The start of the general ticket sale has confirmed the extreme fan interest in the 2024 IIHF WM and over 250,000 tickets have been purchased so far. "We are happy that the ticket operators' sales systems have handled the big rush and that we have not had any breakdowns or other major problems during the opening hours," says Martin Gremlica, ticketing manager of the 2024 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.
During the first hour, fans bought all the daily packages with the Czech team planned for the first phase of the general sale. Almost all the available capacities for Slovak games have also disappeared. "We thank all the fans for the interest shown, thanks to which we would sell out the arena with several times higher capacity. A few minutes after the start of the ticket sales, many fans were bragging about their successful purchase on social networks. In addition to the packages including the Czech games, other attractive daily packages are offered, so all fans have the opportunity to experience the once-in-a-lifetime atmosphere of the Ice Hockey World Championship in Czechia," Martin Gremlica describes the current state of ticketing for the 2024 IIHF WM.
Tickets are currently available for purchase on the official website 2024.iihfworlds.com/tickets. "If fans haven’t managed to get tickets for the home team, they have nothing to be sad about. Over the coming months, we will continue to release the blockings and add more tickets for sale. We will inform all ice hockey fans ahead of time. However, we recommend monitoring our communication channels and social networks," concludes Martin Gremlica.
