League History

The Erste Bank Eishockey Liga was founded in 2003. This unique, multicultural league has teams participating from five different European nations. While the majority of the teams are Austrian (8), there is also one club each in Hungary, Slovenia, Italy and the Czech Republic. Red Bull Salzburg currently holds the record of six championship titles, including the last two in a row. The U20 (Erste Bank Youngstars League) and the U18 (Erste Bank Juniors League) are also part of the league and are equally multicultural leagues. Four nations take part in the U20 and five nations in the U18.
