The three clubs that have achieved promotion to the world’s strongest league are known. The teams of Bergischer HC and TV Emsdetten have already been promoted weeks ago, while ThSV Eisenach joined them this week. For ThSV Eisenach this is a huge feat, after relegating in 2004, and then in 2009 experiencing problems with club finances. Bergischer HC played in the Bundesliga last season but relegated, and now with the promotion it’s another chance for them to try to keep up in the Bundesliga as much as they can. For TV Emsdetten this is first going to be first Bundesliga experience, previous huge success was DHB-Pokal semifinal in 1983.
