9 August 2011

Olomouc, August 8, 2011 - Hockey plays from Olomouc have had a successful beginning to the pre-season. Their defeat of Vítkovice and near victory over Třinec brought joy to players and fans alike, because their shots during these games earned them 325 Radegast Premium beers.

Hockey players from Olomouc have behind them a successful beginning of their preparation time. A near win with the winning Třinec and a win with Vítkovice did not bring joy only to the players, but also to the fans. That is, because roosters got for them 325 Radegast Premium beers with their shots from both games. Jakub Bartoň, the team's defenseman, invites all fans for a beer on Wednesday, August 10th, at the Radegastovna in Olomouc. Accompanying him will be Robin Staněk and Matěj Pekr, who earned more beers for the cause than any other players.

The pre-season games are over, and thanks to a stellar performance by Mora, players and fans can celebrate on August 10th at the Radegastovna in Olomouc. "Thanks to the support of our fans, we played great games with other teams from the Extra League. I am very happy that our shots earned them so much beer. I want to invite all Mora fans to come to Radegastovna and share a real, bitter Radegast with us," said Mora's defenseman Jakub Bartoň about Wednesday's event.

Players from Olomouc shot a total of 7 goals in the finals of the Extra League. However, more important than the number of goals was the numbers on the Olomouc players' jerseys. The higher the number on a player's jersey, the more beers he stood to earn for Mora fans. In total, fans and players can look forward to 325 Radegast Premium beers. Thanks to his performance in the Vítkovice game, Matěj Pekr, number 95, provided in the single greatest contribution to the cause, while the young defenseman Robin Staněk, number 86, earned the second highest number of beers.

Everyone who attends the event at the Radegastovna in Olomouc at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, August 10th, will receive a gift certificate for Radegast Premium beer. The gift certificate is valid for that day only. The meeting with the players, lead by Jakub Bartoň, will begin at 5 p.m. In order for fans to receive free beer, at least one piece of their clothing must be in Mora's red and white club colours.

"I believe that a lot of fans will come to Radegastovna in Olomouc to not only analyse the pre-season games but to look forward to the upcoming First League season. We will definitely repeat the meeting with the players during the regular season," said Manager of the Radegast brand, Marek Málek.
