“Thousands of tourists come to St. Petersburg not only to visit the sights, but also to go to hockey” – Guberniev

Hockey columnist for Dmitry Guberniev congratulated the hockey player SKA with a new arena, noting that in St. Petersburg it has become a tradition for visitors to attend the matches of the local club.

On Sunday, SKA equalized the series score with Torpedo (1-1), defeating Nizhny Novgorod with a score of 3:2 in the second overtime of the second match. According to protocol, the attendance for this match was 23,996 supporters. Thus, a new KHL record was set for matches in hockey palaces. The previous record was set on March 1 during the first match of the SKA – Torpedo series (2:5), with 23,905 spectators attending the match. The absolute record for KHL matches was set during the SKA – CSKA match in 2018, when 67,770 fans gathered at the Gazprom Arena football stadium, where a hockey rink was installed.

— How do you like the attendance at the SKA Arena? The game against Torpedo attracted 23,996 spectators, which is a new KHL record.

— I congratulate the team once again on the new arena. The city loves hockey and SKA. And the team itself treats citizens and visitors with respect. Because I know that thousands of tourists come to St. Petersburg not only to see the sights, but also to go to hockey. It’s great to have a palace like this, the room for maneuver is endless! I sincerely wish that the SKA club does not stop and continues to please everyone. The next moment for a powerful promotional campaign is the invitation of the legendary Guber Band. And then we will have a full house not only at the hockey stadium, but also at the football stadium.

— Where we will install a screen to watch hockey.

– Good idea! — Guberniev told .
