Fans fight over tickets to hockey championships

Slovakia's success in reaching the quarterfinals of the Hockey World Championships in Finland has led to a run on flights to Helsinki.

"After each of our matches the interest in trips, mainly for the final, has increased. After the weekend the telephone was ringing from the morning with [customers] trying to buy tickets for the last remaining flights," said Lucia Dugovičová from the travel agency Leonardo.

Yesterday Slovakia drew 3:3 with the Czech Republic to finish the second round on top of group E.
