I don't really understand, they say Hartwall only has 7000 tickets for sale and the Globe only has 10000 per game, but how come Hartwall said they had 12000 for Finlands game yesterday? And what's the rest, journalists? Surely it can't be different from when the NHL opened in both these arenas, event-wise?

And if the official number was 7000 in Sweden's game, which I can't believe for the life of me, can they really say that the arena was full to 7/10ths? No way.

They are lowering all unsold 1295 SEK (145 euros) tickets to 395 SEK (45 euros). Tickets at 1495 SEK (170 euros) and 795 SEK (90 euros) stays the same. So about 2400 seats extra now available at the lowest ticket cost.

Unfortunately this does not solve the problem with foreign fans not affording the trip to Stockholm. Also, NOW they are going to have a drive to get swedish hockeyclubs to bring their hockeyplaying kids to the arenas. NOW(!). Special offers to the clubs should have been made a long time ago.

But surely they had sponsors etc. during the NHL games too? And the attendance there was officially full house.

We should see quite much more people now in Globen right? 40 euros for ticket is crazy cheap.

I don't think either Globens or Hartwalls numbers where correct.

I think Ericsson Globe got 13 500 but only tickets for 10 000. Sounded strange. Really strange.

I'm fully aware, but I heard numbers that for Finlands game there were 12k people there yesterday, people said that was counting highly, and today the swedish federation says that Hartwall only has 7000 sellable tickets? Are sponsors and freeibes *really* making up half the arena?

Not sure about the numbers. Though I know these games has huge companies paid attendance for Finland games --> you can see it in the lack of atmosphere.

They are not lowering all tickets to 45 euros. This will make 2400 more seats available at this low cost.

At ticnet it says "395.00 SEK - 795.00/1295.00/1495.00 SEK" for every section to the game against Denmark. What is that even supposed to mean? They have different prices for the same section?

All tickets availible on Ticnet atm are priced at 395;- which should count as "all" tickets.

I guess that "all tickets at 395" is just phase two in all this chaos. All tickets is not 395 if we are to go on the information from Englund during the pressconference. But hey, if it says 395 - just buy it!

Haha, this blows big time. The people organizing the event should have realized a long time ago that tickets were not selling, and lowered prices.
I'd be real pissed off if i bought tickets for the original price, just to find out that they now lower the prices.
The worst part is all the people from abroad that decided not going to Sweden/Finland after seeing what tickets cost, they wont come now even if they give the tickets away.

The media takes up more seats/room in a tournament the scale of this so there's less seats for public. I think Kummola said on Thursday's tv spectacle that something like 200-250 journalists are attending the Worlds.

In case it wasn't mentioned before, Finland are planning on profit of 8 million(but would be happy with 6-7 million) euros for this year's WC, where as Sweden we're planning for the same number for this AND next year's tournament. Slovakia profited 2 million euros for last year's WC, all of which went to junior and women's/girls hockey. Talk about greed ruining the tournament...
