VLADIVOSTOK, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 5,000 fans will watch a game of the Olympic hockey match between Russia and Slovenia on a wide screen of 100 square meters, which is installed at the Fetisov Arena in Russia’s most eastern Vladivostok, local sports authorities told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The initiative to organise live broadcasts of hockey games involving the Russian national team came from the local Admiral hockey club (Continental League) and from the local authorities. As yet they plan to broadcast two games. Next broadcast is scheduled for February 15.
The Fetisov Arena was opened in September 2013. Now it is Admiral’s home arena. The complex has two ice arenas, each of which may host a hockey game, and if necessary the two arenas may be united into one big field. Besides, the complex may be used as a huge hall for concerts. The building is unique not only for Vladivostok, but for the entire region.
Fetisov is Russia's twice Olympic champion in hockey.
