The Dundee Stars, currently stylised as Dundee 'CCS' Stars due to a title sponsorship deal with Contract Cleaning Services, are a professional ice hockey team based in the Scottish city of Dundee. They were formed in 2001 and play their home games at the Dundee Ice Arena, situated off the city's main Kingsway dual carriageway.
Founded in 2001, the Dundee Stars won the Findus British National League (FBNL) and the Playoffs in their first season (2001–02) and then ranked 2nd in the FBNL, top their playoff group and reached the semi-finals of the challenge cup the following season. Stars' third season was a disappointment compared to the previous two, with a low league position and a place in the final of the Capital Cup.
Season 04-05 was disappointing for all three Scottish teams in the BNL. The National Cup, the Keyline Cup and the Challenge Cup were no better. However, the Stars won the Playoffs and also fared well in the Caledonia Cup.
Before the 05-06 season, the BNL folded as the Edinburgh Capitals were accepted into the Elite League but Stars refused to go if Fife Flyers were not allowed to join them. Fife's ice rink did not meet the Elite League standards and Flyers and Stars were left with no other option than to play in the Scottish National League (SNL) and so had to release all of their imported players. Fife won the SNL with Stars 3 points behind in 2nd. Flyers also won the Autumn Cup, the Northern League and the SNL Playoffs.
Season 06-07 introduced the NHL style Zero Tolerance rules and the one import rule with the intent of making the SNL a more skillful league. The Stars have relied heavily on their junior development with many Under 19s and some Under 16s "playing up" as well as managing to secure the services of two of the "old" favourites, Jeff Marshall (Canada) and Patric Lochi (Italy).
