The Adler Mannheim ('Mannheim Eagles', formerly Mannheimer ERC) are an ice hockey team of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga, the highest ice hockey league in Germany. The team is from Mannheim, a city in the north of Baden-Wurttemberg. Currently, the team plays at SAP Arena, where they moved at the beginning of the 2005/06 season after having played at Eisstadion am Friedrichspark for nearly seven decades from 1938 through 2005.

The first incarnation of the Adler Mannheim were the The Mannheimer ice and roller skating club (MERC: Mannheimer Eislauf und Rollschuhclub), founded on May 19, 1938. After the end of the Second World War, they again began operating in 1948.


The Adler Mannheim were champions of the German Bundesliga, the predecessor of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in 1980. After the Deutsche Eishockey Liga was founded in 1994, the Mannheim Eagles were able to win the championship five more times in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001 and 2007. They also won the German Cup in 2003 and 2007 and were runners-up in 2006.

Mannheimer ERC WildCats (women)

The female contingent of the Mannheimer ERC carries the name "Wild Cats." The most successful period in the WildCats' career was between 1988 and 1994 during which they won three German championships and vice-championships. The Wildcats did not play during the 2005-2006 season after four players terminated their contracts. Therefore, they were forced to temporarily withdraw from the league.
