Join the hockey festival of all times at Ullevaal Stadion

August 11, 2018

The NHL stars Henrik Lundqvist and Mats Zuccarello invite you to the ultimate hockey face–off at Ullevaal Stadium Saturday August 11, 2018.

After four years of hosting the "Zuccarello All–Star Game" in Stavanger, the event is now moving to Oslo’s Ullevaal Stadium. For the first time, Oslo's largest stadium will be transformed in to an outdoor hockey rink in the middle of summer. With enough room to accommodate 23,000 spectators, Summer Classic will be Norway's largest sporting charity event.
This is truly a unique hockey experience that shouldn’t be missed. The New York Rangers superstars, Henke and Zucca will handpick their all–star teams from the world’s best NHL players for this ultimate ice hockey showdown. This will be the opportunity for Zucca to finally fulfill his childhood dream of scoring a goal in front of a full house at Ullevaal stadium (only he’ll be wearing ice skates instead of soccer shoes). Before the big game with the NHL stars, there will be a pre-game showdown between Norwegian and Swedish sports and entertainment celebrities facing off in a showdown to settle once and for all which country truly rules the ice. Between the games there will be an amazing show with Madcon that you won’t want to miss!
