, All Star is transforming from a local exhibition into a regional event with the international participation of four countries’ hockey teams. This exhibition promises an interesting hockey derby between the Slovak, Czech, Austrian and German league. Bratislava
will welcome the best of the best who will show their ice hockey mastery in front of the spectators at the Ondrej Nepela Arena. The fans of quality hockey will really enjoy this extraordinary exhibition. Some accompanying events, a rich cultural program, concerts, contests and lots of attractions will be prepared for them.
The idea to organise a regional All Star event hosting leagues from neighbouring countries was born at the beginning of this year. Playing a 3 on 3 tournament, round-robin, the rules are quite simple. The matches will last 2 x 15 minutes and each team will have 12 skaters and 2 goalies. After the last match the table will show the placings. Each league club will be represented by at least one player and simultaneously the maximal number of foreigners in each league draft is set to be seven.
