Built in 1967, the current home of SC Bern, the PostFinance Arena, is the second-oldest arena in the National League, behind the ice rink of Genève-Servette HC. Renovation work was already carried out between 2008 and 2009, but now the club has to sit at a table and discuss the future of the PostFinance Arena again.
"The question is whether we should renovate or build a new stadium. We will make the fundamental decision in a few months," reveals Lüthi, who sets a timeline for the end of the works in 2030.
In the case of a renovation, many questions are open, for instance, what would happen with the largest standing area in ice hockey. In the case of a new stadium, a decision will also have to be made as to whether it should be built on municipal land or right next door on land belonging to the municipality of Ostermundigen.
