The play-offs were extremely interesting in 2021/2022 season. The fact that spectators were able to come back to the stand without any restriction was really helpful. Thanks to that the atmosphere was in each play-off match excellent. We have finally seen a play-off clash between old rivals Slovan and Košice. This semifinal series was extremely balanced (as almost ever series in this year 's play-off) and had to be decided in the 7th match. Slovan managed to win and had continued to the quarterfinals. The play-off has started on March 16, 2022, with play-off qualification matches between Spišská Nová Ves and Prešov and Banská Bystrica against Trenčín. Prešov has won the series and was happy to continue to quarterfinals in their first season as Tipos Extraliga member. In the other series the team from below the Urpín has won. Prešov has met Bratislava in quarterfinals, but Bratislava was happier at the end of the series. Banská Bystrica has met Zvolen and it was the end for Banská. In the other two quarterfinal series Nitra has won (against Poprad, 4:3) and also Košice has won (against Michalovce, 4:2). The reigning champion from Zvolen came across Nitra and Nitra has won the series. The second semifinal pair was already mentioned Slovan and Košice. The finals between Slovan and Nitra were accompanied by sold-out stands and great atmosphere. Slovan has won the series 4:2. Slovan has won the title in its 100th season.

Play-offs are great not only for players or visitors but also for us. Every game that has been broadcasted was accompanied with our graphics. Including the three matches between Žilina and Liptovský Mikuláš, we have attended 44 live broadcasts between March 16 and May 1, 2022. In the regular season we have participated in 109 live broadcasts. Altogether, we have been involved in the production of 153 live broadcasts. The season has lasted 219 days. To attend 153 live broadcasts from Tipos extraliga in just 219 days is something we can really be proud of. Of course, there were other productions in that time, as well. We can rate this hockey season very positively. We are already looking forward to starting of the new season and we hope that we will be able to surpass this years’ number of broadcasts.
