The Philadelphia Rebels are an American junior hockey team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The team is based out of the Penn Ice Rink at the Class of 1923 Arena on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania.

The team was previously based in nearby Aston Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The team relocated from Hidalgo, Texas where they were known as the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees where they played for two seasons. Prior to this they were based out of Wenatchee, Washington where they were known as the Wenatchee Wild. The franchise relocated to Hidalgo after unsuccessfully attempting to join the British Columbia Hockey League in 2013.

The team was sold to interests in Pennsylvania after failed attempts to sell the team to someone who would keep the team in Hidalgo. The Killer Bees were official out of existence on June 8, 2015 after an extension of two days failed to produce a sale in Texas.

Aston Rebels Logo On July 24, 2017 the team announced that they were relocating to the Penn Ice Rink at the Class of 1923 Arena on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania and would be renamed the Philadelphia Rebels.
