Who will play the Champions Hockey League?
Pro-Hockey director Richard Lintner solves the situation. The problem, however, is who will get the first chance to play: "I am in contact with the Champions League director Martin Baumann. We discuss about different ways to deal with this situation, but there is no default system to say that in the case, when a champion will not enter the competition, the second team or a defeated finalist will compete,“ said Richard Lintner exclusively for hokejovysvet.sk.

The management of HKM Zvolen, the second team after the base and HK Nitra (the defeated finalist) have already started to deal with the situation. The directorate of Zvolen concluded that they will not attend. Neither Nitra will compete in CHL. "We will not sign up for the same reasons as Banská Bystrica," said general manager Tomáš Chrenko for our website. Interest was in HK Poprad, but either this variant did not work out.
