Dear friends of hockey,
ŠD Strele is between 03.07 and 05.07.2009 organizing for a second time a major international tournament in inline hockey in Slovenia’s capital – Ljubljana. The tournament will be taking place in an ice Tivoli hall in the centre of Ljubljana. A renovated hall with its 5000 seats represents a home to HK Olimpija, national champions in ice hockey for several times, and the basketball players of Union Olimpija – members of Euroleague. By now, the hall had hosted many ice hockey world championships as well as championships in basketball, weight lifting, gymnastics, etc.
Due to its superb location, only some 300 metres from the very city centre and in close proximity to the majority of hotel facilities, we have selected the hall as the venue of our tournament. Since the first tournament in 2007 was a big success for all, especialy for the participating teams, we are determined to make this years event an even better experience for all.
The organizer of the tournament is Citypark Strele team, a member of the 1. Slovene elite league, organized under the auspices of the Inline HZS (Slovene inline hockey federation).
