The spusu Vienna Capitals are an Austrian ice hockey team from Vienna founded in 2001 and play in the Erste Bank Ice Hockey League . The “Caps” home games are played in the Erste Bank Arena . In the 2004/05 season, the Vienna Capitals won their first championship title in the best-of-seven series against the EC KAC and were able to repeat this success in 2017.
First years in the Bundesliga
The Vienna Capitals took part in the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga for the first time in the 2001/02 season and reached the playoffs. With good performances, they established themselves in the middle of the table and reached fourth place at the end of the basic round. In the quarter-finals they sweeped the Graz 99ers with 4-0 victories and met the EHC Linz in the semi-finals . This series lost the Capitals in four games and said goodbye to the season.
Some changes were made to the squad for the following season, but the team failed to find consistent performances and ended the regular season in penultimate place in the table. Since all teams were qualified for the playoffs this season, the Capitals met defending champions EC VSV in the quarter-finals and lost the series with 2: 3 wins. The 2003/04 season ended one point behind in fourth place in fifth place. Since only the first four teams were qualified for the playoffs, the season for the Capitals was over for the first time after the regular season.
The first championship title
Due to the unsatisfactory performance in the 2003/04 season, the squad was revised again. The most important change was the commitment of the DEL legionnaire Frédéric Chabot for the position of goalkeeper. Although the team did not start the season optimally, coach Jim Boni managed to gradually form a tight-knit unit out of the team. From the halfway point of the basic round, the Viennese put on a winning streak and finished the basic round with eight points ahead of the runner-up, the EC KAC , in first place. In the semi-finals, the capital city team defeated the EC VSV in four games and met the EC KAC in the final. The respective away team won the first six matches of the final series, until Jim Boni picked up a trick for the decisive seventh game. The players spent the entire day like in an away game and ended up playing in the away addresses. The Capitals won the seventh final game 6-2 and won the first championship title in their history.
The years after that
There were some changes for the following season. Chabot left the team and was replaced by Jeff Maund . The Caps started the season a bit awkwardly and the situation was further complicated by Maund's request to terminate his contract. As a result, Walter Bartholomäus took over his position and also performed well. At the end of the regular season, the team made it into the playoffs by one point. In the semifinals, the Viennese lost to EC Red Bull Salzburg with 1: 4 wins . This one victory of the Capitals had been achieved at the green table. Since Salzburg had not properly registered the legionnaire Patrick Thoresen , the third game in the series (which Salzburg won 6: 3) was penalized 5: 0 in favor of the Capitals.
The squad problem
Due to the failures of the past few years, the club's board had become aware of a decisive disadvantage that the Capitals had compared to other Bundesliga teams: the lack of young talent. Since, on the one hand, the infrastructure of the City of Vienna did not allow for permanent training and on the other hand , there were no longer any cooperation partners after the end of the EHC Team Vienna , Capitals President Schmid took a new approach. From the 2007/08 season, the existing Legionnaires' regulation, which allowed every EBEL team to sign five transfer card players, was overturned. The so-called point rule came as a replacement for this. With the changed regulation, the squad was completely renewed.
With Jean-François Labbé an experienced goalkeeper has been obliged to come with Dan Bjornlie and Peter Casparsson excellent defender. In the storm, with Marcel and David Rodman and Aaron Fox, a complete line of strikers was signed from HK Jesenice . Kelly Fairchild and Pascal Rhéaume also strengthened the team, so that the Capitals started the season with a total of ten legionaries and four naturalized players, so-called Austros. After six missions, Labbé was injured and was out for the rest of the season. The club management was looking for a suitable replacement. After Günther Hell did not meet the expectations, the Capitals struck gold with Sébastien Charpentier . However, he was also injured in the current season and was temporarily replaced by Kelly Guard .
At the end of the regular round, the Viennese finished second on points with the leading Linzers. In the second round, a new problem emerged: due to the large number of transfer card players who each consumed four of the contingent, which was limited to sixty points, the top of the squad was very thin, so that at times only two and a half lines had to be played. After HC Innsbruck was defeated in four games in the quarter-finals , the team lost all games in the semi-finals against eventual champions Salzburg.
After this season, Capitals President Hans Schmid also tried to abolish the point rule in order to be able to sign players completely freely in the future. This sparked heated discussions among the clubs, in which the EU labor law was argued, which allows every ice hockey player the free choice of job, which would make any regulation illegal. This discussion continues to this day, but has so far not brought about any changes to the system.
For the 2008/09 season , the expenses for the squad were reduced. Through some legionnaires in the form of the trio Patrick Lebeau , Juha Riihijärvi and Benoit Gratton , the Viennese played again for the title. The basic round ended in second place behind the EC KAC. In the quarterfinals, the team met the Graz 99ers . After the Capitals led with 3-1 victories, the Grazers managed to equalize. In the seventh game of the series, a 5-1 win secured the semi-finals. There, the Viennese met EC Red Bull Salzburg and lost the series in five games.
