Default NIHL In Trouble Already?

Looks like the NIHL South setup agreed only 2 weeks ago at the League meeting could already be in trouble.

Rumour has it that 2 or three teams have already requested to drop to NIHL 2 due to costs etc

Default Re: NIHL In Trouble Already?

From EIHA site,
"The League Management Committee (LMC) of NIHL South is desperately sad to announce that overnight and this morning the Solent Devils, Oxford City Stars and Chelmsford Chieftains told the LMC that they wished to withdraw from NIHL 1.

This is a dark day for the NIHL and no doubt the repercussions of this issue will be felt for some time to come.

After our meeting on 7 May, where the League was in such a positive place, it is desperately disappointing to see this happen. We would like to thank all three clubs for what they have brought to NIHL 1 over the years and they will be truly missed.

Several of these teams have requested relegation to NIHL 2. This will be considered by the LMC over the coming days and a full statement will be made at that time to include the agreed structure for NIHL 1 and NIHL 2 in the South.

The LMC continues to speak with all of the member clubs in the NIHL South to reach a solution as soon as possible.

Finally we thank the supporters of the teams for their patience in this difficult time and we will issue a further statement as quickly as we can."
