Since then the sport has attracted more fans, sponsors and attention by the media. The government has financially aided the youth organizations, and this has brought expert opportunities for the people that work in the sport, to do an outstanding professional work. However on the level of the clubs this investment did not bring expected results. The thesis presents the cultural disadvantages, and the difficulty of not being the leading sport in the country, by investigating the countries' leading club's situation. Sheds light on the missing pieces, how works a top prospect youth hockey organization. Designs a plan from all the aspects that need to be taken into consideration, and investigates the results of this plan after one year.
