Tomorrow the Swiss NLA will officially kick off (check our website tomorrow for a preview) but today the pre-party will start! Wiler-Ersigen (cup winner) and Köniz (Swiss champions) will play against each other in the Swiss Supercup at 19.00 local time.
In the Zürich Sporthalle, rivals Köniz and Wiler-Ersigen will meet in a revanche meeting of the Swiss finals which was ultimately won by Köniz. Both teams have gotten a lot of changes. Köniz received a new coach and had to let go of several key players so with only weeks of preparation it is the question of how well-oiled their machine really is at this point. On the other side, we find Wiler-Ersigen who crushed the regular NLA season and cup but, surprisingly, failed to deliver in the Swiss finals which was supposed to bring a dream end to an incredible season. Instead of celebrations, the team was forced to grant the championship to Köniz after a surprisingly one-sided match. Has the team had enough time to recover from this blow and are their faces aligned towards their next goal? Furthermore, how much will they miss their star player Daniel Johnsson, who is still recovering from an injury and will miss the first part of the season? Tonight we will hopefully see the answers to all questions above as the match will give us a glimpse of the strength of these two teams.
