The return to the Scorpions of Mulhouse is still written in dotted lines this Saturday, August 15, 2020. While the Mulhouse club has welcomed new reinforcements in its workforce in recent days, the national monitoring and management control commission (CNSCG), the Financial policeman of the League, failed his file. Not sure at the moment that the club is allowed to compete in the Magnus League, of which the championship starts on September 26, 2020. The Scorpions must start with an away match, in Cergy (Val-d’Oise).
“After being summoned last week, and despite having provided the additional documents requested by the CNSCG at the beginning of the week, the latter decided not to validate us“confirmed this Friday, August 14 the club on social networks.”We can only wonder about this decision. (…) We will immediately appeal“, add the leaders.
The financial situation of the Mulhouse club has been weakened by the coronavirus crisis. The Illberg ice rink, which can accommodate up to 1,605 spectators, cannot this season bring in that 546 people in the enclosure, which inevitably induces cash losses. Therefore, Scorpios have revised their budget down by 20%. But this obviously did not convince the CNSCG.
All the other Magnus League clubs have had their budget validated by the CNSCG. The Rouen Dragons were like Mulhouse in the hot seat, but their file was finally validated at the last meeting on August 13.
