MINSK, Belarus (AP) - The International Ice Hockey Federation says it has chosen Denmark to host the 2018 world championship.

It is for the first time that Denmark will organize the annual tournament.

The Danish bit to host the worlds in Copenhagen and Herning defeated a bid by Latvia 95-12 in a vote Friday.

The Czech Republic will host the worlds in Prague and Ostrava in 2015 and then the championship moves to Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia in 2016.

Paris and the German city of Cologne will co-host the worlds in 2017.
