As CEO Markus Bütler said at the SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers' press conference on Monday, they were already able to sell 20 percent more season tickets than last season. Also, they were able to attract additional sponsors after the past season.
Thanks to these positive signals, the Lakers have increased their budget to CHF 12 million for the upcoming season, the Südostschweiz writes. This is an increase by CHF 500,000.
The goal on the ice is again to be ranked among the top ten of the National League. According to team manager Janick Steinmann, this is not an understatement after their fourth place last season: "We know where we're coming from, who we are, and what our budget is," he said.
