Ambassador Nino Niederreiter about the safety program

Nino Niederreiter

«Many trainers, coaches and other volunteers make a huge contribution to ice hockey. They drive children to training and matches, sometimes over long distances. It's great that Swiss Ice Hockey and Zurich are supporting these important people in all clubs, helping them to provide the greatest possible safety for the players."
