The volunteers, mostly students and OAPs, will also provide assistance at airports as well as stadiums in Bratislava and Košice. They will inform hockey fans about, for example, items that can or cannot be brought into hockey arenas. "Many high-quality people have applied, and they are all well-versed in terms of foreign languages," said the volunteers’ manager Zuzana Janošová. The average age of the volunteers, who aside from Slovakia come from countries such as Canada, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, is 25. Women account for one third of the volunteers.
