Horns were honking in Bern on Saturday night after ice hockey team SCB – the “bears” – beat EV Zug, 2:1, at the season final – a home game at the PostFinance Arena in Bern. It was the team’s 16th championship title.
The win comes just a week after Bern’s Young Boys (YB) football club won the decisive match guaranteeing its status as the national champion – even though the season isn’t quite finished. It’s the club’s 13th Swiss title.
The mayor of Bern, Alec von Graffenried, remarked on Twitter that the double-championship had never happened within his lifetime.
While YB is wildly popular in the city of Bern, SCB has a strong national following. City authorities are now looking into an official double-celebration.
