History of the Flyers
Flyers chairman Ed Snider brought hockey back to Philadelphia in 1967 and a love affair between city and team was born. One of six expansion teams, the Flyers not only won their division in their first season, but eventually became the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup in 1974.
The Flyers Alumni Association, originally named the Philadelphia Legends, was created in 1984 and continues to grow. Alumni can be found playing games around the world and participating in other charitable projects throughout the year.
Thank you to our wonderful alumni and sponsors for making the 2013 Flyers Alumni Golf Invitational a huge success. The event was held on July 8, 2013 at The Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown, PA. Players from over four decades spent the day golfing and mingling to raise money for local charities. Proceeds from the event benefit BLOCS (Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools), Flyers Charities, and the Philadelphia Flyers Alumni Association.
