The Lausitzer Füchse (literally Lusatian Foxes) is a professional ice hockey team based in Weißwasser, Saxony. They currently play in DEL2,[1] the second level of ice hockey in Germany. Prior to the 2013–14 season they played in the 2nd Bundesliga.

History[edit]

The team was founded already in 1932 but is most significant for its remarkable domination as SG Dynamo Weißwasser in the GDR ice hockey league with over 25 championships. After the German reunification the team could not hold its strength, financial problems and relegations followed.

After the 2006/2007 season the team has won the best-of-seven play-down series against Dresdner Eislöwen with 4-2 and remains in the 2nd Bundesliga while the Eislöwen have to play in the Oberliga in the 2007/2008 season.[2]
