Are you a huge ice hockey fan? Or someone who has never watched the game before but would like to know something about this Finnish favorite sport? 

Good news! The KHL ice hockey team Jokerit will offer all the ESN sections in Helsinki and the exchange students the possibility to get a great discount of ice hockey tickets for the game Jokerit against Metallurg Magnitogorsk on Wednesday the 14th of October. Metallurg Magnitogorsk won the Gagarin Cup during the season 2013-2014 and Jokerit did an impressive work last season, because first time playing in the KHL, they made it to the playoffs and the team also has started this season well. There will definitely be a tough game coming up and you shouldn’t miss it!It’s a great opportunity especially for those of you who have never watched ice hockey before. You will get the tickets with a cheaper price, enjoy the good company of other exchange students and experience the atmosphere at Hartwall Arena, the biggest ice hockey arena in Finland. 

Here you can find a link to the webshop where you can buy your ticket: 
http://www.lippu.fi/tickets.html?fun=erdetail&affiliate=JOP&doc=erdetaila&erid=1494720 

The ticket costs 10 euros (normal price 22,50 euros) and there will also be some additional delivery cost depending on what way of dispatching you choose. The link will take you to a website that’s in Finnish but you can change the language into English just below the Jokerit logo in the right part of the site. There are tickets for the different parts of the arena. Unfortunately the description is only in Finnish but when you click the small picture of the arena on the right side of the page, you can see a small map of the arena and find out where the different seats are located. All the seats will be in the upper part of the arena. “Alarivit” means the lower rows, closer to the rink and “ylärivit” means the rows highest up in the arena. 

There are different dispatch types for the ticket and we recommend to choose “Ticketdirect” which means you will get the ticket on your computer and then can print it. It’s the cheapest and easiest option. You just need to remember to print the ticket before the game! You can buy more than one ticket at the same time. If you are for example a group of four people, it’s better if you can buy all four tickets at once. Then there will be only this one euro delivery cost for all the four tickets in case you choose to use the Ticketdirect option (4 x 10€ + 1€). Of course you can also choose to pick the tickets up at Lippupiste outlet or delivery to your address, but the tickets will then cost more. You don’t need a gift wrap for your tickets or a ticket cover. You can get one if you want, but it’s not necessary and will cost extra. 

Unfortunately it’s only possible to pay with a bank transfer from a Finnish bank account or by card (Visa, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Eurocard). So if you don’t have a Finnish bank account or any of the cards mentioned, try to ask your friends or maybe your family members if they could use their card or bank account for the payment. It’s not possible to pay with cash and you will get the discount only if you buy the ticket using this link. 

You probably have to create an account for the lippu.fi website to get your ticket. The company is trustworthy and you can use the same account in the future if you want to buy tickets for other events as well. 

If you want to read more about the team before the game, there is information in English at http://www.jokerit.com/en 

Hope to see as many of you as possible at the game!
