The event takes place from 3 to 10 November.

A single session of play on the opening Saturday (3 November) will see the men’s teams take to the ice where hosts and returning champions, Korea, will face China in a repeat of last year’s final.

In the same session, last year’s men’s bronze medal game will be replayed between Australia and Japan.

The women’s competition begins the following day (Sunday 4 November) and will see the Olympic silver medallists and the 2016 and 2017 Pacific-Asia champions, Korea, begin their title defence against 2017 bronze medal winners, China.

2017 women’s silver medal winners, Japan, will begin their competition against Australia in the same session.

The round-robin stage continues until Thursday 8 November, followed immediately that evening at 19.00 (Korean Standard Time, UTC +9) by the first women’s semi-final game.

Both men’s semi-finals and the remaining women’s semi-final will take place on Friday 9 November.

The women’s gold medal game will take place on Saturday 10 November at 12.30 (KST) and will be followed by the men’s gold medal game at 16.30 (KST) later that day.
