Tornado Luxembourg is an ice hockey team in Luxembourg City. The team plays in FFHG Division 3, however they are not eligible for the championship because they are a foreign team.

History[edit | edit source]

Tornado Luxembourg debuted in the 1987-88 season, and played in the Rheinland-Palatinat Liga, a German regional league, which they won. They then finished second in the qualification round for the Regionalliga Mitte Group, and thus qualified for the 1988-89 season. They only played in the Regionalliga for the 88-89 season, as they finished in eighth place in their group. They then played in the Rheinland-Palatinat Liga until 2005, when they joined the FFHG Division 3, the fourth level of French ice hockey.

In Luxembourg, the club was won ten national championships (seven in a row from 1996-2003), and six Luxembourg Cups, in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2003, and 2007.

Their president, Monique Scheier, is also part of the organization committee of the International Ice Hockey Federation

For the 2009-10 season, the team had 26 players, including two national team players, Robert Beran and Benny Welter. Their goaltender was Gilles Mangen.

With there being so few ice hockey players in Luxembourg, there are generally a number of players from Tornado on the national team. Eight players from Tornado Luxembourg played for the national team in 2009.
