Any hockey during Christmas?

Postby Stephanie27 » 15-Jul-08 16:17

Hi there,

My husband and I will be in Prague from Dec 24-27 and we were hoping that we might catch a hockey game.

Any one know if the schedules have been published yet or if the profesional teams even play that time of year?

Also where might we buy jerseys from the Prague teams or the national team?

All help or tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Stephanie

Thank you so much! You are just awesome. :)

So we need to purchase tickets in advance or can we just get them at the rink on the day of the game?

We are so excited!!!!!!

Ususally the tickets are available on the day of match, too, but you can't be sure. It depends also if the team is doing well etc. 8)

take a look at O2Arena.cz - you may be able to buy tickets online there.
I have seen hockey games at that venue - great place and right at a Metro stop!

Awesome - thanks!

We are going to buy tickets once we get there. The arena looks very nice. Should be a fun game!

I heard that we need to ask for tickets on the home side, not the vistors side...does that really matter? Lol.

Thanks again,
Stephanie

ummm...

just noticed it is Sparta vs. Pardubice - how come they are playing at O2 Arena? Thought that was Slavia's home turf. Is the old T-Mobile stadium being worked on?

Glenn, you probably confused the official name of the hockey league ("O2 extraliga") with the place. I suppose the match will take place in the former T-mobile arena (the new name is "Arena HC Sparta Praha"), but haven't found it exactly.

Oh I see...
well, the old arena is a different animal altogether but it is a lot of fun - just a bit "rustic" :wink:
