The 2020 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships will be the 84th such event hosted by the International Ice Hockey Federation. Teams will participate in several levels of competition, including the inaugural competition in the newly created Division IV. The competition will also serve as qualifications for division placements in the 2021 competition.

Restructuring by the IIHF led to several changes in the lower divisions of the 2020 World Championships. Division III was re-named Division IIIA, the Division III qualification tournament was renamed Division IIIB, and Division IV was created, with the latter two tournaments consisting of four teams each instead of the standard six. The bottom two teams in the 2019 Division III qualification tournament were assigned to the new Division IV, along with newcomers Malaysia and the Philippines.
