SENIOR ICE HOCKEY TIMELINE AT MURRAYFIELD

1/10

Murrayfield Ice rink has a rich HISTORY which dates back to 1938. Professional Ice Hockey was first played when the rink finally opened in 1952 and the Royals were formed. The rink struggled financially and was put into voluntary liquidation by the shareholders in June 1956. After an absence of two seasons professional ice hockey was quickly reintroduced however by the start of the 60’s, British ice hockey had entered a new 'amateur’ phase which was to remain for nearly 20 years. There have been a number of Teams over the years with the most successful tenure being the Murrayfield Racers (1966 - 1994) who were the dominant force in British Ice hockey during this period. You are welcome to view the mini HALL OF FAME (pictured) depicting many of the famous teams which is located in the corridor to the left of the foyer just past the SHOP
