Each Victory in Play-offs Equals 100 Radegast Beers (Translation)

27 March 2012

Havířov, March 26, 2012 - Havířov hockey fans are on their feet. Azet is entering the play-offs to move up to the Premiere League. During tough fights, the hockey players will be encouraged not only by troops of their fine fans, but also by the vision of a promised beer reward. The hockey players will get 100 Radegast beers for each play-off victory. And that is regardless of grabbing the victory during regular time, overtime or shootouts. Havířov players will play eight matches. They can win up to 800 beers and celebrate their advance in style together with their fans.

As promised by Martin Potočný, the team's general manager and player, the team will try to get as many beers as possible. "We have eight hard matches ahead of us, but we will put up a real fight to move up. The beer is a pleasant bonus, which we will gladly share with our fans after the play-offs are over." He added that Radegast has already rewarded the team this season. "We have received a cup filled with beer for our victory in the Second League. It was our only trophy, since there is no official trophy for the Second League champions."

Havířov players will face four rivals during their fight to advance to the Premiere League: Klášterec nad Ohří, Most, Beroun and Hodonín. Two teams are going to move up.
