As EV Zug's CEO Patrick Lengwiler says to the Luzerner Zeitung, the budget is going to be increased in the lower six-figure range.

"You haven't got the opportunity to hire a goalkeeper like Genoni or a forward like Hofmann every year," Lengwiler explains. "We wanted to seize this opportunity." As a consequence, more money is needed for their team in the upcoming season, in spite of the departures of Tobias Stephan and Reto Suri.

"Our goal is to challenge Lugano, Bern, and the ZSC Lions in the fight for the championship title," EVZ's CEO says. This is why they push to their financial limits, "as long as it's justifiable." Lengwiler says to the Luzerner Zeitung that he can stand behind every single contract: "Unlike other clubs, we earn the money we spend ourselves."

So is EV Zug currently driving the prices of players through the ceiling? "No more and no less than nine other clubs," Lengwiler defends their investments. "Of course, we have taken a more offensive approach this year than in the past. But we know that other clubs submitted similar offers."
