BSC Preussen was an ice hockey team in Berlin, Germany. They played between the first and fourth level of German ice hockey from 1983-2005.

History[edit]

Preussen was founded in 1983.[1] They started out playing in the 2nd Bundesliga, and won the league championship in 1988, and were thus promoted to the 1. Bundesliga.[2]

When the Deutsche Eishockey Liga replaced the 1. Bundesliga in 1994, Preussen continued playing there until they were relegated in 2002. Due to financial difficulties, the club dropped all the way to the Regionalliga, the fourth level of German ice hockey. The club's stay in the Regionalliga lasted just one season, as they won the league, and were promoted to the Oberliga.

After the 2004-05 season, Preussen folded.
