Just about seven months after their re-organization, our partner, ice-hockey club EV Füssen has already confirmed the new form by advancing ahead of time to the next higher league, the “Landesliga”.
Founded in December 1922 as “Eissportverein Füssen”, between the 1940ies and 70ies the club was one of Germany’s most dominating teams. Winning 16 German championships made them the second most successful club in Germany.
Since the beginning of this season, former goalkeeper Thomas Zellhuber is the new coach. Zellhuber is absolutely happy with his team and said. “It was always our target to advance. After the preliminary round we had already won 20 games out of 20! We knew this was a qualification round for the play-offs.
Our comeback is in full swing – something that has only been possible with the help of our partners and sponsors, like Neuschwansteiner.
We hereby would like to express our appreciation for the great support and are very happy to know that we have strong partners at our side.
Of course we didn’t have too much time for big celebrations as our target is the championship title, but we made sure to toast to success and confirmation to advance with the entire team with some nice chilled Neuschwansteiner.
Now we are fully focussed on the upcoming weekend, as we have the chance to win the regional league championship title. The victory would be a fabulous success! We are quoted as favourites and feel quite comfortable in this prominent position.
The great team-spirit as well as the fact that we are a young team with a healthy mix of youth and experience, technical strength and great running qualities are our advantages as well as our winning formula.
We send greetings and THANKS to our fans – please keep your fingers crossed for Sunday and come to see our game, Sunday March 6th!”
Christian Seitz, Neuschwansteiner CEO and founder said: “Congratulations to EV Füssen! We trusted that they would deliver great results in their comeback season and are very happy that they actually even exceeded our expectations. Now we of course keep our fingers crossed and wish them the very best for their game on Sunday to win the championship so they will have one more reason to celebrate with us!”
We will continue to post news and soon also come cool pictures of our Neuschwansteiner on the ice, so stay keep watching our blog for more about the EVF!
We wish the entire club a successful game on Sunday!
