yes,yes - I'm glad it is finally official - have heard the rumors for a while and have been planning my trip accordingly. will surely be there for the game. I have 6 to 10 people who want to make the trip with me - some of them have been to Prague before but most of them are relying on my stories about Prague and want to join in the fun. Will probably buy plane tickets shortly. The Lightning aren't doing so well this year but, you never know. Anyway, am really excited about seeing them play in Sazka Arena (a wonderful venue) - maybe a bunch of us can get together for the game. :D

Do you know the dates? We were at Saska last night for the Slavia-Pardubice match and there was something about it in the programme but it didn't have dates.

It did, however, have the ticket prices. I can't remember what they were but I seem to remember that they were at least ten times the price of a local game. At that rate, they'll have to depend on the likes of Glenn and his friends to fill the stadium because the good folk of Prague won't be able to afford to go!

We will certainly have to meet up at Saska, Glenn - it'd be surreal, like a parallel universe!

The games will be on October 4 and 5 (a Saturday and Sunday) - don't know what the prices will be (can't find any listed on Sazka Arena site) but imagine they will be high compared to regular local prices. I have seen Slavia hockey at Sazka and Sparta hockey at T-Mobile - enjoyed them both very much.

I'm starting to stuff my "piggy bank" now to afford the trip and the game. :)

I read somewhere prices will be similar as Hockey World Championship final match in Sazka Arena.

From this article:
Nejlacinější vstupenky by měly stát 600 korun a nejdražší za 6000 korun.
= "The cheapest tickets should cost 600 CZK and the most expensive ones 6,000 CZK." (1 USD = ~18 CZK atm).
As far as I know, the price isn't official yet though.

Anyone know the face off times ?

I will be in Pardubice that weekend, for the annual Golden Helmet / Zlata Prilba Speedway meetings, and its the 60th Anniversary this year, so instead of just the Under 21 and Senior Golden Helmets, there will also be the World Under 21 championship Fina spread over three days of racingl...

I am looking at the feasibility of getting from Pardubice to Prague on the train, and then to Sazka on the metro, but no doubt it will be tight...

Allyna,

Tickets will go on sale in March or April, according to this link :

http://www.radio.cz/en/article/100108

Also, having checked the Sazka Arena website (http://www.sazkaarena.cz), I notice that on 1st March 2008, it will become the O2 arena, Telefonica O2 having acquired the naming rights for five years
