The Austrian National League (German: Österreichische Eishockey-Nationalliga) is a former second tier ice hockey league in Austria. For the 2012–13 it was replaced by the Inter-National League.

Decline[edit]

With the conclusion of the 2011–12 season, seven of the twelve teams left the league. Two teams, Dornbirner and TWK Innsbruck were invited to join the Austrian Hockey League [1] The farm teams of the Vienna Capitals, EC KAC and the EHC Black Wings Linz all withdrew to join a junior Austrian Hockey League. This proved to be the end of the National League. Four of the remaining teams - EK Zell am See, EHC Bregenzerwald, VEU Feldkirch and EHC Lustenau - all subsequently joined the Inter-National League.
