History[edit]

Eindhoven ice hockey began in earnest in the 1970s with the construction of a hockey arena. Eindhoven Kemphanen (Kemphanen, "fighting roosters" in English, is a play on words using the name of the "Kempen" region) first played in the Eredivisie in 1981-82 and played intermittently in the Eredivisie in the 1980s and 1990s. The highlight of this period was winning the Netherlands cup competition in 1986. The team returned to the Eredivisie in 2008-09 for the first time since 1996-97.
