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

Yes, I expect there will be some large scores next season.

However, with two imports only, it looks as if the whole league is going to be skewed towards the NIHL model rather than the EPL model.

Basingstoke, for example, will have 12 fewer home games then in the EPL, probably less fans, and they will have to drop their entrance prices, so they will have less income.
Not sure how sponsorship will go. They will have more local players and British players. Good British players may still play in the league but there will be less money to pay them.

So it may not be as much of a mismatch as all that for teams like Streatham, who already have that model, and can hope for even bigger crowds.
Not sure where it leaves teams like Solent yet. Not sure if they can even handle 'all ticket' games.

And then, if the EPL is resurrected again in a year or two's time, they'll have to do it all over again!



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.
