Re: [Feversham Lens] Where are you going - where did you go? ICE HOCKEY or Reply Privately

We're only about 20th in the world so ice hockey is pretty low key here.
It's an expensive game (15-20 in a squad, equipment, etc.)
Only a few companies run the ice rinks, it's hard to get sponsorship.
I think Morris, and certainly the owner at Telford, Scholes, are blamed for trying to raise the stakes in the EPL, which has caused a lot of the financial problems for a few teams, because they don't get the crowds to match.

Pay - it's very variable. A few guesses:

ENL1S - Solent Devils players pay to play. Only one or two imports per team. Many local players. Imports at bigger teams in this league may get accommodation and beer money (occasionally a bit more).

EPL - imports may get 2-3K per month at a guess. About 3-5 imports per team. Some local players. I doubt whether the best GB players in this league get more than that. A lot will get half that. Guildford Flames are one of the richest, their total wage bill is rumoured to be about 8K per week.

Elite - not much idea but most of them are imports so will command a higher salary. I've heard 3-6K per month.



If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.
