About the PostFinance Arena :
Ice Hockey and PostFinance belong together
PostFinance has had close links with Swiss ice hockey for many years: With its headquarters in Berne, the company supports not only the Swiss Ice Hockey Federation (SIHF) and the National League, but also the national teams and especially talented young ice hockey players.
Investing in the ice hockey stars of tomorrow
Since 2001, the PostFinance Top Scorers in the NLA and NLB have been scoring points for ice hockey juniors. A point is given for every goal, every assist and every second assist. The more points that the top scoring players of each club achieve by the end of the qualifying round, the more money PostFinance pays into the coffers of each junior division.
PostFinance and SC Bern: a strong partnership
PostFinance has a long and successful history of cooperation with the Berne Ice Skating Club. PostFinance has had its own box in the VIP area for several years, it is the principal sponsor and since 2013 has been a direct neighbour of SC Bern.
