UAB Hockey Club Kicks Off Inaugural Season


The newly assembled ice hockey club team at UAB will soon host the first home game of their first full season (woohoo!).

The hockey club is the university’s first ever collegiate hockey team for the city of Birmingham.

As of now, the UAB hockey club is not affiliated with the American Collegiate Hockey Association, the governing body of club and varsity college ice hockey akin to the NCAA. However, the club plans to eventually become a part of the ACHA.

Although it’s the inaugural season for the hockey club, it won’t be their first game. In April of this year, UAB played their first game against Mississippi State and won 11-10. The team is fresh off of a game against Auburn (13-1, Auburn), but will have the home advantage for the next three match-ups.

UAB will host all home games at the Pelham Civic Complex, with the next home appearance being a two-game series against LSU on October 7th & 8th.

Oh, and ALL HOME GAMES – except for the game against the University of Alabama – ARE FREE! #FreezeUAB!
