  • The Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) is a professional ice hockey league in the United Kingdom. Formed in 2003 following the demise of the Ice Hockey Superleague, it is the highest level of ice hockey competition in the United Kingdom. Initial sponsorship was from Rapid Solicitors. The league currently consists of ten teams, with representation from all four Home Nations – the only league in any sport to do so. In eight completed seasons the league has been won by four different teams. From the 2012–13 Season onwards the league features a northern conference (Gardiner Conference, named after Scottish-born former NHL goalie Charlie Gardiner) featuring Braehead (SCO), Dundee (SCO), Edinburgh (SCO), Fife (SCO) and Manchester Storm (ENG) and a Southern conference (Erhardt Conference, named after 1936 English Olympic Hockey Gold Medalist Carl Erhardt) featuring Belfast (NIR), Cardiff (WAL), Coventry (ENG), Nottingham (ENG) and Sheffield (ENG). The top eight teams in the overall league standings qualify for the Elite League playoffs. The Elite League post-season is considerably shorter than playoff tournaments in North America; in the first round teams play a two-leg game (one home, one away) and the semi-finals and final take place over the course of a single weekend at the National Ice Centre in Nottingham.

  • Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) ist eine professionelle Eishockey-Liga im Vereinigten Königreich. Sie wurde 2003 gegründet und ging aus der Ice Hockey Superleague hervor. Nach anfänglichen Unklarheiten, die durch Schlichtung des Eishockeyweltverbandes geregelt werden konnten, wird die EIHL vom britischen Eishockeyverband Ice Hockey UK anerkannt. Die EIHL gilt als die höchste Spielklasse des britischen Eishockeys, noch über der English Premier Ice Hockey League. Zwischen beiden Ligen gibt es keinen Auf- oder Absteiger. Finanzielle Gegebenheiten lassen das Teilnehmerfeld der EIHL regelmäßig fluktuieren. Wegen ihres Sponsors Bmibaby ist sie auch als Bmibaby Elite League bekannt. (de)

  • Il Campionato britannico di hockey su ghiaccio, meglio noto come Elite Ice Hockey League è una manifestazione professionistica di hockey su ghiaccio del Regno Unito. Nata nel 2003 sulle ceneri della Ice Hockey Superleague, è il massimo campionato britannico in questo sport. Vi partecipano dieci squadre e i vincitori si qualificano per la Champions Hockey League a partire dalla stagione 2009–10. I campioni in carica sono i Belfast Giants. Diverse competizioni operano sotto il cappello della Elite League. Nel 2006–07 la EIHL ne organizzò un totale di quattro: lega, playoff, Challenge Cup e Knockout Cup. La lega è formata da una sola divisione, dove ogni squadra gioca tre partite in casa e tre in trasferta contro tutte le altre. La vittoria vale due punti, uno solo per la sconfitta ai supplementari o agli shootout. I supplementari sono costituiti da cinque minuti di quattro contro quattro con il golden goal. A fine regular season le squadre migliori fanno i play-off per stabilire il campione nazionale. Il numero di squadre ai play-off è cambiato nel tempo: nelle prime due stagioni erano sei, ma nel 2006 li disputarono tutte. Prima della stagione 2006-07 le squadre erano divise in due gironi, e si sfidavano con un round-robin; le prime due si qualificavano per le semifinali. Dal 2006-07 si qualificarono tutte e otto: la prima giocava con l'ottava, la seconda con la settima e così via, con andata e ritorno Le vincenti disputarono una final-four al National Ice Centre di Nottingham.
