In ice hockey, games in the NHL on January 1st are just as traditional as in football in the Premier League. Now Swiss ice hockey can also enjoy a New Year’s game for the first time. At 8 p.m. the top game ZSC Lions – Biel will take place. The return of coach Marc Crawford to the ZSC gang receives an additional explosiveness. And broadcast live on free TV on TV24.

But it will remain a one-time pleasure, at least for the time being. A New Year’s cracker that is attractive for the sport will not become a tradition in ice hockey until further notice. Because actually it is not allowed to start championship games of the National League on January 1st! This day is a blocked date for the Spengler Cup in Davos, which ends on December 31st. This is regulated between the National League and the traditional tournament.
