Swiss Ice Hockey

There won't be a "Hockey Hall of Fame" in Switzerland during the IIHF Worlds next year. At least, not a real one.

Originally, Swiss Ice Hockey planned to set up a real "Hockey Hall of Fame" in Switzerland for the World Championship in Zürich and Lausanne. But now, the plans have changed, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung reports. There will only be a digital Hall of Fame on the SIHF's website.

As the SIHF's head of communications, Manuela Hess, tells the NZZ, the digital version of the Hall of Fame is "cost-saving". Due to a mistake in their budget, the federation has to save money.
