EHC Biel-Bienne, a team with two names given the town’s location on the border between Germanophone and Francophone Switzerland, were established in 1939 and play out of the Tissot Arena, a nod to the city’s long tradition of being the centre of Swiss watchmaking.
After winning three National League A titles in six years between 1978 and 1983, EHC Biel-Bienne spent a significant number of years in Switzerland's second tier, only returning to the top level of Swiss hockey in 2008/09. They struggled at the start, but recent years have seen a rise in confidence and form. They finished third in the regular season and made it all the way to the semi-finals in 2017/18.
Their form carried on into 2018/19 as they repeated their semi-final appearance and finished fourth in the regular season, and followed that up with a fifth-place finish in 2019/20. Both finishes earned them their first two trips to the Champions Hockey League. In their first appearance, they nearly made it to the Semi-Finals but fell in overtime to the eventual-champion Frölunda Indians in heartbreaking fashion.
