Ringier Sports AG and the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation have signed a five-year cooperation agreement that will allow the media group to broadcast all games, as well as the highlights of the single games. Moreover, one game per round will be shown live and free of charge on Blick.ch. For the 2023-24 season, the offer will be extended to the other junior, amateur, and women's leagues.
Patrick Bloch, CEO of Swiss Ice Hockey, believes that this is a major milestone for Swiss junior, amateur, and women's ice hockey: "Thanks to this broadcast, the clubs of the MyHockey League and of the Women's League will benefit from enormous reach on one of Switzerland's most popular online channels. Moreover, the entire junior, amateur, and women's leagues will be present on the same web-streaming platform in the future."
Alex Reymondin, vice president of EHC Thun and delegate of the MyHockey League, agrees that this is a significant advantage for the clubs: "The new streaming offer provides us as a club with an interesting tool that we can also use in practice, among other things. It also offers our fans an additional service, especially at away games, and our sponsors and partners an additional media presence."
