Press Release by World Cup Ulricehamn - 16-01-2017

Ticket sales have been very good, five days before the race and we have sold 45,000 tickets. Saturday's 10/15 km competitions are expected to bring close to 30 000 visitors to the Ulricehamn ski stadium.  Sunday's relays are expected to attract over 25,000 visitors. 

Parking fee is replaced with bus fee
In order to simplify and speed up the flow at the parking organizers are replacing the parking fee with a bus fee paid on the bus via Swish. "During the bus journey there is time to make the payment via Swish", says Henrik Svensson, Head of Logistics. Opening hours at the parking lots have been expanded and all the car parking areas now  open at 06:30 on Saturday and 07:30 on Sunday. 

In the arena, opening times at the two entrances and the inlet is now 07:00 on Saturday and 08:00 Sunday.

Visitors should plan to arrive early
The majority of visitors to the races will park at the park and ride and be channeled by bus or walk up to Lassalyckan. The buses from the parking lot will go in the shuttle. "The call to all visitors arriving by car or bus is clear," according to Henrik Svensson.  "Arrive early, carpool and follow our signs marked 'P World Cup Alpine skiing'," adds Svensson.
