Fans from Orlová can expect 40 beers on Saturday

17.12.2010 Radegast

Radegast Supports Moravian Hockey and this year is also celebrating its anniversary. That is why we agreed to go ahead with this untraditional challenge. I hope that this way fans of the beer will have fun and will also celebrate the brewery’s anniversary,“ said the Manager of the Radegast brand, Pavel Kmínek.

The players from Orlová heard the challenge and in one game they won 40 beers for their fans, thanks to their shots. „To shoot 40 shots and more at the opponent’s goalie in a game is very difficult and can’t always be done. We are happy that we won our fans 40 Radegast beers with our efforts and at the same time, I believe that they will push us forward in our upcoming games,“ said the forward from the Orlová team, Marek Ivan.

The beers will be prepared for the first 40 fans by the „C“ entrance to the arena in Orlová on Saturday an hour before the game at 4 pm.
