Standing sections in the NHL

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

Why isn't there any standing sections in the NHL, like the most teams got in the SEL.

What do you think about standing sections? Do you think its good/bad?

Do you think that only "hooligans" is in the standing sections, and do you even think that is bad?

Some examples from the SEL:

Supportergroup: Northpower

Town Skellefteå - 35 000 people in the city.

Team: Skellefteå AIK

Arena: Skelleteå Kraft Arena - 6001 seats/standing

go to 0:49 on this clip

Supportergroup: Järnkaminerna

Town: Stockholm - 1 000 000

Team: Djurgården IF

Arena: Ericcson Globe about 13 000 seats. Second clip: Johannes hov about 8000 seats

I think that the sections are very important to the teams, and its a great feeling when your in a "cheer section".

What do you think? Do you want it in the NHL?

??? - I've always had a seat to games I've gone to, but I think most rinks in the NHL sell standing room only tickets.

It might be cool, but it's just not what the American hockey culture evolved into in my opinion.

I think the supporter culture in icehockey in Europ comes from the European Football/Soccer (or what ever you might call it) culture, and that's maby why it hasn't deploved in North America.

Although I prefer the more fanatic european culture to the more business orientated NHL one, after watching the following I know who the best supporters are and its not even close.

TBH I just go to a hockey game to watch hockey. You cheer when necessary and it is cool to see places like Winnipeg that are absolutely apes***, but just enjoy the game and your good.
