- We would like to extend a huge thank you to all supporters of our national team! Every year, the RIHF undertakes all possible efforts to ensure that the Channel One Cup is a true celebration of ice hockey. This year, it took a lot of hard work to make sure that we could fill the stadium to 70% of its capacity. I am happy that in the 75th year of the sport in our country, ice hockey is at the centre of attention for millions of Russian citizens. Our partners are satisfied with the level of interest and consequently saw the effectiveness of cooperation with the Russian national team. I'm confident that we will continue working together concerning the development and promotion of ice hockey in our country. I would like to thank Channel One for its contribution to the promotion of ice hockey in Russia, broadcasts of the competition games are always held at the highest level. It's vital that the entire country has the possibility to watch our home stage of the Euro Hockey Tour live on television.
