Hockey advertising enriches STV

State television company STV stands to receive between Sk40 million and Sk50 million (€970,000 and €1.21 million) in advertising during its broadcasts of the 2003 world ice-hockey championships in Finland.

"[The second half of the championships] are more interesting from an economic and advertising point of view, and it is too early to give precise figures," said Branislav Zahradník, a member of STV's crisis management team.

If Slovakia manages to reach the final, 30-second advertising slots will cost up to Sk400,000 (€9,700) during the game, according to ABRO Media, which manages STV's advertising.
