they refused to sign the new 4 years contract with the national federation. nothing more specifical is known yet, they said they will reveil more in the next week.

 

All what was medialized and speculated during the last days was they disagreed with some points in this new deal, for example they wanted apparently only a 1 year deal, but the federation arguing every athlete have to sign the same contract, including 4 years duration of the agreement, and + obviously some marketing and funding things were other disputed matters I guess...but it´s really only speculations, we´ll see their statement next week. the only sure thing is they will not compete this season for sure (at least not for Slovakia, there some rumors about Austria showing some interest...but again, it´s only rumors and speculations)

 

here one article from last week were they partly revealed what the dispute is about. (in SVK, but I guess you can understand it)

Much as I hate to say it, I hope the Slovaks get 0 results this season. Nothing against Slovakia, nothing against the athletes, but 100% because I would love to see the federation be in trouble by a complete and utter lack of results. Banning athletes from competing because they won't sign your little contract...the fuck do you think you are? The Emperor of the World?

Yes, athletes themselves couldn't possibly be a problem. It's a federation by default.
