Vítkovice Players Will Play Their Fans

6 November 2012

November 5, 2012, Nošovice – All fans of the Ostrava team will be able to measure their skills against the HC VÍTKOVICE STEEL. They will compete in shot accuracy, and if they succeed, the fans may win hockey themed prizes from the Radegast collection. Radegast brewery is the club partner and the event organiser. The photo-signing event will be a part of the hockey evening that will take place on Tuesday, November 6, at 5:00pm in “Fora Nová Karolina.” Fans can look forward to meeting Rudolf Huna, Adam Sedlák and Petra Koloucha.

Martin Troup, manager of the Radegast brand, explained the rules of the contest: “A fan will pick a player to compete with. Then they will both shoot at the goalie. The one with the highest number of successful attempts will be a winner. If the winner is a fan, he can pick a prize form our hockey collection.”

Even the fans that aren’t successful against the professionals won’t leave empty handed. Everyone will take home a card with the signatures of all the players, or a picture with the players. They will also have an opportunity to talk to the players and ask them questions. 

The event will take place in the entertainment centre Forum Nová Karolina in Ostrava starting at 5:00 pm. The main star of the evening will be centre Rudolf Huna, Slovak national team player, who also played for Lev Poprad in KHL.
