Season start of the Luxembourg Hockey League
3 news teams, 11 in total!
In only its third year, the Luxembourg Hockey League is continuing it's impressive growth. This year, three new teams are joining the league: Grands Ducs Luxembourg, Beaufort Knights 3, Hurricanes Luxembourg 2 (which is an U18 national selection gathering talent from all clubs). There will be 5 teams in division 1 and 6 teams in division 2. In Division 1, the newly founded Grands Ducs Luxembourg are hoping to make a run for the championship. Their pre-season games have been promising, but it will be a tough battle. Last year's finalists Tornado Luxembourg and Beaufort Knights have started their seasons in France and Belgium with success, while the three main challengers Puckers Luxembourg, Grands Ducs Luxembourg as well as the Hurricanes seem to be in great shape as well.
One game every 3 days!
More and more hockey games are played in Luxembourg. This year, on average, we will have a senior hockey game every 3 days. That's a new record.

We will communicate the final date once we have it.
