Well this will be interesting. After the HC Bolzano left for the Austrian Hockey League, you knew that the Serie A were doomed. This new league could be helpful to relaunch the ice hockey in Italy.

Will be keeping an eye on this league. Even if Italian hockey doesn't have a domestic league, this is essentially that previous leagues teams correct??

Minus one team, Valpellice. Don't know if they are dropping to a lower Italian league or if they are just ceasing.

Actually for Italy, if they want a relaunch, they have got to have teams on the south side of the country past the likes of Bologna or Florence. It's absolutely nuts the amount of teams they have in the North, even if it's because of the mountains. Just look at France, they have a lot of the teams in the Alps, no questions about that, but they have a couple throughout the country like Amiens, Rouen, Angers, Bordeaux, and Nice to name a couple.

I agree it was never much of an 'Italian' league more of South Tyrol league but you can't put a team in say Bari just for the sake of it. Travel costs would rocket and it would destabilise everything.

Maybe Italy needs a North/South conference system if teams ever appear in the south.

Valpellice had to cease due to funding issues, they announced at the end of last season. They just couldn't afford to join the new league, maybe also due to distance issues? They would be the furthest Italian team, as they are based all the way in west Piemonte.

It also doesn't help that many of the Italian teams are from German speaking regions and all of the highlights they broadcast online are in German. It doesn't make it very accessible to the general population.
