Originating in 1953 in East Germany's Dynamo sports club, the 'polar bears' are Berlin's popular professional ice hockey team. They won the national league 7 times, have also bagged the European Trophy. Their home matches at the Mercedes-Benz-Arena are true familyfests, with a festive, good-humoured atmosphere. The Eisbären finished the 2017-18 regular season second in the table, qualifying once more for the play-offs in which they missed out on the title in dramatic fashion: losing in seven games to Red Bull Munich. The same two teams were doing battle in the play-offs at the time of writing, with the Eisbären down three games to two. There is no more room to move for the Polar Bears.
