There will be hundreds of people there, plenty of organizers, players, but mainly fans and spectators. All of these people will have to follow some basic rules, so this prestige championships could occur and everybody could enjoy it as much as possible.

With a ticket, you have secured yourself an entrace in ballparks, but not a seat on the stands. There is a limited capacity on the stands and it can happen that they won’t be able to fit all visitors during some more interesting games. Therefore the fans, who will come earliest will have the best seats. We recommend to all visitors who would like to have the best view tocome early enough. There will be also some seats reserved for journalists, organizers and the teams.

In Hippos arena, there are 500 seats and about 1.500 places for standing. Owners of usual tickets will have an access to all parts except the VIP stands above both dugouts. Above the third base, there will be seats for visitors with VIP cards and above the first base, there will be seats for journalists, organizers and referees. Also, there is a reservation for about 30 seats on the main stand for the drummers of local ice-hockey team HC Rebel. There will be also a VIP tent in the ballpark available for the VIP cards holders only.
