The Ice Hockey Superleague (known as the Sekonda Ice Hockey Superleague from 1998–99 due to sponsorship rights) was the top-level professional ice hockey league in the United Kingdom between 1996 and 2003, replacing the Premier Division of the British Hockey League. It was disbanded after the 2002-2003 season and replaced by the Elite Ice Hockey League. Although there was no promotion and relegation during this period, some teams transferred between the Superleague and the British National League, considered the second-tier of British ice hockey.
Sekonda Ice Hockey SuperleagueEdit
During the years the league was sponsored by Sekonda (1998–2002), the man of the match awards were presented with a watch. Each month one of the man of the match winners would be selected as the Sekonda Face to Watch. At the end of each season the Sekonda Superleague Player of the Year would be selected from the Sekonda Face to Watch winners by a panel of journalists — except for the season 2001–02 when Sekonda's sponsorship finished part way through the season.
