History

There is history here

With ice hockey having been played in Edinburgh since 1945, the sport in Scotland’s capital has one of the richest histories anywhere in the UK. Having started life as the Edinburgh Royals and then the Racers until the mid-1990s, the Edinburgh Capitals are the current residents of Murrayfield Ice Rink, founded in 1998.

Stepping up

Having spent seven years in the now defunct British National League (BNL) the Capitals made the step up to the Elite Ice Hockey League for the 2005/06 season. This season saw the return of Edinburgh ice hockey legend, Tony Hand.

As the club has continued to adapt, our brand and logo have also changed over the years.

Looking ahead

Many trophies have been won and lost on our historic home ice, and the current crop have the ambition and drive to add to the success of past teams.

Since their inaugural season in 1998, the club has continued to hit new levels. Superstar players have come and gone, however the club is always looking forward, continually improving season by season.
