The WBHF brings its marquee event to the great city by the three rivers.  Many only know Pittsburgh as a steel town and for its famous football team, the Steelers.  The city is rich with cultural significance in the arts and cuisine, featuring beautiful water fronts and a vibrant downtown core.  It is one of America’s hidden secrets.

The city and surrounding communities also boast one of the strongest regions of dekhockey (ball hockey) in the USA, producing some of the best American players for many years.

Early projections have 20 nations participating in the Men’s WC.  In addition, the Women’s WC will offer the largest international tournament ever with 12 nations expected to compete.

The week-long event will revolve around USA’s Memorial Day in late May.

Further details will be released in the coming weeks.
