Fans will be on Mora’s bench

26.1.2011 Radegast

„One fan will participate in the same activities as players, and for one day he will be a member of the team. During the afternoon warm–up, we won’t be too hard on him so that he has enough energy to help us during the game,“ said coach of HC Olomouc Jan Tomajko with a smile.

This Saturday, for the first time a  fan will sit on the bench during the game against Havlíčkův Brod. One other winner of this unconventional competition will also participate in the action during a match with Ústím nad Labem.

Each fan will start by participating in the afternoon warm-up. He won’t be only watching; if he chooses to, he can also practice with the players and try out some hockey tricks. After that, he will go out to lunch with the team. The highlight of the day will be spending the entire game on the bench of the team.

„To be able to have a  fan spend the entire afternoon with the team on the day of a game isn’t easy, and it is really unusual. Radegast wants to bring hockey fans special experiences, and this competition is one such example. I hope that this unique opportunity will interest fans of the Olomouc hockey team,“ explained manager of the Radegast brand, Pavel Kmínek.

All you need to do to participate in the competition is to purchase 10 Radegast beer products and to register at
