Criteria for retired numbers
1. Start of the professional career with SCB
2. Ten years with SCB
3. 2 championship titles with SCB
4. 50 games with the national team
5. End of career with SCB
Point 5 is a mandatory requirement. From the four further requirements usually three more must be met. SCB explicitly reserves its right to grant exceptions in case of particularly meritorious players.
They did not reach the status Retired Number because the were not with SCB for 10 years and, as imports, could not reach the criteria of the “50 games with the national team”. Yet they are SCB legends without a doubt.
