Eight out of the league's nine clubs have opted to sell so-called støttebilletter, which actually corresponds to a donation.

Ishockeyfansene have welcomed the initiative, it sounds from the clubs.

Kent was the first out with støttebilletter, and the club has sold more than 2300 tickets à 125 crowns. The goal is to sell 2500.

Although most of the Danish clubs are reporting a positive start to the sales of støttebilletter, it lags a bit in last season's champions from Rungsted.

- If I am to be completely honest, I am a little disappointed that we haven't sold more so far. When I hear what they have sold in Guildford, I am impressed. We usually have an equal number of spectators, but right now have their fans taken the situation more seriously, says director Thomas Friberg.

In Herlev sell tickets to a party, the club will wind up, when coronaviruskrisen is over.

Jutland is the only ligaklub that Thursday afternoon did not have støttebilletter for sale.

Sønderjyskes director, Klaus Rasmussen, says that the Vojens club is working to find a model where the fans get an experience in exchange.

- We would like to reciprocate with something if you are willing. It could be a kind of event, which we will be able to settle on the other side of the difficult situation in the society, he says.
