I agree with Torero here. The last team to earn a promotion out of nowhere was Herisau, and look at where they are now. Even Chur, who looked a lot more NLA capable than Visp now, couldn't survive after returning to the NLB, and if you look even further in the past, you have La Chaux-de-Fonds, Olten and Ajoie who had years of mediocrity and barely escaped bankrupt after their last stint in the NLA. I can't see a possible promotion ending well for them.

By the way, if Ambrý loses against Rapperswil, I wonder how Visp and Ambrý will travel to each other's arena? That would be the worst case of teams so close geographically but so far away when you look at travel time.
