"Lugano, the country’s third largest city".

Lugano is the ninth largest city.

I guess the writer meant, "The 3rd largest of the 3 cities that I know"....

Did anyone watch the video? You can hear the guy who taped it screaming at the TV! Quite funny... Turn your volume down though. He yells much louder than the TV volume is set at.

Or "the biggest city in a Top 3 language region"

I didn't know that their fan base is political, interesting article. I'm not into ice hockey to be honest...
