous bed-time story characters Bob and Bobek will support the Czech team and guide us through the tournament. Popular "rabbits from the hat" in ice hockey dresses were first introduced by representatives of the Czech Ice Hockey Association at a press conference in the Clarion Hotel Prague Old Town.
The chairman of the Czech Ice Hockey Association Tomáš Král, executive director of Czech Television Petr Dvořák and the author of the ice hockey version of Bob and Bobek, the artist and stage designer Alex Dowis, were all present at the ceremonial revealing. Clarion hotels, the official partner of the Czech Ice Hockey Association, will provide accommodation and catering to the ice hockey team and implementation team within the championship.
