This was the final time the event was known as the "IPC Ice Sledge Hockey World Championships". On November 30, 2016, the International Paralympic Committee adopted the "World Para" brand across the ten sports it governs, the official name of the sport changed from "sledge hockey" to "Para ice hockey", and the event became the World Para Ice Hockey Championships.[2]

The World Championships for B-Pool teams (Austria, Great Britain, Poland, Slovakia, South Korea, Sweden) was held at Östersund Arena in Östersund, Sweden, from March 15 to March 21, 2015.
