"As travelling to Helsinki is easy for many Russians, we expect this to be like a home tournament to our neighbors - both the team and Russian fans," says Matti Nurminen, the Finnish General Secretary.
"For example from St. Petersburg, there are several train connections per day to Helsinki. The train ride takes only 3,5 hours and there is a stop right next to Hartwall Arena."
The organizers warmly welcome Russian fans to take advantage of the games being played in Helsinki. They also want to make it as easy as possible for Russian fans to buy tickets to their favorite games.
Single tickets to Team Russia games are now available also at the Russian websites www.parter.ru
- in Russian of course. In addition tickets can be bought from the Finnish ticket operator Lippupiste www.lippu.fi/igra
"At the moment the Russia-Finland game on Friday, May 10, is almost sold out. For the rest of the games, there are still tickets available," Nurminen says.
Those who want to include travel services in their package are asked to contact Russian sports travel agencies or the official travel agency Event Travel Finland. High class hospitality services are provided by Infront Finland and sky box rental service is operated by the organizers.
