The History of The Old Ellicott Cup
We're proud to be able to bring you the Old Ellicott Cup, which is just one of the many events that make up our region's rich history of bubble hockey. Our mission is to preserve the game and bring it forward for future generations. We hope that, by doing so, we can help keep all of our cities connected in a way that goes beyond just the ice.
No talk of The Old Ellicott Cup can begin without the discussion of the unique location of the home of its inaugural event, B&O Railroad Station Museum.
"The Baltimore and Ohio Ellicott City Station Museum in Ellicott City, Maryland, is the oldest remaining passenger train station in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. It was built in 1830 as the terminus of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad line from Baltimore to the town then called Ellicott's Mills, and a facility to service steam locomotives at the end of the 13-mile (21 km) run. The station, a National Historic Landmark, is now used as a museum." - Wikipedia
The Old Ellicott Cup has a short history, but a great one. From our humble beginnings as a basement bubble hockey tournament to representing the DMV proudly in other regional tournaments, we've learned one thing for sure: The passion for playing and watching bubble hockey runs deep in this region.
The Old Ellicott Cup is a celebration of that passion and the chance for players from all over the DMV to compete for some serious bragging rights. We're proud to be the premier bubble hockey tournament in this region, and we look forward to growing even more in 2023!
