HistoryEdit

In 2000, construction began on the SBC Center, located next to the Freeman Coliseum, home of the Central Hockey League's San Antonio Iguanas.

The Center was built primarily for the San Antonio Spurs who were unhappy with the Alamodome. Bexar County granted the Spurs booking rights, meaning the team had full control over their schedule as well as the schedules of all other non-NBA sporting events at the rechristened AT&T Center. The Spurs initiated a hostile buy-out of the Iguanas. The Iguanas' ownership refused to sell, and suspended operations instead.

Partnering with the Florida Panthers, the Spurs brought a new hockey team to San Antonio. Initially unveiled as the "Stampede", the Spurs were notified that the name was owned by another party. The team was renamed the "Rampage".

On June 30, 2005 Spurs Sports & Entertainment purchased the Florida Panthers portion of Rampage franchise, assuming sole ownership of AHL club. They also entered a multi-year affiliation agreement with Phoenix Coyotes. [1]

On September 7, 2006 The Rampage unveiled their new uniforms with the official colors now being black, white and silver (the same motif used by the Spurs, as well as other Spurs-owned teams). While the primary and secondary logos remain the same, the crest of the jerseys will now reflect just the bull’s head giving it a more sleek look.

On 11 April 2007, the Coyotes announced that it had fired Rampage general manager Laurence Gilman, who had been with the Coyotes organization for 13 years.

On November 23, 2009, the Phoenix Coyotes fired Greg Ireland. He was replaced by assistant coach Ray Edwards; Mike Pelino was named assistant coach. Ray Edwards was officially named head coach of the San Antonio Rampage prior to the 2010-2011 season.

Their main rivals are the Texas Stars (located up Interstate 35 near Austin) and the Houston Aeros (located down Interstate 10).

After the 2010–11 AHL season, the Coyotes came to an agreement with the Portland Pirates to be their new AHL affiliate, leaving San Antonio without an affiliate. On June 29, 2011, San Antonio officially became Florida's top affiliate for a second time.

The market was previously served by:

  • San Antonio Iguanas of the CHL (1994–2002)
  • San Antonio Dragons of the IHL (1996–1998)
