The 2017 World Cup will be hosted in Landskrona, Sweden, the last weekend of October; starting with the Dinner & Draw (tm) Friday night, the 27th October. The games start Saturday the 28th October, and we'll crown the World Champion sometime Sunday the 29th October.

Registration: Sign up here: http://www.ko-gathering.com/wc2017/

The tournament will be arranged at Landskrona IdrottsPlats (Landskrona Stadium), where we'll be using rooms overlooking the football-field; somehting that should provide a very good atmosphere.

Hotel will be Hotel Öresund http://www.hoteloresund.se/ - We've negotiated fair prices, and a booking-code will be provided.
Booking-code is 111907
Check out the hotel-thread.

Thanks organisers!
The Milan gang is planning the trip. Probably we will miss the Friday opening ceremony as the flight arrives in CPH @ 20.40 but I'm almost sure we will join the fun for the rest of the week end!

I got some trouble with the hotel website. seems that the English translation isn't working properly so even if click on the english flag the translation is corrupted. I tried with a couple of browser to be sure. is this the first step of brexit side effect?
Please, could you recap prices agreed for rooms?
I reached the room reservation form though but I don't know how and where I have to add the booking code you provided. Please could you provide some more detail for this? thanks in advance
