Of all team sports, ice hockey is probably the one most closely associated with Sweden. With multiple World Cup and Olympic-medals in their cabinet, both Sweden’s women's –and men’s national team is a force to be reckoned with out on the ice. And SHL (Swedish Hockey League, the top-tier league in hockey) is consistently ranked as one of the greatest in the world. The most prominent clubs in Stockholm are Djurgården and AIK. For more info on the teams and current season visit SHL.se or SDHL.se.
The hockey season starts in September and lasts to march. Tickets can be bought either at the arena on game day, through the different clubs’ web pages or (depending on the team and arena) through Ticketmaster, Stockholm Live and Friends Arena. International games and tournaments are almost always played at the Ericsson Globe.
