The fans are used to and prefer having the tournament in late April/early May. Many Finns plan vacation trips around it.

Also when it comes to Swedes not having an interest in the Worlds, every one knows the biggest fault last year was the ticket prices. They came to their senses and the prices are more affordable for this year's tournament.
Biggest fault yes, but at the same time, if it was a football european/world cup game, the prices could have been 500 euros/ticket and an arena 4x as big as Globen would still easily be sold out. The prices had to be lowered because they thought the interest was bigger than it was. If that tournament was with Canada in Toronto it would be sold out with even higher prices than we had in the hockey championship in Sweden.
