9. Payment for IISHF Livestreaming 2019

As mentioned in IISHF Communication Letter 2019-09 as of 2nd April 2019 the following applies:
The IISHF Presidium has updated the previous IISHF Livestreaming Support Package in a 2019 version - attached here again. As mentioned in the minutes from the AGM 2019 (point 20 - presentation of budget for 2019) the amount of support for live streaming from IISHF in 2019 has been fixed to a maximum of 2.000 Euro.

That means that we do not know before the end of the season (when then last title event has taken place) how much money shall be paid out and to whom. Simple example:
- Four teams offer live streaming and normally should get a package of 500 EUR each equal 2.000 EUR in total.
- At the last event a fifth host offers live streaming for 500 EUR equal 2.500 EUR in total.
- As consequence each host would then get only 400 EUR (2.000 divided by 5).

In order to complete the payment for 2019 please provide information about livestream provided for each IISHF Title Event 2019 covered including the number of games covered in which content (package 1, 2 or 3 as described in the attachment including sufficient documentation) and please state who should receive the payment including bank information. Deadline for delivery of this information is within 3 weeks so deadline shall be Friday 13th December 2019.

Please note that if no information is provided within the deadline no payment should be expected unless IISHF already have enough information (in this case the IISHF decision of the amount of payment will be used)
