Since the 19th century when the sport was believed to have started, there has been a host of teams join the sport. One of the numerous teams in the ice hockey sport is the Aquile F.V.G, which is an Italian team currently playing in the Serie A league, and its home games are played at the PalaVuerich arena. The team is the major ice hockey pro team in Pontebba, which is a municipality in Italy. From the start, the team has been packed with a lot of incredible players that fans have loved to watch and even idolized.

Since the team was created, they have received some impressive achievement, however, the most notable among all is the Serie A Championship, which they won in 2008. In that year, the team was at the peak of their game that they were able to increase their popularity across the country and even outside the country. However, after the championship victory, the team didn't have any notable achievements, and the club's popularity began to dip. In the 2013/2014 playouts against Fassa, the team were relegated to the Serie A2 after losing 4 - 0 in the playout series. With that relegation, it marked the end of their 7-seasons run in the Serie A league, which is also the end of their stay in the Serie A.
Additional Tips and Final Verdict
Àfter an unsuccessful attempt to stay in the Serie A league, the team decided to move to an Austrian Regional League, which is known as Kaertner Liga. Together with Aquile FVG, there is another Italian ice hockey team in the league. In addition to that, the Slovenian Miha Zbonta was named the new Head Coach after the switch. As it stands, the club has ceased to exist after a bad run of years as well as financial problems. However, the team's championship-winning season will never be forgotten in a short time. We can only hope the club comes back to professional ice hockey competition and give a rerun or something better than their the season they won the Serie A league title.
