The Swiss League is the second tier of the main professional ice hockey league in Switzerland, behind the National League. The winners of this league each season play a best-of-seven series against the bottom team of the NL and, if they win, they are promoted, while the National League team is relegated to the Swiss League.

The attendance in 2016–17 was about 2,000 spectators.
