DEL Club Dusseldorf EG Secures Budget For '14-15, Pushes Ahead With Winter Game Bid
Published January 16, 2014
WINTER GAME: The club is also "pushing ahead with its application to host the DEL Winter Game" in Jan. '15. Dusseldorf "wants to host the game at the ESPRIT arena," which is the home of 2nd Bundeliga club Fortuna Dusseldorf. The DEG wants to play against rival Cologne Sharks in front of 50,000 spectators. Cologne, which also submitted a bid to host the game, "wants to play the Krefeld Penguins at the Veltins-Arena in Schalke" (WESTDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, 1/15). The EXPRESS reported both cities "will present their individual Winter Game concepts to the DEL on Monday." It is expected that the league "will come down with a decision on which city will host the game later that day" (EXPRESS, 1/14).
