The SC Rapperswil-Jona has found it´s home at the "Lido", a new and modern arena with a capacity of roughly 6.000 divided into 2.500 seats and 3.500 standing-room spaces.

The team whose biggest success was the rise to the NLA in 1994 was founded in 1945. At the moment the transformtation to a corporation is under way in order to give the club modern structures.

Especially games against Zuerich, Kloten and Lugano are definetly worth the price of admission. Tickets aren´t tough to find for normal games due to the relatively low turnout at games in Rapperswil.

Rapperswil is also known for it´s very tight security at the arena´s doors. Each fan basically has to strip to his underpants and you can expect long waiting-lines at times at the main-entrance.

Fans of the team will also never forget the few but glorious days in the fall of 1995 when Doug Gilmour, an NHL-superstar, played for the team for a short period of time. The same can be said about the aquisition of Paul Icebeart for the 1999/2000 campaign.
