ZURICH – At their meeting on February 23rd in Zurich, the IIHF Council discussed the replies from Europe’s top-8 leagues with regards to the IIHF’s original proposal (from January 20, 2011) to re-launch the Champions Hockey League for the 2011-2012 season. The deadline for league responses was February 17.

As the majority of the leagues were not in favour of accepting the IIHF’s offer for a re-launch for the 2011-2012 season, the Council decided to postpone the Champions Hockey League plans. The IIHF will continue the dialogue with all the relevant parties to reach a solution for the future.
