NORDIC HOCKEY ACADEMY + FERLACH CITY = A TRUE HOCKEY TOWN

Nordic Hockey Academy has shown its international quality and high end standards through out the years and also has grown well into the hearts of the local community in our "hockey town"  Ferlach and Carinthia.

However, we (NHA) would have not been able to be where we are today without the fantastic support of our local community, loyal investors, enthusiastic partners and last but not least, our beloved city Mayor Mr.  Ingo Appé.
