If you want to live really cheap and basically just want a roof over your head, I recommend http://www.couchsurfing.org/ or www.hospitalityclub.org, if you don't mind sleeping on a couch or extra bed at some person you've never met before. It can be a cool experience. As basically all Swedes have very good english, I don't think there will be any language barriers.

As I'm from northern Sweden, I don't know Stockholm all too well, although I've been there dozens of times. Really cool that the Rangers play both games in Sweden, just too bad they didn't play at least one game in Göteborg (Gothenburg), where Hank would've received some extra standing ovations.

Here are the closest hostels to Globen Arena, measured in meters: http://www.vandrarhemskartan.se/Stockholm/Globen/. Unfortunately, it's in Swedish, but if you get stuck, we can probably help you out in this thread.

Here are three close hotels to Globen, not that expensive ones either: http://www.bokahotell.se/hotell-sver...olm/globen-lm/, ranging from 645-850 SEK/ night (€69-91, $100-132). Too bad the SEK is going strong against both $ and € for you guys.

I can see why it's double Stockholm though, NHL officials were very pleased with the last events there, where everything worked and the crowds were up to expectations.

I would imagine it'll be a terrific experience. Provided Rangers won't lose 5-0

Chimp's suggestion regarding couchsurfing is a great one too! That's definitely something you should look into. I love the idea regarding it. With luck, you'll find a hockey/Rangers -fan!

I don't know if there's actually any legit source other than hearsay, but it's been rumored that they would in fact play a training game (or two?) against the King's old club, Frölunda. His brother is captain of the said team, so that would be something.

Oh, and a question to the Swedes; is the traveling card when it comes to buses mandatory nowadays across Sweden? I ran into troubles in Malmö and Norrköping this past summer as they both required for you to have card to travel with buses, cash wouldn't be accepted. Of course Stockholm has underground system so it's probably tad easier there.

It would be cool to go to this match. Especially, from Russia to Sweden small distance.

This would be great. I'd love to play an exhibition with Frolunda- i'm sure Hank would too.

Fellow Finn here but visit Stockholm fairly often. You're right, they wont accept cash in the buses. You can buy single tickets or 8 trip tickets which get stamped every time you travel before from Pressbyråns, you can find a Pressbyrån on every metro station at least. These tickets work in the metro, buses and trams.

Neither can I! Same site (ticnet.se) was linked to on the New York Daily News Blog too though, so I guess that when information is available that's where it will be.

Do season ticket holders get tickets to the game? Season tickets are FULL season, and that would include all preseason and regular season games. I would be pissed as hell if I was a season ticket holder and did not get tickets to these games as part of my season ticket package.

Aren't season tickets for home games only though? I'm not sure how it goes in the US, but I would imagine it's just games at home, and I suppose both are considered away -teams in such occasion.

@ Tickets:

I called my friend who ordered the Tickets for Bern 2008, and he said, that he ordered them directly over SC Bern. So I think we have to order them directly in Stockholm´s Arena where the game is gonna be. If someone got other ideas or sources let it me know guys.

Thx.

They will start to sell the tickets on thursday (14 April).

The best tickets (longside) are 270 USD (The low USD have a big impact, like 5 years ago it would have been more like 170 USD...).

Stage two longside are 160 USD.

Close to the ice short side are 128 USD.

And the cheapest tickets are 80 USD (not that good in the globe arena, you sit really far up).

The best places to get tickets are:
http://www.ticnet.se/index.php?langu...A_header_lang1
and
http://www.globearenas.se/en.aspx

Tickets will be available untill the puck is dropped. The ticket system for these kind of events in Sweden is very flawed, unofficial sites buy up all tickets in a hurry and litterary dubble the ticket-price and sell them. If they sell more then 50% of the tickets its worth while for them, the result is that all games are sold out but there are a lot of empty seats...

As regards hotels et c, I live in Uppsala and commute to Stockholm where I work every day. Natrually I don't stay at a hotel in Stockholm all that often, but if anyone wants help with swedish translation or something feel free to contact me at any time.

I´ll checked how much € the 160$ tickets would be and they´re arround 110€. So it seems that I´ll watch only 1 game there. The plan was to stay a week, but with that kinda prices and sweden not know for beeing a cheap country it´s gonna be a 2 Day trip. but I´ll be there

Its the worst timing since the Krona is so high these days. Like 5-10 years ago those tickets are like 90 USD (still pretty expensive, but not that overpriced in USD).

A good ticket to the SEL is like 20-30 USD, so its very expensive in a swedish perspective too...

I´m really happy the Rangers are coming to Sweden. To bad it´s the wrong town though. It would be nothing but pure magic in Gothenburg. I will be there for both games for sure. What´s even better is that me and my brother are planning a week or two in New York in february 2012. So I´m hoping to catch at least four or five live games this season.
