Unlike Stockholm, this doesn't seem to be a problem in Skåne for whatever reason. Not saying it never happens but it's probably not as frequent.

Negotiating the price upfront "always" works in Malmö -- if it doesn't, I myself would probably find another cab.

Uh, it shouldn't come as a surprise to any local if our cab companys are trying to rip of the tourists.
Negotiating the price upfront isn't always easy for a tourist who aren't aware of what it should cost, not to mention what the real distance is.
If you have to use a cab please be aware of this, else you'll end up riding three laps around town while the smiling cabbie says something like: closests way, only for you my friend!

Just find a good taxi company in the phonebook(can ask in a travelstore), get a map to see distance, and find out beforehand how much they take. Normal is around 40 kronor/kilometer. Often gets cheaper the longer u travel.

I don't see the point of taking cabs around the city unless you're staying remote or going somewhere in the "off hours".

Public transportation is decent enough for a WJC visitors needs I'd imagine. You can check out their homepage at http://www.skanetrafiken.se/template...epslanguage=EN

A and O will suffice as a replacement for ÅÄÖ in the travel planner. "Malmö Isstadion" is the station for the small arena where Group A(?) is played and "Malmö Hyllie" is the station for Malmö Arena where Group B plays.

It's been dealt with in this thread already so here's the link.

Are the tickets for the whole day or just for one game?

Depends if we win or not. Hockey tournaments in Sweden goes like this: If we win, holy crap this is huge!
If we lose: Who cares, it's just <WHC or U20 WHC>.

Just picked up tickets for Junior game Nov 21 in Oshawa, Ontario. Team Canada takes on Team Russia. Can't wait to get a sneak peak of the team and cheer on the boys at home 1 month before we leave to watch the World Junior Tournament in Malmo.

I'm thinking I'll be hopping over from London for a couple preliminary round games. I'm so pumped about ticket prices! Should be a lot of fun!

its big in malmö also, fireworks everywhere and drunk people.

Hey we should put a game in the ice rink there. Would that not be a great integration tool?

There's literally something like 25 seats left in the lower bowl. Final will have 13k attendance or whatever the capacity will be for sure. That's a very good start this early.

Yeah, I've just finally been checking into ticket availability these past few days and have been surprised/impressed, especially with how little is left for the medal round games. Perhaps this was a case of me being a pompous Canadian, but I decided months ago that I would try and see some games in Malmo and just assumed that tickets would be readily available all the way. I understand that Sweden likes hockey, but just didn't think tickets sold out really anywhere outside Canada. So I think this is great, but am also kicking myself a bit for not checking sooner. It will be great though if there are a lots of sell outs!

How much they might be (I'm hoping the tickets themselves are cheaper in Europe then when its played in NA)

Me and a buddy may be down to make the trip to Sweden. I've never been to Europe so why not start with Sweden at Christmas

Any info regarding price, trip packages, cost of anything would be greatly appreciated.
So Torts you started this thread and got me fired up for this tournament. Did you and your bud ever end up getting tickets for Malmo. I am so stoked for this tourney I'm half packed already.

Welcome to the Fan Zone
Fans get their place to warm up for World Juniors
Published 01.10.2013 19:13 | Author Anders Feltenmark

During the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship in Malmö a Fan Zone will be built up at Baltiska Hallen close to the Malmö Isstadion.

Fans can enjoy an attractive Fan Zone in proximity of the venues at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Everybody is welcome at the Fan Zone, young and old, for a warm-up before the games and a chance to get into World Junior Championship mood for those with or without a ticket.

Opening hours: 12:00 to 21:00

On all game days from December 26 to January 5 (closed on January 1)

Free admission!

On-site there will be a stage with various program items, but also activities such as:
• Cage Hockey - tournament
• Shooting Ramp
• 3-fight
• Contests
• Table hockey games and tournaments
• Restaurant and Sports Bar
• NHL 13 tournament
• Face Painting
• Speed Shooting
• Souvenir Sales
• Try on Hockey
• Cross Fit

It's completely free to visit the Fan Zone area, whether you have tickets to hockey games or not.

There will be both a lounge area which serves simple food and a sports bar with license to serve drinks, which makes the area a great place to spend time before and after the games and in the break between the periods.

When the program for the stage is completed it will be published along with other information on worldjunior2014.com and swehockey.se.

Welcome to the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship and its Fan Zone!

Although the Fan Zone has been known for quite some time, it's the only real news about the tourney that has emerged lately.
I'm kinda hoping the WJC will be noticed around town too, like the Eurovision thingey was.
The weather in Dec/Jan is a bit more tricky for outdoor stuff of course.
