HC Mora will challenge Premiere League finalists. Beer for fans as a reward for goals scored. (Translation)

28 July 2011

Olomouc, 7. 26. 2011 - Olomouc hockey players are facing the beginning of a preparation period before the start of the Premier League. Team Mora will challenge the champion and runner-up, teams Třinec and Vítkovice, at home, and fans have much to look forward to. In both attractive duels, Roosters may actually shoot out Radegast beer for them. The key is the number of the player scoring the goal. Fans will be able to enjoy just that many beers for each goal scored. Forward Jakub Bartoň will invite fans to enjoy these shot-out beers at Radegastovna pub on Wednesday, August 10th. Other team-mates of his will be present with him as well.

Olomouc hockey fans will have a chance to watch the two best Czech teams. On Thursday, July 28, team Mora challenges champion team Třinec, and on Tuesday, August 2, the other finalist, hockey team Vítkovice, is coming to visit the Haná region.

The hockey fest will have the taste of good, bitter beer, since for each goal scored the fans will receive Radegast beer, the number of beers being determined by the number displayed on the scoring player's jersey. "In the dressing room, I have overheard the idea that the forwards should wear jerseys displaying the number 80 and higher. But then the fans wouldn't recognise us, so we have dismissed it," said smiling Jakub Bartoň, who participated in the final's series Třinec versus Vítkovice in person as a member of the Ostrava Vítkovice team. 

The number of shot-out beers will be added up after both matches, and the fans will have a chance to enjoy the beer together with the players. Jakub Bartoň and his team-mates will definitely come to enjoy the beer before the season starts. "It is going to be great chatting with fans about the upcoming season. Thanks to Radegast brewery, we see each other several times during the season, and it is always very, very pleasant," said the Olomouc team's forward as a part of his invitation for HC Mora fans.

Radegast brewery will be partners with the Olomouc club for the 2011/2012 season again, and as usual, it is preparing a number of attractive events. "The fans will have a chance to buy their tickets for the season at the first game with Třinec. The first hundred buyers will receive free Radegast beer. For this season, we are planning meetings with players, our hockey promo team will come to selected games, and there will be other surprises as well," described Marek Málek, manager of Radegast beer brand.
