First phase sales for ticket draw winners only, second phase for all participants
The competition is being held to provide the opportunity to purchase up to 6 tickets for one game day of the Preliminary Round of the 2024 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship. In the second phase, which is now opened and will last until September 15, each participant can select their preferred team and the specific daily package that they are interested in. If someone did not register during the first phase, they will complete both registration parts at once.
The draw will take place from September 18 to 24, 2023. The participants can be selected for each game day according to their preferences in the registration form and have the opportunity to purchase tickets for multiple game days. The ticket purchasing system for users with priority rights will be accessible from October 2 at 10:00 until October 4, 2023, at 23:59 CET. Unsold tickets will be available during the second phase of priority purchase from October 6 to 8, 2023, until 23:59. The second phase of priority purchase will be based on a "first come, first served" principle. Just a few days later, on October 10 at 10:00, the public ticket sale will start.
The competition for priority ticket purchasing rights and all ticket information is available on the official event website 2024.iihfworlds.com/tickets.
