2014 IIHF World Championship tickets to go on sale 30 September

Tickets for the 2014 IIHF World Championship will be available from 30 September, Chairman of the Belarusian Ice Hockey Federation Yevgeny Vorsin told Belarusian and Russian media which take part in a press tour prior to the world championship in Minsk.
In the first stage, certificates for all-match tickets will go on sale. The cost of this ticket group will be from €300 to €2,000, said Director of the TicketPro company Kirill Sushchinsky. From 16 October the team specific ticket series and matchday ticket series (two games at each venue, Minsk Arena and Chizhovka Arena) will go on sale. Individual match tickets will be available from 1 December. The tickets can be bought via the Internet and in the ticket offices which list is available on TicketPro's website.

Kirill Sushchinsky also noted that tickets for all matches or team specific tickets are much cheaper than individual match tickets. A season ticket for all matches at Minsk Arena is 25% cheaper than the total cost of tickets for individual games at this venue. In Chizhovka Arena's case, this figure is 30%. The cost of individual match tickets will range from €6 to €400.

Director of the Tsentrkurort company Oleg Mikhailov said that during the 2014 IIHF World Championship about 20,000 foreign fans are expected visit the Belarusian capital. Most of them will be from Russia and Latvia. In his words, the organizers expect from 5,000 to 6,000 Latvian ice hockey enthusiasts. Belarus will introduce a visa-free entry during the world championship. To come to Belarus, hockey fans will need only a valid passport and tickets for matches. Moreover, ticket owners will be able to get the so-called tourist's travel document which gives the right to use any public transport in Minsk free of charge.  

The guests will be able to stay in comfortable hotels which prices will not be increased prior to the championship. The latter was agreed by directors of Minsk's hotels in order to attract more tourists. A 5,000-capacity village for hockey fans will be organized with all necessary facilities and a proper cultural program. The cost of living in this village will be reasonable, about €20 per person, Oleg Mikhailov said.
