|40,000 seats! Twenty thousand a game! These crowds will comfortably beat the UKís current record attendance of 17,245 which was set by Manchesterís arena in 1997. And they will be the biggest crowds by far to see ice hockey in our capital city since the post-World War II era.
The NHLís TV promotions during the Stanley Cup finals on NASN and Five obviously succeeded magnificently, which proves the power of TV advertising and showing your games on TV.
These phenomenal ticket sales must put the 02 in the frame as a possible venue for the first Victoria Cup, a mouth-watering clash between the top European club side and a leading NHL team which is scheduled for September next year.
straight + hard = down baby!
