Bratislava easily provided for the Ball Hockey Word Championship 2011

New effects for hockeyball on COLOSSEO Jumbotron
Colosseo created a wonderful atmosphere during the whole championship even though the attendance was not very good. Standard modules (scoreboard, video system, ticket system, video referee) proved their functionality and the security systems enabled a smooth running of the matches. The newly used minitimers rose to their challenge perfectly. The matches were held without any problems both in the training halls equipped with Colosseo systems and in the main hall.
The new world champions are the ball hockey players from the Czech Republic whocollected their third gold medal by beating Canada. The Canadians, who already have five medals, came out second this time. As for the women´s championship, the Slovak ball hockey players were the most successful ones. They earned the gold medal by beating Canadians in the finals and after two lost finals (World Championshi in Ratingen in 2007 and in Plze? in 2009) eventually fulfilled their gold dream.
