    Also forgot to mention this is awesome news! I need to be watching more matches my only pet peeve about most coverage I come by has no play by play. I don't care whether it is in French or German or Italian I like to have that noise.

    I do find it a bit humorous that the third division gets more live coverage of games than the second division since the second division has only the Monday night game available for broadcast.

    I agree rather strange and honestly with Servette going up how much interest will there be?

    see I thought the 3rd tier was called the Promotion League... thus my confusion!

    Technically it is both.
    Premier (1st) League - Promotion = 3rd Division
    Premier (1st) League - Classic = 4th Division

    I always thought the fifth division was called the Erste Liga and the fifth division Zweite Liga Interregional. At least that's how I've always seen them referred.

    I'll probably watch Cham if there's nothing else going on. If Zug 94 manage to make it that high, I'll try to check them out, too. Other than that, I can't really see any reason to watch them.

    Funny enough, Lega Pro, which is the third tier of Italian soccer, has all of their matches available live for free on a website called Sportube.tv. They also have all of the highlights after the games are over on demand. Since I have a big interest in Italian soccer's top two divisions, I usually watch the playoffs to see who goes up to Serie B.

    Cham with a 6-0 victory over FC Sion II. They are currently 5 points ahead of Servette, but Servette plays tonight in the Geneva Derby against Etoile Carouge. With 8 matches to play, Etoile Carouge sits 5 points from safety. They are currently in last place.

    Zug 94 is only ten points back of those playoff places. They struggled this year, but they'll be back next year. Hopp Zug!!

    17 April
    Servette - Tuggen 3-0

    Servette moves ahead of Cham by 1 point. It seems almost like Cham is a different team since the club announced that they would not be seeking a license. Servette needs 5 points to clinch promotion.

    Servette 53
    Cham 50

    Servette now sits 13 points ahead of Old Boys. There are 5 matches to play. Here is the situiation. If they win one of the remaining matches, or Old Boys loose one of their remaining matches Servette is promoted. With Cham refusing promotion, and Basel II ineligible, all could be decided next week.

    On the bottom end, if Etoilie Carouge wins this week, which would be two in a row, they would move out of the relegation zone and put FCZ II and FCSG II into it.

    1st League Classic - Group 1
    FC Stade Lausanne - Ouchy 44
    La Chaux-de-Fonds 38

    Servette received their license this morning, so they are all but promoted.

    Stade Nyonnais - Servette
    FCZ II - Cham

    I will be pulling for Cham this weekend as I would love a great escape by Etoile Carouge, and a FCZ II loss makes that all the more possible. Servette with a win this weekend wins promotion. The championship is still in doubt, but promotion due to Cham deciding not to pursue a license is almost there.

    FCZ II - Cham 2-0
    Stade Nyonnais - Servette 1-2

    Servette wins promotion this past weekend.
    Cham's loss continues their slide since they announced that they would not seek promotion. They now sit 6 points back with 4 matches left.

    FCZII's victory combined with Etoile Carouge's defeat to Kriens make survival for Etoile Carouge very unlikely.

    1st League Classic - Group 1

    Promotion League:
    Neither Servette or Cham played, Servette could not play because the field at Rapperswil-Jona was unplayable. It has been moved to Wednesday. Cham plays at Tuggen tomorrow. With 3 matches left for both teams, Cham needs to claim all 9 points and Servette must loose all 3 matches for Servette not to be the champion.

    Relegation:
    FC Koeniz 32
    FCZ II 32
    Tuggen 32*
    Sion II 31
    FCSG II 30
    Etoile Carouge 25

    With 2 matches left for Etoile Carouge, they are almost assuredly done for. Their only real hope to avoid relegation in that Biel gets sent down a long ways (2nd Interregional League), thus keeping one additional spot in the Promotion League for them.

    1st League Classic - Group 1 Two matches left
