Ice hockey madness: big screens at náměstí Svobody sq.

After more than four decades, ice hockey club Kometa Brno has a chance to win Czech national cup again. The tickets for the final series are already sold out but you can still watch the games in the middle of a 5000+ crowd – thanks to the big screens located at the town’s central square.

You can see some pictures from the first final game here and here. Note that the Brno “cock clock” got a protective cover. (Big thanks to Tomáš Papež for the big picture above!)

In the last three years, Kometa club gained a huge fan base in Brno. This explain why there are so many loud, celebrating people roaming the streets in these days or why there are hockey dresses decorating shop windows.
