"In recent years, we as THL have brought structure to our competitions and built bridges between the clubs and the KBHB," adds Michel Schuermans, director of the THL. "Now, thanks to ION's support, we can further roll out our strategy. The ION Hockey League is the THL 2.0! With the resources we will now have, we can make our championship even more attractive by developing new things. First and foremost, we want to expand our digital footprint with a new website and a shared streaming platform. By installing smart cameras, we can stream all games - at least the ones that are not live on TV - and automatically generate highlights of all games to share through our various channels."
The ION Hockey League gets back underway next weekend with the Oree-Leuven match on Sunday, Feb. 27 (at 12:30 p.m.), which can be viewed live on Telenet, Proximus and VOO channels. The league ends with the ION Hockey Finals on May 7 and 8, 2022 in Louvain-la-Neuve.
