I read somewhere that "The Swisscom Challenge will move from the ice rink at the Schluefweg to a different location next year."
Is it true?
Does somebody know where the new location is gonna be?I guess somewhere else but still in Zurich? :confused:
Thanx :)

This will be the last year at the current stadium. They will move into central Zurich next year, I believe they are building the new stadium now.The big disadvantage at Schluefweg is that there is only 1 court, I think that's one of the main reasons they are moving.

From next year, the tournament will be held in the Hallenstadion of Zürich. The later is being renovated atm.
The funny thing is that it will move from the ice rink of the Kloten Flyers to the home of the second Zürich hockey team, the Zürich Lions! On the other hand, the Hallenstadion is more of a multi-event complex while the Schluefweg is really an ice rink :)

right now it's not even in the city of zurich, so it's great they're moving into town (thought "central zurich" is a bit exaggerated... ;) )
