Back to hockey-arenas in Switzerland
The "Allmendstadion" in Bern is currently the biggest hockey arena in Switzerland and even one of the largest ones in entire Europe. The stadium offers room for 16.771 visitors, this number includes 4.460 seats and 391 corporate suits.
Unless the team is playing against Langau (Berner derby) or in the playoffs, it shouldn't be a problem to get tickets for the games.
After playing a destructive and unsuccesful style during the last years the average attenadance was around 13.000 (still the highest in Europe), but it is consistently decreasing.
During the last season (1999-2000) an average of 11'200 fans visited the games of SC Bern. Because of this still great fan-community oftentimes more than 2.000 fans travel with their team to away games in order to support it. The biggest rivals are SC Langnau, the HC Lugano and the team Fribourg Goteron.
