Pecoma Grizzlies Groningen is the professional ice hockey team of Groningen, The Netherlands. They play in the Dutch Eredivisie, the highest-level hockey division in the Netherlands. Home games are played at the Sportcentrum Kardinge.

HistoryEdit

Founded on December 23, 1969 as Groninger IJshockey Stichting (GIJS), the team played in the lower divisions until 1976, when it began competing in the Eredivisie. It won its first and only Eredivisie championship in the 1985-86 season, with 7 wins and 1 loss in the playoffs.

Failure to attract a major sponsor forced the team out of the Eredivisie from 1988 until 2007. In 2007-2008, after winning two straight championships in the eerste divisie (the top amateur division), the team re-entered the Eredivisie.
