Orlando Solar Bears
The Orlando Solar Bears are an East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) minor hockey team based in Orlando, Florida. The team was founded in 2011 with its name and colors based on the original Orlando Solar Bears who played in the International Hockey League from 1995 to 2001. Along with the Florida Everblades, the Solar Bears are one of only two ECHL franchises in Florida. They join the Greenville Road Warriors, the Florida Everblades, The Gwinnett Gladiators, and the South Carolina Stingrays to form the South Division of the ECHL.
Orlando Solar Bears games are community oriented and run from October to April. Not only are they a great sports experience for visitors to the city, but they also unite locals in Orlando. Special promotions are avialable throughout the year at hockey games, including networking nights, charity drives, and themed games. The indoor ice rink is a desireable location for watching an exhilirating game during those unbearably hot days, and activities and entertainment during the game make it fun for the entire family.
The head coach for the Orlando Solar Bears is Vince Williams, who is a former Solar Bears defenseman. The team is an ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Minnesota Wild and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Single game or season tickets can be purchased online or at the Amway box office.
The Orlando Solar Bears play at the Amway Center in Downtown Orlando, with offices at the RDV Sportsplex Ice Den. For more info on the Amway Center, view their profile page.
