I'm a big fan of this EBEL project, which Znojmo is participating. I like this type of competition on regular season basis, where is a "many" nations participating.
In Znojmo (30k city) is strange situation, right now. The soccer team is promoted from second tier to first league. Regardless the fact, that there is insufficient stadium and there are "no soccer spectators". People in Znojmo are mostly loving hockey. But managment of soccer club wants to play 1st league. Fragmented interests produce many kind of rumors, such as the most popular one, regarding Znojmo these days, that Znojmo is heading to leave EBEL. Fans of Znojmo in EBEL are scared about outflow sponsors and about everyone spectator, who is about, fragmenting his sport preference or changing his mind nowadays.
