2014 WJC in Sweden. When? and How? | General talk (tickets, hotels, etc)
So I know its a little early as this tournament just started but I've finally given in. I wanna make the trip to Malmo for the 2014 tournament. I fully understand how ticket packages work when the tournament is here in Canada but does anyone know when and how ticket packages for next year will be made available? 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.
the company is pricey, but i know people who have used them before and they were good
I am not 100% on it yet, but i think the total ticket package is expected to be about half the price ($600 as opposed to $1200 in Canada). The biggest cost will be the flights though. While we were just ballparking costs, it seems like flights to Copenhagen are around $1500 bucks. Obviously there might be better cities to fly into, and the prices change based on timing.
TBH i expect it to cost around 3k - 4k for me flying from Western Canada and staying in hostels where possible.
Flights from Eastern Canada to Copenhagen/Malmö shouldn't cost more than 1000 CDN both ways. Tickets will probably be dirt cheap to aquire later on as well, especially to the non-Swedish, non-playoff games.
I would view this as a vacation to Copenhagen and not Malmo. No offense to anybody but when I was there years ago Malmo was a complete dump. Copenhagen is a gem however.
Yeah, basically you could spend most of the time in Copenhagen and just cross the bridge for the games. It's also easy to go to other places in Europe cheaply from that area, so no need to be stuck in Malmö.
Malmö is not nearly as bad as some posters are making out. I lived (ironically) in Copenhagen for 16months, and have traveled most of Sweden. It's nothing spectacular, but it has it's sites/history/gems.
Malmö is bad. Better of to live in copenhagen and travel to Malmö for the games, that would be a much more awesome experince. The tournament should have been held in Västernorrland (Timrå, Sundsvall, Övik) or in Stockholm/Gothenburg).
Malmö is a mess. If you do decide to go there, at least stay at the hotel room after dark, and don't wander off to the real bad parts (IE Rosengård). And before you say I don't know what I am talkning about: I was born and raised in Malmö. Now moved away from the lost city. Far away.
