Any team play each of the other teams in their league a total of four times; twice home, twice away.

At the end of the regular season, the top 4 from each division enter the playoffs, the quarter finals of which are over two legs. The semi finals are a single match between teams from the same division, and the champions are decided by a single final.

Relegation is decided by two games between top of league two and bottom of league one for each division; winner goes up, loser goes down.

There is also an ENIHL cup with two groups of five teams who play each other team twice. The winners of the two groups play each other in two final games.

  • from 1996 to 2012: ENIHL
  • from 2012 to present: National Ice Hockey League (UK)

The ENIHL was formed in 1996.

The English National Ice Hockey League (ENIHL) is an amateur ice hockey league below the English Premier Ice Hockey League which is administered by the English Ice Hockey Association. It was announced on May 17, 2012, that as the league now includes several teams from Scotland and Wales as well as England, it will be renamed the National Ice Hockey League from season 2012/13.[1]
The league is split into two conferences, north and south. The league is now the third tier in ice hockey after the demise of the British National League.
The league has now been further split for 2008/2009 with 2 divisions in both the north and south with promotion/relegation between the two divisions.

In April 2007, the EIHA lowered the upper age limit within the junior leagues, abolishing the under 19 age limit to become under 18. Due to the large gap from junior level to the EPIHL, many teams were forced to enter a reserve team into the ENIHL. This increased the size of the league from 22 teams through to 30 teams for the 2007/2008 season

Later in the 2007 off-season, the EIHA suggested introducing an under 25 age limit across the league. However, this age limit was removed within weeks in favour of a drive towards developing players.

Re-vamp of UK hockey

From next season the second tier of UK hockey will be the National Ice Hockey League. This was originally the third tier of hockey but the old English Premier League has had to be re-structured and it was felt that the best thing to do would be to invite the current clubs in that league to join the NIHL.
