The World Championship will be held in Bratislava and Košice between April 29 and May 15. Ftáčnik said he was impressed to see what Bratislava's newly reconstructed sports arena looks like.

"I'm satisfied, because the last time we were here on an inspection the stadium still looked like a construction site. Now it looks more like a stadium," Ftáčnik told TASR.

The main arena, covering an area of more than 10,000 square metres, should be ready to host nearly 10,000 spectators and carried a total renovation price tag of about €86 million.
