Over 50.000 tickets gone.

While I do think that there will be quite a few people that have no idea about hockey and just bought tickets because it sounds cool I also think that the majority will be German hockey fans and the atmosphere should be great.

I personally know that about 300 fans of my favourite club are going and we don't really have a huge fanbase.

I'm pretty sure that thousands of fans from Cologne, Berlin, Mannheim, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Iserlohn and Bavaria and all the other 1. and 2. Bundesliga clubs have bought tickets already, you just need to read in the forums.

It's going to be an amazing experience. I can hardly wait. Should be a huge party.

60000 tickets sold until today and more than a yeah to go. They should have picked a bigger arena.

Ticket-selling will be stopped soon, as 10,000 tickets have to be held back for the opponent's fans.

Now, all tickets for German fans are sold out and the rest of 10 000 tickets are only available for the guest-fans.

It really looks like a new world record 2010 in Germany.

In all likelihood, Finland is going to be the opponent.

Which is basically the best thing that could possibly happen both for international expansion of the sport and to raise interest in Germany, especially towards the youth. How many times have we heard great players saying that they got hooked on hockey for the first time when they watch big international events (1972-74 Summit Series, Canada Cup, Olympics...)? While it's only a WC, it should only bring good things to german hockey.

Finland is official according to del.org. It says that Finland and the US are ranked 4th and 5th respectively, no matter what the outcome of the current tournament will be.

I've seen this on the offical site a few days ago.

The opening game on May 7, 2010 will be organized as a truly historic event in the VELTINS-Arena of Gelsenkirchen. Selling out the arena with a capacity of 75,976 would represent a "GUINNESS WORLD RECORD (TM)". The full contingent of over 60,000 tickets of pre-event sales phase 1 is now gone. Some few remaining tickets are currently still available in combination with other World Championship tickets and within hospitality packages. Some more tickets for this game shall go on sale by May 2009.

AFAIK German group will also include USA, Finland and Denmark, so one of those is opponent.

This is a disappointing decision, surely it would be better for the atmosphere to have 10 000 Finnish fans for a game like this....??

Germany - USA it is then. I read earlier that Finland would play but those reports must have been wrong.

First report I saw had Germany versus the 2009 4th place team, second report was Germany-Finland, and now this final announcement seems to confirm the first report. Seems the Finland thing may just have been a rumor that was blown out of proportion.

According to Finnish papers Finland were offered the game but coach(?) Jalonen turned it down. Something about not wanting to take part in such exhibitons. Also Germany would have prefered to play against the USA anyway.
