Niklas Gällstedt will serve as new head coach of Kloten until further notice. He was Tirkkonen’s assistant up to today. He will be assisted by André Rötheli. Peter Lüthi (head of strategic development) and Beat Equilino (team manager and media manager) will take on the tasks of Pascal Müller for the time being.

Kloten has only been able to gain six points out of 13 games this season. A performance which was no longer acceptable to Kloten's Board of Directors who thus decided today to make some significant changes in Kloten's leadership team.
