National League


A high official of the SIHF confirmed to the Luzerner Zeitung's Klaus Zaugg that the league cannot withdraw HC Ambrì-Piotta's license, which they threatened to revoke if no new arena is built.

"We don't stand a chance of throwing Ambrì out of the league by denying them the license," Zaugg cites his source. "As long as the Valascia meets the official requirements, such as security and fire police, it is possible to play National League hockey there - except the assembly of the clubs decides otherwise."

According to Zaugg, there is little chance of a majority of the clubs voting against Ambrì and such a decision would not hold up in court. The final decision about the fate of the old Valascia and, therefore, of HC Ambrì-Piotta lies with the authorities of the canton Ticino and the Swiss authorities.

Today, the Leventinesi have received the license for the upcoming 2017-18 season, La Regione reports. However, as in the years before, they are obliged to meet certain requirements to keep the license.
