The Die Players Liga (DPL) is the premier hobby league of Germany, with five divisions for ice hockey and three divisions for inline. There are thirty-two competitive teams from various levels of skill and talent. The DPL is sponsored by the Mannheim Adlers (pro team), Top-on-Ice, and Hooter restaurants.
The KMC Eagles are proud supporters of our community, providing tons of volunteer manhours to the KMC 5/6, USO, ROSC, and RESA organizations.
