First time on OHF...
You have come to the OHF site (Original Hockey Fans). We want you to take part in its creation.
If you live in a hockey-playing country, write about your local hockey
scene! If you live in a non-hockey playing country, write how you feel
about hockey and how we could spread the game.
Tell us about anything concerned with hockey or about the life
of hockey fans . Write about your travels across half the world to watch
your team's matches!
Do you watch hockey on TV and are you satisfied with the quality of
the match broadcasting you get?
Tell us if you prefer another sport to hockey (impossible!!!) and why?
Are you a hockey-player yourself? We want to know!
Has your fan club meet a fans club from abroad and did you get
pissed together. Write about it!
Are you on a downer in summer like us, when there is no hockey?
Are you a webmaster of a cool amateur hockey website?
If you want to write a short message, use our "comments feature" (Chat)
Send us longer articles with pictures, statistics and links to
! We'll put it on!
Contact us and give us your opinions and views !
This website's webmasters are from Czech - country of world and Olympic
We say that the Canadians invented hockey but the Czechs perfected
it !! :-)
Our focus is to bring you news of the Czech Hockey scene, but we want
information concerning the worldwide hocky situation and for this we want
you to participate.
Its better to use the English language, but we can also translate
German and put it on. Unfortunately we can't promise translation from other
languages at the moment. Maybe you can help us with this ?
Originally this noncomercial, independent, slightly non-leagal / underground
site was founded as a funpage just in the czech language - see the blue
article below. In 1999 we added the actual list of Czech
hockey transfers and in summer 2000 we have started world.ohf.cz
The way OHF was founded
(by Roj, OHF#1, 1998)
In the beginning there was chaos.........
Nobody knew anybody, everyone watched hockey and we all went to support
our favorite clubs. Apart from the interest in the game of our stars, we
were all enthralled by the magic formula written on the ice - www.hokej.cz!
Many normal fans didn't understand it at all, but there were a few of us
lucky enough to be connected to the internet. So we tried it, and it worked!
Apart from the hockey articles there was a tempting button called "Fans
reactions" especially for us. So we started to give our impressions through
our keyboards and gradually the arguments about who's' team was the best
stopped and we moved to more constructive comments and discussions.
Then along came Nagano and the amazing event in the Old town square
when WE WON !!, possibly the best experience for any Czech hockey fan.
It was not surprising that the people communicating through the web site
wanted to meet other fans and where was the best place? In the pub of course.
There was only few of us at first, but no start is easy.
After the first few meetings we organized the trip to the World Championship
in Basel (1998). It was there that we decided to set up some completely
non official pages, which would be open for everyone. Then the real meetings
were visited by more and more fans and if it does not sound like a soap
opera from our "favourshit" channel TV Nova, I would say we became friends
You can catch us on x-chat in the
"OHF" room, or you can contact us at our
own chat Some of us have also founded two hockeyball teams, which play
the Second Prague Hockeyball League.
