EHL knock-out 16 draw
17 Dec 2007 07:58
The drawing of lots of the last 16 and 8, knock-out phase, of Euro Hockey League will be taking place by way of a new virtual and interactive format on Wednesday 19 December at 18:00 (CET). The EHL website will be the online platform for this new format where teams, fans and press will be invited to actively take part.
The draw works as follows; each of the 16 teams participating will be represented at the online draw through a webcam connection. The draw itself will be coordinated from a studio in Hilversum, under observation of the president of the European Hockey Federation, Leandro Negre.
The program on 19 December will consist of an interactive part and a directed studio part. It will be interactive because viewers watching the draw on the website can choose which webcam they wish to view. For example, if someone is a fan of Uhlenhorster HC, they can choose to see the club’s reaction at all times during the draw.
The host in the studio will be asking reactions from all clubs, which can be viewed in the main directed screen. To increase the interaction even more, viewers can ask questions in a special chat-box which has been designed for this purpose. The most interesting questions will be integrated in the program by the host asking those questions to clubs behind the webcams.
