A few remarks: Köpenick is not 100% sure regarding financial state, but they think they should finish it positively.

VCO Berlin will play with new, much younger roster, so it is questionable, if this will not result in losing all sets clearly like two years ago against the professional teams.

Erfurt has both the financial state and an adequate, rule conforming hall, so they should be accepted by VBL, because even with them there are just 11 professional teams (VCO is not counting into this league size) like before, while 12 is the officially (rules book) desired number.

From second league none of the altogether three eligible teams had the financial resources to request a first league license (Leverkusen from North, Offenburg and Straubing from South).

Opposed to men's league there were no wildcard applicants at all (for example with Lohhof one could think of such a trial, but they also found not the money to do so).

On 1. May the league will announce, if all clubs get licenses who applied for one. After that we can collect the new rosters IMHO here.
