Three months after the start of the ticket sale for the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, the second phase is just about to begin.
This will allow fans to buy tickets for particular games.
The launch of the second phase is set for 12 February at 13:00. Tickets will be available for sale via internet, at Sazka terminals and at both arenas that will host the tournament – O2 arena in Prague and CEZ Arena in Ostrava.
“The first stage of the ticket sale confirmed that we are organizing a very special event –we sold 328 585 tickets in three months, which is 45 percent of all available tickets,”said Marketa Sterbova, 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Organizing Committee General Secretary.
The first stage started on 4 November and, after only five hours, all available packages with any of the Czech team's games in a preliminary round were booked. During the autumn, the 2015 IIHF WM Organizing Committee released the tickets from unapplied reservations back for online sale.
In the second stage, individual tickets will be sold for particular games. Should tickets reserved for tournament partners become available, the 2015 IIHF WM OC will release these tickets to the sale channels.
Due to a limited number of available tickets, there will be a limit for purchase of 10 tickets per person during sales at O2 arena and CEZ Arena.
The 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship will take place in the Czech Republic from 1 – 17 May.
The ticket prices for single preliminary round games range from CZK 190 (€ 7) to CZK 1,690 (€ 61). The quarter-final games are priced in two categories: CZK 2,390 (€ 86) and CZK 2,990 (€ 107).
The prices of tickets for the remaining playoff round games (O2 arena) are as follows: semi-finals - CZK 4,690 (€ 168) and CZK 5,790 (€ 208); bronze medal game CZK 4,290 (€ 154) and CZK 5,390 (€ 194); gold medal game CZK 7,190 (€ 258) and CZK 8,990 (€ 323). Note: The amounts in EUR are INDICATIVE only. Tickets must be paid in CZK.
