    More than 2x I believe

    Yeah you're probably right. The wealthy Swedes with their Ikea and H&M and what not.

    It wasn't so expensive when Gothenburg go worlds 2008. Euros the year after that 2009 was way more expensive, about 1,5 times worlds gold ticket. It's way I decided not to go

    I know that the organising committee for Sheffield Euros decided to keep the ticket prices low to (hopefully) fill the arena.
    Here's hoping for a similar strategy if, as anticipated, NISA bids to hold Worlds ...

    Still no update on exact timing. It was due to be this week according to another poster but they just told me "middle of October". Hopefully any day now!

    A friend of mine mailed them today and they told her to be patient, some problems with their site they said, so i didnt bother them at all.

    Well, it should be less than Switzerland anyway... (works out beautifully for me, of course, for once I don't need to think about travel and accomodation! ).

    ETA: I looked up the prices for Stockholm 2015:
    Prices for the All Event tickets will be
    Category A: 4.900 SEK

    Category B: 2.800 SEK
    That's roughly USD 770/440 or €560/320, so not quite as bas as I thought it would be.

    The All Event tickets for Euros 2015 go on sale at the end of November (maybe that should go in a thread of its own, instead of hijacking this one, sorry!)

    I wonder if tickets for Euros 2015 will be available earlier than Euros 2014.

    Speaking of... It's almost November now. Oh well.

    (But yeah, Stockholm 2015 will be a little bit cheaper than Helsinki 2009 was (IIRC that was 600/400€)... still compared to 2012-2014 but that was to be expected. At least I can take a cheap ferry!)

    One is absurdly late, and the other absurdly early?

    I'm definitely buying for 2015. Would love to go this year, but the scheduling is weird. Is mens seriously the only thing happening on the Saturday? The easiest day for people to get there? Jeez. I can't take much time off work, so would love to leave for Budapest on the Friday and come back on the Sunday, but when factoring in flights, all I'd be able to see is mens. Is it worth it? Mens is by far the best event...

    And just an FYI, the 2015 tickets will be on sale on November 26, according to http://iof2.idrottonline.se/SvenskaK...bundet/EM2015/

    Wow, the tickets for 2015 will be on sale soon But I wonder who will buy those bronze level tickets, Globen is huge and you can't see anything from those seats. It's wishful thinking that the events would sell out.

    ITA, the schedule is a mess. I don't get why you would have only one event on Saturday and then yet another one on Sunday before gala if you could have both on Saturday?
    Also, I don't like the day ticket thing (versus single event tickets). I mean, flights considered, I would be able to go to ice dance on Thursday, both events on Friday and men on Saturday and I have to pay the same price for each day, even though one day I see two events and the other two days I see just one? and why is Saturday's price the same as all others if it only has one event? Like I said, one big mess.

    Which is too bad, because flight tickets and accommodation in Budapest are really in reasonable prices.

    The schedule is really odd. I reckon Trankov saying in one of the interwiews that they condiser not competing, because PF is on Sunday morning. Let´s move the competition to Barcelona... I would suggest Helsinki, but it would be very expensive to many of you.

    Well, they do call it a "preliminary time schedule", so maybe they'll come to their senses and change it?

    Maybe they are & that's why the tickets are taking so long to go on sale! (I wish...)

    I'm not going(I wish) but I just wanted to horn in and say I love Budapest! Hope I can get back someday.All of those going for the first time, you will love it. I never had a problem with English, shops, restaurants were all great, they spoke english very well. Had a harder time in Prague.
