The prescribed procedures and disciplinary actions in the Fundamental Rules and GameBook replace respective, general regulations in the disciplinary code of ÖEHV.

ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga Fundamental Rules and the GameBook are the bases for the working format of the ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga. On occasions, a potential issue may arise that is not otherwise covered within the rules.

In the event a potential issue may arise in the course of a season, which is not currently covered with the ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga Fundamental Rules or ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga GameBook (but pertains to), the ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga team can request a “special request” through an application and description of the issue.

The special request will be reviewed by the ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga with the required recommendations based on expertise and experience.


The final decision will be based on the special request description a team has put forward and supporting information the ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga provides with a final decision by a 4-member panel requiring a minimum of a 75% in support vote to be passed. The Special Request Panel will be formed as the following members:

  • ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga President

  • ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga Sports Committee Chairman

  • ERSTE BANK Eishockey Liga Justice Commission (2 members)
