Bratislava offers Ondrej Nepela stadium for ice-hockey championships

The capital has approached the Education Ministry and the Slovak Ice-hockey Association about switching the venue of the World Ice-hockey Championships, due to take place in Slovakia in 2011, from a newly-constructed stadium to the local Ondrej Nepela Winter Stadium, Mayor Andrej Ďurkovský announced on June 9.

The city had planned to lease land off Kalinčiakova Street to the association for the construction of a new stadium.

"We'd like to reconstruct the (Ondrej Nepela Winter) stadium with the state as co-financier. The cost would be dramatically lower than for the building of a new hall," said Ďurkovský, who added that he intended to submit the proposal. TASR
