The English Premier Ice Hockey League commonly abbreviated to EPIHL, is a senior Ice Hockey league in England, and is run and administered by the English Ice Hockey Association. The league currently consists of 10 teams, and is generally considered to be the second tier league below the Elite Ice Hockey League although there is no promotion or relegation between the two.

The league was founded in 1997 although it is only since the 2005–06 season that it has fitted in as the second tier, as previously the now disbanded British National League filled this position; and in-fact many previous BNL teams now play in the EPIHL.
