Ligue Magnus reduces participants

25 Jun 2012 | Davide Tuniz

From the 2014-2015 season French main league will count with 12 clubs. League Cup will be canceled.

During the General Assembly held on June 24, French Federation presented to all Ligue Magnus, 1 and 2 Division clubs the conclusions of a study started in 2009 about the health of French hockey, divided in different parts: sports organization, marketing and communication, training, advice and expertise. The conclusions, amongst other things, suggested a reduction of Ligue Magnus clubs from current 14 to 12 to better develop the junior movement. The proposal was voted unanimously and will come into force from season 2014-15.

The new Ligue Magnus will have a double home-away round robin for a total of 44 games (current are 26) in regular season. The first 8 clubs will compete for playoffs, the last 4 will play a play-out to avoid relegation. The League Cup (Coupe de la Ligue) will be canceled. All clubs will receive training to better organize human resources and administration, communication and marketing, and the Federation will create a dedicated website for Magnus Ligue.
