HC Olomouc is a Czech ice hockey club from Olomouc that has been participating in the Czech extra league again since 2014 .

Club history

In 1955 the club Spartak Moravia Olomouc was founded, which was able to rise to the 2nd division after only one season. From 1965, the club began under the new name TJ Moravia DS Olomouc . In 1974, the club was relegated from the second division and immediately returned to the same. In 1983 Olomouc won the Czech group (I. ČNL) of the 2nd division, but was clearly defeated in the final for promotion to the first division to the Slovak representative HC Dukla Trenčín . In the next few years the team always belonged to the top of the 2nd division without being able to win it. Olomouc succeeded in 1988/89, but just in this game year a relegation with six participating teams was introduced, of which the two first-placed promoted teams were in the first division. Olomouc landed one point behind Poldi Kladno in third place. Curiously, the same thing happened in the next season 1989/90, with the difference that HC Slovan Bratislava was one point better this time. However, this year the third relegation rank was enough for promotion, as the 1st division was enlarged from 12 to 14 participants. In the first three first division years, Olomouc ended up in eleventh place.

In the founding season of the Czech Extra League , the club, renamed HC Olomouc in 1992, caused a surprise when it won the championship title. After 44 games, Olomouc was in seventh place, so you went into the play-offs as an outsider . Sequentially switched the team to Jiří Dopita the HC Ceske Budejovice and HC Kladno made. In the final, HC Pardubice was waiting , which won the first game 3: 2. In the second game, Olomouc turned the tables, won 2-1 and now had two home games ahead of them. Olomouc won the first 5-2, the 2-1 in the fourth game meant winning the championship. HC Olomouc was unable to defend the title and was fifth in the following season and only ninth a year later.

Before 1997/98 the Extraliga license of HC Olomouc was sold to HC Becherovka Karlovy Vary . In place of this, HC Olomouc bought HC Slezan Opava from its first division license and thus belonged again to the second division after seven years in the highest division. In 1999 the first division license was also sold, so that there was no longer a men's team in Olomouc. Two years later, HC Olomouc acquired the second division license of HC Uherské Hradiště and in 2003 HC Olomouc rose to the first division . In 2014 the club returned to the Extraliga after 16 years.
