ABOUT EAGLES HOCKEY CLUB
Eagles HC was formed in 1958 and has since evolved into one of Gibraltar’s premier sporting entities having won
all local hockey competitions at different times throughout the years.
The club has the unique distinction of having been Gibraltar’s first ever representative club side in both the
European Club Championships (Lyon 1972) and the European Cup winners’ Cup (Barcelona 1990). The club prides
itself in its traditional emphasis on youth, which has been instrumental in our first team obtaining a gold medal in
the “C” Division Championship’s, three silver medals in the “B” Division Championship’s and promotion to the “A”
Division in the not-too-distant past. Our men’ sides returned to European competitions back in 2019, after a two-
year absence, and again managed a creditable first place in the Challenge competition held in Malta. The club
continues to enjoy European participation every year a spart of the EHF’s Challenge competitions with our
women’s team currently rebuilding and aiming to play in Europe over the next few years.
Eagles HC is Gibraltar’s biggest hockey club and the only team to field both men’s and women’s sides within the
various local competitions for many years.
The Eagles have always been at the forefront of the development of hockey in Gibraltar, having formed the first
ever men’s reserve side and first junior and ladies’ teams. Furthermore, the club provides nearly a dozen players
to each of the men’s and ladies national sides.
In 2020, and during the difficult COVID Pandemic, we also managed to start-up our youth hockey academy which
now boasts over sixty boys and girls between the ages of six and fourteen and which we hope will secure the
continued success of our club for many years to come.
