In 2001, the franchise played its inaugural season in Atlantic City after relocating from Birmingham, Alabama, where it was known as the Birmingham Bulls. In 2003, the team won the Kelly Cup, beating the Columbia Inferno in the finals.
Even though the Bullies found success on the ice, the team's attendance was poor. In its championship season, attendance averaged slightly above 3,000 per game. During the 2005 season, the franchise was sold to an ownership group from Stockton, California. The team moved and was renamed the Stockton Thunder for the 2005–06 season and since.
