Kometa is second most successful ice hockey club in the Czech Republic with 11 Czechoslovak league titles, but last one is from 1966. After that it went downhill and in 1996 the team was relegated and returned back to Extraliga in 2009. Right now Brno is in the middle of hockey feaver. Kometa reached 2012 Extraliga play-off final. Home games will be 13th/14th April (19th April if needed). Almost all games are sold out and fans camp in front of ticket offices to get some tickets. Ticket prices for final are officially 520-700 CZK (27,50-37 USD), I heard prices on black market are up to 160 USD.
New season will start in September, ticket prices for this one were 7-14 USD

Edit: also if you like junior hockey, part of IIHF U18 WC (including semifinal and final games) will be played in Brno.

Edit 2: and even more, last tournament of Euro Hockey Tour will be played in Brno. It is tournament between Czech, Russia, Finland and Sweden. Those teams usualy have close to final WC rooster there, so there can be some good players that haven't reached NHL playoffs.
