The Swiss competition has only just started, but the cup tournament has ignited earlier already. With 16 teams left, here’s the draw for the next phase. Winners of these games will move on to the quarterfinals of the tournament.
In the men’s division, four NLB teams will compete. Some of them might face a hard time: Langenthal Aarwangen meets Alligator Malans and Basel Regio faces Wiler-Ersigen. Floorball Thurgau meets Waldkirch-St. Gallen, the club that is currently leading the NLA competition ranking. The last NLB team will be the winner of the game between Regazzi Verbano and Ad Astra Sarnen, yet to be played.
Between the NLA teams, most favorites seem to have a relatively easy draw. Tigers Langnau plays against Kloten-Dietlikon Jets, while Rychenberg has to beat UHC Thun in order to reach the quarters. Top games of this cup round will be the ones between Uster – GC Zürich and Zug United – Köniz. The games will be played on October 28.
