IIHF and Nordic Vikings connecting Spanish and Swedish hockey, with Djurgården and SHL through a Virtual TV Project

IIHF and Nordic Vikings has together targeted the Ice Hockey Development in Spain as extremely Valuable and with Great Potential, not just for Spain it also involves other Spanish Talking Countries, increasing interest for Hockey…

Per-Erik Holmström Nordic Vikings says ” If we not just look at the Ice Hockey development and also look at the total Interest for “Hockey” on the Spanish and Latin American kontinent it is easy to see it grow. Ice Hockey and Roller Hockey – has been there for quite a long time with Spanish Ice Hockey almost 100 years now. Since FIRS – Federation of International Roller Sports – also Included Inline Hockey – the Inline Hockey have helped to Increase the total Interest for Hockey and Ice Hockey. In these countries the Ice Hockey development often comes down to the cost to produce Ice, that could kill a lot of the initiatives. However even if the cost to produce Rink Projects still is high in the investment phase – the good thing is that the running cost could be cut from 200.000 to 40.000 Euro, with the new techniques like Sun Cells and also better and more effective solutions to store the Day Energi Production to be used around the Clock – so the dream to skate on real ice for people in warmer regions seems to be solved in not that long time frame. However it will still take some time, and years, but as we did in China someone have to start – and therefore we initiated this project that links all the strength together”

“The First Key is to help The Spanish League coming up to stable platform Virtual Platform – where we suggested “Saturday Hockey Nights” on TV and Internet, a job that Xavier Cerda the General Secretary of Spanish Federation – already have started to do a great job with when we could link in the content from Djurgårdens SHL Games in the Hockey Nights – Then we had the possibility to use both, the existing Spanish Clubs and their League structure, with brands like FC Barcelona, and combine it with the Spanish Language to get a key position for the Spanish Talking Hockey Interested People in the whole world”……

“The Second Key was to Increase the number of Teams from 5 to 8 to do a League more interesting and competitive – And now the League has just announced that it will be 8 Teams next season – when Millenio Panthers and Huarte from Pamplona will be added to the League together with a third Team – Nordic Vikings placed in Madrid ” …. But more of that in the Next Release…
