Blue flooring to be used in Hartwall Arena
Due to the fact that there has been problems with the green TV footage at the Helsinki Ice Hall the IFF has decided to play with blue flooring at the Hartwall Arena.
– Our official floor colour together with the lighting at the Helsinki Ice Hall was not a perfect combination. We have tried to improve this during the week with our official production company Polar HD and the stream colour has improved. Still, in order to avoid any possible problems when we move to the Hartwall Arena, we have decided to play with blue flooring instead, IFF Secretary General John Liljelund comments.
