The Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies were an ECHL hockey team in Atlantic City, New Jersey from 2001 to 2005. The team's venue was the historic Boardwalk Hall, which seats 6,979.
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 until the end of the 2014–15 season. For the 2015–16 season the franchise will relocate again to Glens Falls, New York to play as the Adirondack Thunder.
