HistoryEdit

Schwenningen originally competed in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) from 1994–95 until the 2002–03 season when they lost their license due to insolvency proceedings. From 2003 until 2013, they competed in the 2nd Bundesliga, where they were runner-up in the 2010, 2011 and 2013 seasons.

After 10 seasons in absentia from the DEL, the Wild Wings were returned to Germany's top league when they purchased the DEL license of the financially stricken Hannover Scorpions on 14 June 2013.[2] They began competing from the 2013–14 season.
