Attractive social program

The main attraction of the 2009 IIHF World Championship is of course the 56 ice hockey games that will be played out from April 24 to May 10, 2009. The Organizing Committee has however additionally put together an attractive social program. The 2009 IIHF World Championship is intended to be a truly incomparable happening - both on and by the rink. To this end, numerous productions and show acts have been booked that exceed the usual championship entertainment norms by far.

Berne is in itself a fully refurbished and expanded arena that awaits its inauguration - in preparation for this major sports event, the 40-year-old Allmend Stadium was upgraded to become a modern ice arena. And in Zurich-Kloten, the arena was given its World Championship make-over in record time after the final Swiss Playoff Finals were held on Easter Monday.
