Calling Timrå a city would be the exaggeration of the century. Small place that smells like **** and has an arena in the middle of the forest. It's too hard to get from Sundsvall to E
n, so the attendance would be terrible (main reason for Timrås poor attendance in the SEL). If Sundsvall had a decent arena I think Ö-vik/Sundsvall wouldn't be such a bad idea. Sundsvall isn't that bad of a city if you stay for a week or two. Has hotels, pubs, cinema, bowling or w/e you wanna do to stay entertained, but it's an awful place to live imo.
Best choice of city imo would be Gothenburg.
I think no matter where it's held, games like Latvia - Switzerland will have low attendance. It's not like people will go to see their NHL teams prospects, there is a need for higher entertainment. If it's marketed well enough and the tickets aren't too expensive, the decent games will perhaps not all be sold out, but definitly have a decent attendance.
