They had an average attendance of 3,114 in the regular season. Only Wolfsburg was worse.

Schwenningen had 2,934 in the 2.Bundesliga (regular season) and more than 5,000 in the playoffs. And this isn't a big city like Hannover.

I am definitely glad to see a team like Schwenningen back at the top level. I hope they do well.
The truth is that the Scorpions have never been Hannover`s team. Originally they were located in the suburbs (Wedemark). Hannover hockey is ECH (the boys from "Pferdeturm"). Too bad they suspended operations due to financial problems (again), so Hannover has no hockey club as of now.
But I'm sure there will be a new club in the forseeable future.
