MOSCOW, January 28 /TASS/. The organizers of 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship that will take place in Moscow and St. Petersburg in May hope to earn approximately 20 million roubles ($256,960) on the tickets, Russian Sport Minister Vitaly Mutko said.
The Russian Ice Hockey Federation said earlier on Wednesday that the price of tickets for the final match would range from 13,500 to 22,500 rubles ($174.04 to $283.6).
"Honestly, I have never heard that anybody is discontent with the prices. On the contrary, the tickets are being sold very quickly. All the prices have been agreed with the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). If there are any problems, we can return to the price issue again. Earning money is not our task. We just want to recoup our operational expenses in order to break even," Mutko explained.
