Berlin has been announced as host of the 2019 World Para Ice Hockey Championships B-Pool.
The event, taking place from November 17 to 22, follows on from the A-Pool edition held earlier this year in Czech city Ostrava.
Six teams will fight for the chance to move up to the 2021 World Championships A-Pool, with only the top-two finishers doing so.
The last-placed team will be relegated to the 2020 World Championships C-Pool.
The round-robin format held at the Eissporthalle Charlottenburg ("PO9") will feature hosts Germany leading the rankings, followed by Russia, Slovakia, Great Britain, Poland and China.
Germany will hope home advantage boosts their chances of a return to the A-Pool for the first time since their relegation in 2017.
Despite being the lowest-ranked nation, China are expected to show that numbers do not matter.
They fielded their first international squad last November at the World Championships C-Pool in the Finnish village of Vierumäki, where they stormed to a tournament win to earn their spot in Berlin.
Russia, the silver medallists from the Sochi 2014 Winter Paralympic Games, will also be one to watch.
They displayed their talent at the Continental Cup in June, when their 'A' team won all three games without conceding a goal.
The last World Championships B-Pool took place in Japanese city Tomakomai in 2016.
Czech Republic beat Japan to the gold medal as both teams moved up to the A-Pool, while Slovakia came away with the bronze medal.
