from the Prague Post,
While Šafařík refused to elaborate on the budget for bringing the NHL to Prague, Tejkal revealed the event would be as expensive as hosting the Final Four men’s basketball tournament, which brought Europe’s best basketball clubs to Prague’s Sazka Arena in April 2006 and cost 50 million Kč ($2.6 million)....
Šafařík said that in the end money will be the key factor in deciding whether or not the NHL comes to Prague.
“We’re now awaiting the final word from the NHL about their financial conditions,” he said. “It’s obvious that the event must fit into a certain budget. Still, we’re quite optimistic that we’ll be able to bring the NHL to Prague.”
