Ostrava December 15, 2009 - On Thursday at 7 pm, fans of the Vítkovice hockey team are meeting at the Eliáš restaurant, on Chalupníkova Street, not far from the ČEZ hockey arena, because hockey players, Marek Kvapil, Vladimír Svačina and Yorick Treille will be there for a glass of a cold Radegast. Besides discussing hockey, the players will try to serve beer from the tap to the customers; on top of that, the players will participate in a table tennis match against the fans. Every hockey fan in attendance will take home a special card with a picture of the team, signed by the players who are present for the event.

"This opportunity to meet the hockey players is part of the Radegast Supports Moravian Hockey project. I am sure that fans will take advantage of this an untraditional hockey evening with players from a leading extra league team," says manager of the Radegast brand, Pavel Kmínek.

The meeting with the players at the Eliáš restaurant will last for about an hour, and will be divided into three parts. The first part will be interviews with the players and their coach, during which fans can ask any questions they choose.

After this, the star players will go to the beer taps, so that they can attempt to properly pour cold Radegast from the tap, which they will then serve to their fans.  In the last part of the evening, fans and hockey players will play a match of table tennis.
