Berlin Wants To Host DEL Winter Game With Olympic Stadium, Alte Försterei Being Options
The first outdoor game of the German Hockey League (DEL), the DEL Winter Game between Nuremberg and Berlin, which attracted 50,000 fans to a sold out Frankenstadion in Nuremberg, "has whet the appetite of DEL club Eisbären Berlin," according to the BERLINER KURIER. Berlin "wants to host the Winter Game." Former Eisbären player Sven Felski said, "Everybody has seen what a great game it was. I hope, it has left its mark." Berlin's Olympic Stadium or the Alte Försterei, home of 2nd Bundeliga club FC Union, could host such an event. Olympic Stadium spokesperson Christoph Meyer said, "It's all a question of planning, expense budgeting and finally the execution. In principal this also would work at the Olympic Stadium. From our side, there aren't any problems" (BERLINER KURIER, 1/7).
