    August preseason games?

    Hey I'm thinking about taking a trip to Europe in August and I'd like to watch some hockey. Does anyone know of any preseason games going on other than the European trophy? I'd like to see some games in Switzerland/ England/ or France preferably!

    Any help would be awesome!

    Basel released their test matches, I can get you the French clubs test matches when they start to release them. Since its still early and most clubs dont have their test matches yet (or tournaments, Swiss host tons of tournaments), I can get you the rest of the Swiss clubs matches later on. For now..

    11.8 - Lausanne HC v. EHC Basel @18.00 (Champéry)
    14.8 - HC Sierre v. EHC Basel @17.00 (Yverdon)
    18.8 - EHC Basel v. Landshut @17.30
    21.8 - EHC Basel v. HC Ajoie @20.00

    If you want to stay this late then...
    25.8 EHC Basel v. SERC Wild Wings 04 @18.00 (unknown location)

    Looks like the games versus Landshut and Ajoie are most promising in my schedule. Hoping to catch a few matches in London of the Barclay's Premier league then fly in to zurich after. If anyone wants to join me and a few friends they are more than welcome.

    Where would I find VISP's and ZUG's preseason matches when they come out? Those are my two favorite European teams...

    Visp schedule is here (still has last years calendar right now): http://www.ehc-visp.ch/ehc-visp-die-...aft/spielplan/

    Zug is playing in European Trophy this year so its on ET website: http://europeantrophy.com/schedule.php

    The National League website also posts all test matches for every club so you can use that to get other clubs test matches..
    http://www.nationalleague.ch/NL/spie...hp?season=2012

    *I just noticed that the National League website link will take you to their 2011/2012 calendar and wont update, I will do it once they change over the season.

    Oh ya that's right. Zug will be in Finland or Sweden I think during the weekends I wanted to see them. Perhaps I'll just go to Berlin and see Eisbaren. Wherever I go i'm stoked to see some more European hockey. I saw Visp play Hc Sierre Anivers (sp?) and got to see Zug practice a few times a few years ago. Great style of hockey to watch.
