175,000 tickets gone
Already 175,000 tickets have been sold within the so far practised package ticket sales. "We are more than pleased with this result and we are happy to be able to start the sales of single game tickets from such a solid basis now, well ahead of Christmas. A ticket for the 2010 IIHF WM will please every ice hockey fan and therefore the full range of our ticket offer is now available," says Franz Reindl, head of the World Championship organizing committee.
75% of Tickets for German games in Cologne sold
At present, tickets are still available for all 55 games in Cologne and Mannheim. However, 75% of the tickets for the preliminary round games of the German team in Cologne are already sold. Franz Reindl predicts "a lightning-fast sell-out" of those games and recommends "not to hesitate too long anymore". Also strongly requested are all games as of the quarterfinals as well as the preliminary round games of Canada, Latvia and Switzerland in Mannheim. Tickets for the opening game USA vs. Germany in Gelsenkirchen are only left within some combined ticket- and hospitality packages.
