Exciting Matches in an Icy Environment: The 31. EUC is here

At the traditional Ice-Hockey Uni-Cup (EUC), every year the student bodies of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Medicine compete on the ice and deliver an ice cold competition before over 3000 spectators in the 100,5 Arena. The yearly cult event is always highly popular and tickets are correspondingly quickly sold out.


On December 6, the Tivoli ice sports hall will again be shaking, as it is when the Aachen Steelers from the Mechanical Engineering student body, the ET Lions from the Electrical Engineering student body and the Medical Strikers from the Medicine student body clash in epic duels on the ice. In order to keep the title and be able to carry on calling the “ThyssenKrupp”-Trophy their own, the Medical Strikers will have to hold their own against the ET Lions and Aachen Steelers. That won’t be easy, as the trophy is highly coveted by all student bodies.

Since as early as the end of October, the teams have been hard at work training for the event, whereby the focus has been on skating skills as well as stick control. The EUC stands for a unique and incomparable atmosphere and nobody wants to miss this cult event. The event will be opened, as is tradition, by the ice hockey team of RWTH Aachen University, the Ice Emperors RWTH/FH Aachen, who this year will be competing against Akademischer Eishockey-Club Zürich (AEC Zürich) of ETH Zürich.
