I think a big part of the reason, is that the Hannover Scorpions were more or less just planted in the city as an DEL franchise. I think a lot of fans in Hannover rather go to see the Hannover Indians play. That team, while playing in 2.Bundesliga, has about the same attendance figures as the Scorpions. And since hockey isn't as big in Germany, and particular in the northern part, Hannover cannot really fill the arenas for two teams.

I am not from that area though, so I could be wrong.
