Swiss Ice Hockey

The former goaltender will take on his new tasks in August - at the latest.

Lars Weibel joins the SIHF

The Sonntagsblick reported two weeks ago that the SIHF's search for Raeto Raffainer's successor was nearing its end. They reported that there were only three candidates left: head of referees Andreas Fischer, HC Lugano's Jean-Jaques Aeschlimann, and Lars Weibel, who is currently the head of EV Zug's Hockey Academy.

Weibel won out in the end. His experience as the head of the Hockey Academy and with that, his willingness to support and develop young talents factored into the SIHF's decision to appoint him as the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation's new Director of National Teams. Also, he has already acquired an international network while working for EV Zug,

Lars Weibel retired from his playing career in 2010. The former goaltender has been part of EV Zug's organization since 2016.
