HC La Chaux-de-Fonds has once more submitted their application for the right to a possible promotion to the National League. As Arcinfo writes, it looks about the same as last year, with a proposed budget of CHF 10 million. With the tightened requirements for promotion, their case might be a bit harder this time.
EHC Olten has also submitted their application. With their currently ongoing increase in share capital, they aim to fulfill the economic criteria for a promotion, as the Oltner Tagblatt writes. As for the other points - infrastructure and security -, the club has already done its part or would be willing to do so.
