Ice Hockey Club

Founded in 1885, The Oxford University Ice Hockey Club (OUIHC) is recognised by the International Ice Hockey Federation as the second oldest club in the history of the sport. In recognition of the club’s tradition of excellence, its jersey hangs proudly in the Ice Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Canada.

In addition to competing in the top checking and non-checking divisions of the British Universities Ice Hockey Association, the OUIHC Men’s and Women's Blues teams also embark on tours and camps around Europe to play teams abroad.

The OUIHC has established a permanent endowment fund which, in addition to sponsorship and commercial income, will help support the ongoing development of the club, whilst reducing the financial barrier to participation for its members – both male and female.

The Fund is managed by Oxford University Endowment Management, and the net income is used to support the club, which includes, but is not limited to, essential training and coaching costs, tours and camps, facilities and equipment, and logistic and travel expenditure, for all our teams.

One-off or recurring gifts of all sizes will help to secure the future of ice hockey at Oxford. Thank you, in advance, for your support.

Women's Blues 2019 Varsity Match - Courchevel, France

Donations go directly to subsidising the Varsity Match trip to Courchevel for the Oxford Women's Blues to subsidise player expenses, ensuring that all players can participate, regardless of finances.

A surplus of funds will be used for the OUIHC Women's ice hockey programme only, the primary aim of which is to reduce the financial barrier for female participation in the sport.
