    Croatia How do the 3 Croatian teams survive?

    It seems that hockey is not covered by the Croatian media very much, if at all. And the 3 Croatian teams seem to draw between 50 and 200 fans per game.

    How do they survive and manage to pay their players???????

    medvescak has bigger croud in the interliga matches...but revnue from tickets and merchandise is just enoght to pay referees fee and other expenses...

    home born players just get pocket money...foregners in medvescak get up to 1500 euros per month + accomodation

    few sponsors, improvisation, city of zagreb is giving some funds to the clubs for youth categories - they also pay for the usage of icehalls...thats how they survive
