FC Breitenrain will not be promoted to the Challenge League. Because no affordable stadium solution could be found in the short term, the Stadtberner Quartierverein withdrew the appeal in the licensing process. Thus, the traditional club will continue to play in the third-highest league in the coming season, regardless of any possible promotion.
In mid-April, the Swiss Football League had denied FC Breitenrain, who is four points ahead of the table at the top of the Promotion League three rounds before the end, the license for the second-highest division in the first instance. The reason given by the SFL was primarily the insufficient infrastructure. For example, the Spitalacker sports field, known as “Spitz”, home of FC Breitenrain, lacks a lighting system that meets the requirements of the Challenge League. (SDA)
