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 En, 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.
