The Edinburgh Capitals were a Scottish ice hockey club, playing in the UK-wide Elite Ice Hockey League. They were based in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh. The team played at the Murrayfield Ice Rink, close to Murrayfield Rugby stadium.
The team were owned by Scott Neil – who saved ice hockey in Edinburgh after the collapse of the Murrayfield Racers and Murrayfield Royals – and local businessman, Matthew Tailford and George Ferdinando. In April 2018, a consortium led by David Hand (brother of ex-racer Tony) won the contract for ice time at Murrayfield. The Racers applied to join the EIHL and take the Capitals’ place but were rejected, plunging the future of top level ice hockey in the city in jeopardy.
