==History==
The Broncos started out as the [[Swift Current Broncos]] in [[Swift Current]], [[Saskatchewan]], but moved to Lethbridge in 1974. The team had been losing money in tiny Swift Current and the new [[ENMAX Centre|Lethbridge Sportsplex]] was beckoning for a team. The Broncos played in Lethbridge for twelve seasons, winning the [[President's Cup (WHL)|President's Cup]] in [[1982–83 WHL season|1982–83]]. In the mid 1980s, the team came up for sale, and despite a large and loyal fanbase, the Broncos were bought by interests in Swift Current and moved back to their original home. Lethbridge was without WHL hockey for only one season however, as the [[Calgary Wranglers]] moved to the city, becoming the [[Lethbridge Hurricanes]] in 1987.
