EBEL is closed league. There is no classic promotion-relegation system like in Sweden. If you want to join EBEL you have to have some conditions to justify, particularly that you gonna have budget deep enough to ice competetive team. Slovenian club Jesenice were ejected from EBEL (with possibility of return) because they are in deep financial ***** and when they fix it they can return to EBEL. Jesenice were first non-austrian team to join the league. So, EBEL is closed league
