Major changes for next season - imagine this in a football context!

Last season we had these leagues:
Elite
EPL
NIHL 1 (N/S)
NIHL 2 (N/S)

Next season we will have:
Elite
NIHL 1 (N/S)
NIHL 2 (N/S?)

The Elite comprises the same ten teams as last season, plus Guildford Flames and MK Lightning from the EPL.

The remaining seven teams in the EPL tried to form a second tier but didn't manage to, therefore they have combined with last season's NIHL1.
Not all leagues have met yet to decide on their constitution, but the NIHL1 South was revealed at the weekend as:

Conference A
Oxford City Stars
Bracknell Bees *
Basingstoke Bison *
Milton Keynes Thunder
Solent Devils
Cardiff Fire

Conference B
Peterborough Phantoms *
Swindon Wildcats *
Invicta Dynamos
Streatham RedHawks
London Raiders
Chelmsford Chieftains

* means EPL last season; the rest were NIHL1 last season.
Import limit appears to be set at two.

This means my local team Solent, who pay to play in a small 400-capacity rink, will play teams like Basingstoke and Swindon next season!

NIHL1 North and the rest have yet to be confirmed. Some teams e.g. Telford Tigers already have an NIHL team (although they may be a different organisation) so sorting that out might be tricky.



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.
