The online store for #SupportKontiolahti products has opened and ticket returns have started

Biathlon World Cup ticket returns have started. Those who bought tickets can support the event organizer who suffered a large financial loss and not be charged back the price of unused tickets. Purchased tickets can also be transferred to the World Cup in November. You can also show your support by buying products from the newly opened #SupporKontiolahti online store.

In order to contain the corona virus, the Biathlon World Cup was organized without an audience and with a competition organization reduced to a minimum. As a result of the public ban, the organizer was left without ticket sales revenue, the amount of which was previously estimated at 400,000 euros.

This week, the #SupportKontiolahti campaign, born from the initiative of partners and citizens, offers individuals and communities the opportunity to support the event organizer, who experienced a large financial loss.
