Hockey in the city of Mannheim was first established in 1938, when Mannheimer ERC (MERC) first took the ice. MERC won their first German championship in 1980. In 1994 Adler Mannheim was founded from MERC and joined Germany’s newly founded professional league, the DEL, the same year. Die Adler quickly became a success, both on and off the ice, and have collected eight championships, most recently in 2019, and won Germany’s “Pokal-Cup” twice.
Since 2005, the club has played all its home games in front of a loyal fan base inside the SAP Arena, with a seating capacity of 13,600. Along with their loyal fans, the club have earned the nickname "Hockey town" for the city of Mannheim.
Die Adler, as they are most often referred to, have featured in five Champions Hockey Seasons. They have finished top of their Group three times, but despite being one of the strongest teams in the DEL, they have only made it as far as the Round of 16 in the competition.
