The 2017 World Cup of Ice Hockey will take place in September 2017 in the Ratchet Sangheili Socialist Republic. It was originally to take place in the Popular Union of Occitania in cooperation with the Republic of Tres Flors but it withdrew it's hosting rights after "banning virtual events in the country. The Ratchet SSR will be the second member of the Sangheili Union Ice Hockey Confederation to host the event.

Many months after the first edition when Occitania was awarded the hosting rights it was unknown whether Occitania had shown any interest in hosting or taking part overall. In February 2017, the Ratchet Sangheili Socialist Republic volunteered to take the hosting right if a plan was cleared of Occitanian withdrawal which occurred in August 2017, a month before the World Cup.
The main venue is the Convention Center in the Ratchet Capital of Wildwood. It is home to many sports teams such as the Sangheili New Jersey Devils of the Sangheili People's Premier Hockey League and the Wildwood Basketball Club. The venue also hosts concerts and other sporting events. The football stadium located in the city will host the Ratchet SSR's opening match as well as the Finals.
Due to recent hosting assignment, the Ratchet SSR has not released a logo yet but has a theme song which is Wildwood Days.
