But they struglle very fast and the ice hockey had and has a big rival in soccer.
Unfortunattley, the championship season i was not there. But i realy enjoyed it, and after the final game i was soooo drunk
Oh yeah, that was a time....
I donīt really take the soccer argument, Žilina is the 4th biggest town in country with round 85 000 inhabitants and while their soccer team is currently much better than their hockey team and they have a nice stadium the most recent home league game the attendance was around 2000. canīt really say that it is much of a competition to hockey in the town....
