Finally, after three weeks of rest, the Swiss competition plays its next rounds, first on Friday/Saturday, followed by another one on Sunday.

The weekend starts off with a top match on Friday night: GC Zürich versus Köniz, #3 meets #1. The gap between the two is just two points, so a victory could bring GC to the top of the ranking – at least for one day, that is. On Saturday Wiler-Ersigen faces Chur Unihockey and as Wiler is at 2nd place, they too have a shot at the leading spot in the ranking. Chur has only gained seven points thus far, so hopefully, the three-week break gave them time to power up again.

Zug United – with Billy Nilsson, who just gave a big interview to FloorballToday – is looking for opportunities to climb in the ranking. Their seventh place is impressive, but as Saturday’s opponent Kloten-Bülach Jets is on tenth place, a victory seems possible. Three more games on Saturday night – apart from Chur-Wiler – are HC Rychenberg – UHC Uster, UHC Thun – Tigers Langnau and Waldkirch-St. Gallen – Alligator Malans. Rychenberg has gained only eight (!) points so far. With their current ninth position they would not even reach the playoffs. One spot higher: opponent Uster, which means this could become a tight match!

Thun is back at where it has been last season all days: the last spot. With current #4 Tigers Langnau visiting, it doesn’t seem likely this will change. WaSa (6th place) meets Malans (5th place). The home team will be traveling around in the region this weekend, as they’ve decided the full region should be able to watch their games. Their ‘WaSa on Tour’ will bring them to Herisau on Saturday and Gossau on Sunday.
