Next season Latvian club will play just in domestic league due to lack of funds


Bad news come from Liepaja: Metalurgs General Manager Ilgvars Šens announced next season the team won't partecipate in Belarusian Open League and Russian MHL: "Today I had a long meeting with the Sports Club boss and major investor Sergejs Zaharjins after which I had to tell unpleasant news to the team's players. Our main supporter, Metalurgs firm, is currently doing very badly - not profits, products not bought ... It all led to the financial support for teams is greatly reduced. So we are forced to allign the team just in Latvian Domestic Championship next season. We don't impede those players who will have the opportunity to go and play somewhere else. Footbal won't be so affected because costs aren't so high.Hockey takes up about a third of the team's total budget."
