Welcome to the No. 1 city in Sweden for events!
In April 2007 Swedish Oldtimers Hockey Association, Swedish Ice Hockey Federation together with Goteborg city will arrange IIHF Oldtimers World Cup. Sweden has many years of hockey tradition - from a lot of broad health care exercise, junior hockey to World and Olympic championships. Factors that strongly speaks for Sweden as organizer of this Oldtimers Hockey World Cup. Know-how, personal commitments and long experience from all kinds of events are conditions that talks for a great hockey event in Goteborg. Goteborg is a city with a great hospitality, vicinity to seas and nature and a never ending party and restaurant life. A broad spectre of cultural life. We know that your expectations are high and we will realize them.
”It's a great pleasure for me that Goteborg once more has been trusted to arrange an event of world wide range. We promise that no one will be disappointed.
Welcome to our city!”
Jorgen Linder, Lord Mayor
