Munich is not promoted to the DEL
 
2. Bundesliga champion EHC Munich did not hand in all required application materials. Further a deposit of 816,000 € hasn't been made. For this reasons the DEL denied Munich the promotion to the major league.

It should be interesting to see, how many teams are going to play in the DEL next season. There's still trouble in Kassel, Cologne, Krefeld and Frankfurt and now Munich doesn't move up. Anything between 11 and 15 teams seems possible (but not likely).

Not the best news.:(

I think the league will be looking at 12 teams.
Not sure if just reducing the number of teams is the best way to safe the DEL.
It is not a bad thing to do but i don't think it will be enough.

I don't think this is over yet.

According to the DEL the club didn't present the guarantee-money (816000 EUR). Munich officials seemed to be surprised by this news because according to them they did transfer the money in time and have the Swift-copy in order to prove this.

The DEL also wanted more guarantees for a stadium renovation eventhough the current arena meets the 9000-points DEL-standard. Keep in mind that Munich is getting 2 new ice arenas as part of the olympic bid.

In their forum some users rumour that DEL executive Jürgen Arnold doesn't want Munich in the league because they would compete for sponsors with Arnolds club ERC Ingolstadt.

I think this is going to the courts.

last year arnold wanted to kick the ice tigers out of the league because he wanted some players from that team.

i wonder why he targets the huskies so much. must be a player he want. sponsors it can't be.

professional league, no doubt. :sarcasm:

Reminds me of when nobody wanted Wedemark in the league.
They tried everything but in the end they failed.

We had to leave the icehouse though. :(

If it's true what Dfire said, than the DEL is really looking for legal trouble this summer. Every year they have a new idea to keep the fans entertained throughout the summer. Sounds like both, Munich and Kassel have to fight their way to a new licence via legal measures.

Well what the DEL is doing once more is a joke. well at least Munich is back in the licensing procedure, well lets see the DEL can come up with this time.

Rather than use the World championship performance and winter olympic bit to build hockey in Germany, they argue and make decisions fans do not understand.

Well that being said the history of munich hockey in the DEL is not a good.

For anyone who cares, EHC were granted a license eventually and now after the first 12 games of the season are sitting atop the DEL!! :D
