EC Kassel Huskies at a glance

Since the 2016/17 season, WINGAS is the proud co-sponsor of the DEL2 club EC Kassel Huskies. Ice hockey is deeply rooted in the history and social life of the town of Kassel and is regarded as the region’s sporting “flagship”. Since the club’s founding in 1977, its many fans have followed the home matches in Kassel’s Ice Arena.

The Kassel Huskies are the founding members of the German Ice Hockey league (DEL) in which they proved themselves between 1994 and 2005. The team celebrated its most notable win in 1997 as German Vice Champion and, in 2004, as German Runner’s Up Cup winner. In the same year, the youth team of the Kassel Huskies won the championships.

Challenging years followed in which the club fell into the DEL2 due to a lack of sporting success. Here, however, the Huskies were able to maintain their place at the top thanks to their consistently strong performance. In the 2008/09 season they succeeded in climbing to the DEL again. After professional playing was temporarily stopped in 2010 for financial reasons, the Kassel Huskies have again been playing in the DEL2 since the 2014/15 season where they won the championship title in the 2015/16 season.
