Students from Minsk’s State Linguistic University, the BSU and the Belarusian State University of Physical Culture are to be encouraged to apply to help with the event from March onwards, explains Yevgeny Vorsin, the Chairman of the Belarusian Ice Hockey Federation and the Head of the Directorate for the World Championship. No doubt, it will be a wonderful experience for all those involved. Special uniforms bearing logos will identify volunteers taking part.
In all, 56 hotel complexes will be accommodating guests, in addition to eleven student dormitories and seven Student Village hostels. Serious attention is being paid to security and a memorandum is being prepared to fix hotel tariffs during the World Championship. Jointly with a ticket operator, a ticket programme has been developed, and the event is now to be widely promoted abroad via the official tourist operator, TsentrKurort.
The 2014 IIHF World Championship has already been promoted via the largest tourist exhibition in London, and a similar presentation is planned in Germany, followed by another eight major venues.
