The Belfast Giants are Ireland’s premier ice hockey team and are venturing into their 10th season as a franchise.
The Giants have enjoyed success to the tune of two League Championships and a Playoff championship whilst exerting themselves at the highest level of British ice hockey.
Northern Ireland’s only professional ice hockey team have succeeded on the European stage too, competing in the finals of the Continental Cup, ice hockey’s equivalent to football’s Champions’ League.
NHL legend Theo Fleury spent the 2005/06 season with the Giants and helped guide the team to a the Elite League Championship. Fleury took to the ice for his first game in Giants' colours to play the Edinburgh Capitals at the Odyssey Arena in October 2005 and scored 7 points (3 goals, 4 assists). Fleury was named as the Elite League's most valuable player, voted by the ice hockey writers association. 2008/09 was the Giants most successful season in their short history, winning the Challenge Cup and British Knock-Out Cup, two of British ice hockey’s major championships.
Last season was also a major success off the ice as the Belfast Giants welcomed their one millionth visitor to professional ice hockey in Belfast
