About the league

The Empire 8 can trace its beginnings back to 1964 with the founding of the Independent College Athletic Conference (ICAC). At this time, the conference was made up of Alfred University, Clarkson University, Hobart College, Rensselaer, St. Lawrence University, and Union College. After Union left the league, Ithaca College and RIT joined the ICAC.

In 1991, the ICAC regrouped to become the Empire Athletic Association (EAA). Hobart/William Smith, RPI, and St. Lawrence left in 1993, to be replaced by Elmira College, Nazareth College, and Utica College. Alfred University and St. John Fisher College joined the league in 1998.

The EAA became the Empire 8 in 1999, hosting 13 sports.

Stevens Institute of Technology will join the Empire 8 as a full member in 2007 and as a field hockey member beginning in 2006. The conference will seek a tenth member to even out the field.

The E8 sponsors intercollegiate athletic competition in men's baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, women's field hockey, men's football, men's golf, men's and women's lacrosse, men's and women’s soccer, women's softball, men's and women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's track and field, and women's volleyball.
