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 nationally and internationally with membership consisting of 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 Snider Hockey, St. John’s Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes South Jersey and Junior Achievement of Delaware.
In 2019, the Association launched a new program called the 12 Days of Christmas Season Giving. Twelve different charity, community and individual/family recipients in need were selected and presented with donations. Two additional recipients were also selected, making it 14 in total. The program returned in 2020, making it a new annual tradition.
