Police on Tuesday afternoon seized ten forged tickets for an Ice Hockey World Championship match on the same day between Slovakia and Russia at Bratislava's Orange Arena, Bratislava police spokesman František Peczár said on Wednesday, May 4, the TASR newswire reported.

An unidentified person sold the forged tickets to an Austrian citizen for a total of €1,500. The police are investigating the case. The seller could be punished with up to two years in jail for forgery. The police have called on fans not to buy tickets on the black market or from touts. "If visitors to the Championship decide to buy tickets from sellers in the street they expose themselves to the risk of financial damage that could reach several hundred euros. In addition, they won't be allowed into the stadium with a forged ticket," said Peczár.
