Romijnders Dar Devils Nijmegen is the professional ice hockey team of Nijmegen, The Netherlands. They play in the Dutch Eredivisie, the highest-level hockey division in the Netherlands. Home games are played at the Triavium.


Ice hockey in Nijmegen began in 1968, with the Nijmegen Tigers winning its first national championship in 1984. At the end of the 1980s, several players moved to Rotterdam to join the short-lived Rotterdam Panda's. Beginning in the early 1990s, financial difficulties hurt the Nijmegen Tigers, forcing the team to dissolve and reform in 1994. In 2003, the Tigers went bankrupt. The Nijmegen Emperors joined the Eredivisie in 2004, winning the national championship in 2006. However, the Emperors also went bankrupt in 2006. In 2007, the Devils joined the league with a title sponsor.
