National League

The free TV games will no longer be broadcasted on Sunday at 20:00 as of next season.

Instead, games will now be broadcasted on regular game days and on Thursday evenings. "The games on Sunday evening proved to be difficult for the clubs and the spectators," Denis Vaucher, CEO of the National League, said. "Thursday evening, on the other hand, is already familiar for the spectators as there are usually playoff games scheduled for that day."

Vaucher added that he hopes that with this adjustment, both the fans and their broadcasting partner will be satisfied. For now, at least eight games will be scheduled for a Thursday evening. Also, every team will get at least one Sunday afternoon game. Puck-drop is supposed to be at 15:45.
