Like most people in this thread I think it is ridiculous to discourage marginal fans from going by jacking up the ticket prices to stupid levels. You want the world cup to be a party for all involved. What good does it do to the status of the tournament if most games not played by the host nations will have arenas 1/4 full.
The swedish and finnish federations should swallow their pride and release tickets for games not involving any of the big 6 for around 100SEK or €10. At least that would make people go to the games.
I can only speak for the swedish audience, but in general most people wouldn't pay much to see teams other than Tre Kronor. It's not like in canada where they sell out u20 games between Germany and Latvia... but that's what the federation seems to think.
Do it again and do it right.
I'm going as a 'neutral' and not cheering for any team, just hoping to see some good hockey
