It was in the beginning of december as Järnkaminerna, together with the AIK's supporter groups chose to boycott all the sales in the kiosks and bars on the royal Court and the Globe. This as a protest against the high prices on food and drink for all visitors.
– AIK started the boycott, and we latched onto when we had the match. It is based in that prices have run riot away quite a lot in recent years. Many deals have disappeared and have been replaced by annual rates, which has made it become more expensive, especially for families that go on in hockey. There we wanted to try to change it, " says Järnkaminernas president Viktor Adolfsson.
then in the past.
" Many have responded, especially those who go more rarely at the matches, those who may have children who want different things to eat. I know that some of materbjudandena has disappeared so it became very expensive to eat for all of us that are quite often. So the discussion has been.
Adolfsson says that the response from the fans has only been positive over the boycott.
– Purely responsmässigt there has been nothing negative at all, many think that it is good. We may not print any numbers on how sales have gone, but at the shops it feels as if it has been less queues. I know that AIK just right to the kiosks, we have also had the bars. We from Järnkaminerna thought it was strange not to boycott the bar also then the money goes to the same place.
and the island of Djurgården is described as good and Victor Adolfsson believes that it has been an advantage to boycott together.
" We know that we are much stronger if we do the same thing together and it was very important that we agreed on when we would call off and how we would go out with it. It is very important, " he says.
" We have had a lot of contact with our clubs and Stockholm Live from the beginning. One of our basic requirement was that we would meet at the end of which we, the clubs, the Stockholm live and Stureplansgruppen did. Where we discussed issues such as rates, service and selection. We came in with proposals to the prices, where we got some things that we think is enough to call off this.
to be cheaper. Now is basically everything in the level with the prices at the Friends Arena and the Tele2 Arena, writes Järnkaminerna on their website.
" It's not exactly cheap there either, but it can be difficult to get down much more. Stockholm Live want to have basically the same price at all their venues, regardless of who handles the sales. The most important thing for us was to firstly get down a number of products that had an excessive price, partly barnmenyerna but also matmenyerna that makes you will be able to eat and buy a soda for one hundred dollars.
there are opportunities to reduce some of the other prices even further and discuss.
" It's not that we think that everything is fine and dandy but we think we can call off, and then work together and try to find more deals.
After the season, and also before next season, will the parties involved be seen for further discussion.
" It's great that you can sue. They also get a little perspective on what people are thinking out there in the stadiums and what we supporters think. It is great for both parties that can make a difference, " says Mr Adolfsson.
the DN has tried to reach Stureplansgruppen Arena Catering but without success.
