Czechs to admit Slovak clubs in top Czech hockey division


Czech hockey clubs have refused to admit two Slovak clubs into the top Czech hockey league. In a vote on Thursday, 13 out of 14 Czech top division clubs voted against admitting HC Košice and Slovan Bratislava in the Czech Tipsport Extraliga; one club abstained. The two Slovak hockey clubs applied to join the Czech top division earlier this year in an attempt to revive the former federal hockey league.
