Swiss League

The Swiss League team had its general assembly this week and presented the results of the last season to their shareholders.

As the Thurgauer Zeitung reports, Thomas Müller, president of HC Thurgau, had to announce a loss of CHF 99,500 for the 2021-22 season. As there were fewer spectators due to the corona measures in place, they sold fewer tickets and their catering was also not as successful as in seasons prior.

The budget for next season is CHF 4.009 million, CHF 100,000 less than in the 2021-22 season. As for the board of directors, Urs Rindlisbacher, head of finances, has left the board. His replacement has yet to be found. HCT also wants to increase the number of directors to seven.

Apart from the financial aspects, Thomas Müller also shared his thoughts on the future of the Swiss League. He is against a fusion of the MyHockey League and the Swiss League and prefers another solution to make the league more attractive again: "From our perspective, the National League and the Swiss League should each consist of ten teams."
