Economic trouble for Frisk Asker - sacks players

28 Jul 2011 | Fredrik Pålsson

Norwegian elite club Frisk Asker Tigers takes action to clean up their economy after some seasons with deficits and has decided to sack three of their best payed players and some of the administrative staff.

The players that are being released from their contracts due to the economic situation of the club is former NHLer Anders Myrvold and the two Swedes Stefan Erkgärds and Marcus Olsson. Myrvold was heading for his second season with the club, while the two Swedes were new signings for the season. They will now all have to find new clubs.

"The club must be run with sound economic principles," Chairman of the Board Per Christian Johansen said on the club's website. "It means that we should be able to pay our invoices on time and fulfill our obligations. That's not the case today." Johansen finished by saying, "We can't use money that we don't have".

Frisk Asker finished on seventh place in GET ligaen last year.
