The release of tickets for individual games is in line with the original plans of the organizing committee. The ticket packages have been for sale since last May.
"Our goal from the start was to fill the Globe Arena during the World event and the next phase is to sell the remaining individual tickets for each game played in Stockholm," said Lars G Karlsson, general secretary of the Swedish organizing committee.
So far, some 120 000 of 300 000 tickets for the games in Sweden have been sold, including all of the most exclusive seats. There are still tickets available for all the games. The opening game will be played on May 4 in the Stockholm group including Sweden, Czech Republic, Germany, Russia, Norway, Denmark, Latvia and Italy.
"With the individual game tickets now for sales, a family of four can see a game with the home team Sweden for less than 1600 SEK (170 Euro)," said Christer Englund, chairman of the Swedish Ice Hockey Association and of the organizing committee.
All tickets are for sales at: www.ticnet.se (Ticnet)
For the games played in Helsinki, individual tickets are sold at www.lippu.fi
