The Manchester Metros are the ice and inline hockey teams for Manchester Universities, including the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University.
The ice hockey section has teams competing in Division 2 Central and Division 3 North of the British Universities Ice Hockey Association cup competition. The squads train together at the Altrincham Ice Dome and play their league games at Deeside Ice Rink.
The Metros were formed as a roller hockey team in 2001 by a group of students studying at UMIST and the Victoria University of Manchester (commonly known as Manchester University until 2004). They first competed in the University roller hockey national championships in the 2002-2003 academic year, finishing 4th overall. For the 2003-2004 season the team entered the NIHL, allowing them to play regular matches throughout the year.
In 2004 the club had their debut as an ice hockey team in the BUIHA cup competition. They have continued to field a team in the National Inline Hockey League (NIHL) which is based in Broughton near Salford.
In their 08/09 season they won BUIHA Division 2 Central in convincing fashion going undefeated throughout. They also won the Tier II National Championship.
