Ice hockey, a local passion
Did you know that the city of Gap is particularly well known in the world of field hockey? The Rapaces de Gap team is the city's number one sports team and is a favorite among fans.
Created in 1937, the club started playing in the French championship in 1945. At the time, it was playing in the second series. It is during the 1962-1963 season that the team enters for the first time in 1st series (elite division). Since then, the reputation of our blue team has not stopped growing. The team is currently playing in the Magnus League, the highest level in France.
Following the reconstruction of the old ice rink named Brown-Ferrand between 2010 and 2012, the Alp'Arena ice stadium now has 2800 seats in the stands. The Rapaces de Gap play in this new arena since the 2012-2013 season.
