Since the groups of the 2017 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Cologne and Paris have been determined, the international demand for tickets has increased substantially. The purchase of tickets for the tournament, which will take place from 5th to 21st May 2017 and is jointly organized by Germany and France, is now becoming even more user-friendly for both venues.

For the first time spectators can have a detailed look at the individual seats of an IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship before buying tickets. This is made possible by means of a brand-new digital panoramic view, which shows the exact positions, angles and perspectives of the different seats in Cologne and Paris. See video manual on the right side of this page.

Venue packages for the LANXESS arena in Cologne and the arena in Paris Bercy are available as well as group packages, a package for the final round or for the games of the final weekend in Cologne.
