After a two-years dispute, Estonian Federation and HC Viking have come to an agreement

Finally the "Estonia Federation vs HC Viking Tallinn saga" comes to an end: after a dispute began almost two years ago, the club and the governing body of national hockey have reached to an agreement, allowing the club, expelled from all the competitions last season, to partecipate in next domestic league, called Meistriliiga.

"A compromise on the financial dispute between the club and the Federation was reached"- said Viking CEO Anatoli Sizov. - "The agreement  was signed in the first half of May, and then approved by the court."

In June the Meeting of Executive Board of the Federation certified that the existing debt of 12.000 Euro was paid by the club and accordingly Viking was readmitted as member.

"I thought first of all at the interests of the team, I wish the players have the opportunity to go on the ice and play hockey" said Sizov - "With the restore of our membership I hope that this unpleasant story will end and our players will be able to perform in the championship"

In 2014-15 HC Viking, admitted as new club after the predecessor, called HK Viiking Tallinn, folded due to a bad financial situation despite two consecutive titles, dominated the regular season, but before the start of the playoffs was suspended from the league, without being able to participate in playoffs, and later expelled from the members of Estonian Federation. Last season Viking tried desperately to partecipate in a competition, also abroad in Latvia, but its status of non-member of the Federation was a insurmountable obstacle
