As Klaus Zaugg (Watson) reveals, the league is currently planning the schedule for the upcoming season. This time, however, there are two scenarios: one with 12 teams and another with 13 teams - in case one team will be promoted from the Swiss League.
The odd thing about it: if there are still 12 teams in the National League next season, there will be 54 regular season games - two more. But if there will be 13 teams, still 52 games. "That's the way it is," Willy Vögtlin confirms the two scenarios to Zaugg.
