2020 IIHF World Championship is 2nd most profitable of all time

Insurance pay out of the cancelled 2020 hockey tournament nets organizers 13.4 million francs. Making it the 2nd most financially profitable event in the tournament history.

That's hilarious Unfortunately, I can't watch NLA games over here, but at least the NHL season started again

The people behind that insurance contract are the best hockey players. Sometimes the people chasing the ball......errrr, the puck, are overrated

Re: 2020 IIHF World Championship is 2nd most profitable of all time

I'm still getting over coming back to CH and holding tickets for several games last May (incl SUI) and then having the championships being cancelled. Sure I got my money back but it was hard getting those tickets and who knows when they will be hosted here again? infact who knows when we can watch even the swiss games live too...

300k for the insurance contract apparently - not a shabby investment
