 History 

Welcome to the history section of the site.  The Flames began competing in 1992-1993 and currently compete out of the 2000 seat Guildford Spectrum in the English Premier League (EPL) made up of 10 English teams.  

EPL teams skate with 4 foreign nationals while the remainder of the roster is British trained.  Prior to EPL membership commencing in 2005, the club competed in the British National League (BNL) from 1996-1997 with teams in England, Scotland and Wales.  BNL rosters were composed of 50% domestically trained players and 50% foreign nationals.

The club won the 1997-1998 Southern conference, BNL and Playoff titles and remained in the BNL for the subsequent 7 seasons until it closed in 2005.  During their BNL tenure, the Flames finished below 3rd place just twice.  In addition to the original championships, the club secured the 1998 Benson & Hedges Plate before repeating the treble haul in 2000-2001 then adding the 2003-2004 playoff crown.  Since joining the EPL, the Flames have won four league championships, four Premier Cups, and a playoff title. 

In addition to sourcing players locally and from a variety of pro leagues around the world, the Flames roster has included former and current (during lockout periods) National Hockey League players, as well as players, both foreign and domestic, with World championship and Olympic International experience.
