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.

Flyers Alumni 12 Days of Giving

During the 2019 holiday season, we are starting what we hope will become an annual tradition: a Flyers Alumni Association version of the 12 Days of Giving. Each day for 12 days, the Alumni will donate money and/or volunteer time to Delaware Valley charities, community organizations and/or individuals/families in need during the holiday season. Visit our social media pages on Twitter and Facebook and see the Community section of our website for daily updates on where we've been and where we'll be going next.
