Flyers Alumni History

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 (a 501(c)(3) organization) was originally named the Philadelphia Legends. The Association was created in 1984 and continues to grow with membership consisting of national and global former Philadelphia Flyers players.  The Alumni can be found playing games around the world and participating in other charitable projects throughout the year. 

 

Through the years, the Flyers Alumni Association has maintained a tradition of giving back to the Delaware Valley community. Charities and community organizations that have been supported in the past include St. John's Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes South Jersey and Junior Achievement of Delaware.

2018 Flyers Alumni Golf Raises $212K

The fifth annual CDW Flyers Alumni Golf Invitational raised $212,000 for the Delaware Valley community. On Oct. 16, 2018, the Flyers Alumni Association presented a check for $175,000 to the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation and a $37,000 check to BLOCS. As always, none of this would be possible without our wonderful sponsors and participating golfers. Thank you, as well, to the attending Flyers Alumni at this year's event.
