The Straubing Tigers are a German ice hockey club located in the Bavarian town of Straubing.
Despite never winning the DEL championship, the club have featured in Germany’s top league for over fifteen consecutive seasons and have made it to the playoff semi-finals and quarter-finals numerous times.
They play their games in the Eisstadion am Pulverturm which has a capacity of over 5,500. Their club colours are blue and white.
Max Pielmaier is considered the founder of ice hockey in Straubing. The then 14-year-old organized a youth team together with his friends in 1941, playing numerous games throughout and after the second world war.
In 1947, the Straubing players joined TSV 1861 Straubing and throughout the next fifty years the club transitioned into becoming a fully professional sporting organisation and gradually made its way up into the higher tiers of German ice hockey.
The club first qualified for the DEL in 2006 and have remained there ever since.
They enter their first-ever season of the Champions Hockey League after a third-placed regular season finish in the DEL, their third consecutive top four finish.
