The regional council of Langenthal has made their decision: SC Langenthal's new arena will be built "im Hard". Thus, the Swiss League team will leave the Schoren as soon as their new home is finished.

"The land belongs to the city and it has already been designated to sports and leisure. Additionally, there are no residential neighborhoods close by and, given the proximity of the Bern-Zürch-road, the stadium can be well developed and used for commercial purposes," the city's president Reto Müller tells desktopstories.ch about the reasons the regional council decided on the "Hard" for SCL's new arena.

The land lease contract for the Schoren has now been extended for another ten years until 2031. After that, no further extension will be granted. But, as they have now found a new site to build on, this should not become a problem. The next step in the process will be to develop a concrete project and find investors. How the new arena will be funded has yet to be determined. One thing is clear, at least to Müller: "I don't see us (the city of Langenthal) carrying the entire financial responsibility by ourselves."