The following two seasons were largely the same. Both times the Viennese showed good performances in the main round and finished it in third place, but both play-offs also ended again in the semi-finals against EC Red Bull Salzburg. While Gratton and François Fortier , who was added in 2010, established themselves as top players in the league, young Viennese players were gradually brought back to the club or integrated into the fighting team from the forced offspring. At the end of the 2010/11 season , Kevin Gaudet ended his engagement with the Viennese and was replaced by the Swede Tommy Samuelsson .
In preparation for the following season, the Capitals took part for the first time in the European Trophy 2011 , an invitation tournament made up of top European teams. The home games in the European Trophy were played for the first time in the Albert Schultz ice rink, which has been expanded to 7,000 seats . The 2011/12 championship was disappointing for Vienna Capitals and the high expectations could not be met by far. This was due, among other things, to the numerous wrong purchases, the serious injury to the crowd favorite Rafael Rotter and the surprising end of Harald Ofner's career . After the basic round, the Viennese took only eighth place, which resulted in a step into the qualifying round. Nevertheless, coach Tommy Samuelsson was held on, who, thanks to a runaway win on the last day of the qualifying round, led the capitals into the play-off . There the Capitals failed in the quarterfinals in seven games against the later champions from Linz . The Capitals started the 2012/13 season with a reinforced squad (including Corey Potter , Adrian Veideman , Jamie Fraser and Matt Zaba ) . The Viennese won the regular round with 61 points and retained their position even after the subsequent placement round. Orli Znojmo was defeated in the play-off quarter-finals before a victory against EC Red Bull Salzburg in the semi-finals . Only in the final, the Viennese were defeated with a sweep by the EC KAC . The Klagenfurters achieved the first sweep in a final since the EBEL was founded and the first final sweep in Austrian league history at a distance of best-of-seven. At the same time, the club won the thirtieth ÖEHL championship title in the club's history.
Before the 2013-14 season , several key players left the club, including Dan Bjornlie and André Lakos . Nevertheless, the Viennese were able to win the main round again, but were beaten by the EC VSV in the quarter-finals . In the 2014/15 season , the Vienna with the new coach started Tom Pokel , which in February 2015 by Jim Boni was replaced. With a fourth place in the main round the play-off could be reached again, where the Capitals reached the final again against Székesfehérvár and the EHC Linz. There they were beaten 4-0 in the series by Salzburg.
In the 2015/16 season , the Capitals finished the main round again in fourth place and again selected the EC VSV as their opponent in the quarter-finals. The team lost 4-1 against Villach.
For the 2016/17 season , Serge Aubin was signed as coach . In addition, Jean-Philippe Lamoureux was brought in as the new goalkeeper from the EC VSV. The Caps kept the championship lead throughout the season and won the regular season and the pick round. As a quarter-final opponent, the Caps decided for HC Innsbruck . With three sweeps against HC Innsbruck, HC Bozen and EC KAC , the caps won the second championship title in history.
Only three players - David Kickert , Collin Bowman and the captain Jonathan Ferland - left the Capitals after the championship title. With Kyle Klubertanz and Jérôme Samson , the Caps signed two very experienced players. After dominating the regular round like last year, the team reached first place on the last match day of the intermediate round and again chose Innsbruck as their quarter-final opponent. After the first three games, as in the previous year, it looked like a sweep for the Viennese. But Innsbruck could just win games 4 and 5, in the sixth game the caps moved into the semifinals. As in the previous year, HC Bozen was waiting there . After winning the first game impressively 4-0, the next four games were lost and the Italians moved into the finals with a 4-1 win in a row and ultimately became champions.
For the 2018/19 season the Viennese club signed a former NHL coach, Dave Cameron . At the start of the season, the Viennese won all of their first twelve games. This winning streak was followed by five defeats until they recovered and were largely on rank 1 of the table. After taking first place after the regular season in each of the previous two years, the caps only achieved second place this season and thus missed early qualification for the Champions Hockey League . However, the qualification for the CHL was fixed with the first place in the pick-round . For the quarter-finals, the Caps chose HC Orli Znojmo , whom they eliminated with 4-1 wins. In the semifinals there was a duel with EC Red Bull Salzburg . The close series, in which neither team managed to take the lead by more than two goals, was won by the Caps 4: 3. In the final, they had to admit defeat to EC KAC 4: 2.
In October 2018, the mobile operator spusu was signed up as the new main and name sponsor. From now on the association is called spusu Vienna Capitals .
At the end of the season it was announced that Dave Cameron will also be on the side of the Caps in the 2019/20 season . Thanks to him, well-known players such as Brenden Kichton , Kyle Baun , Mark Flood and Ryan Zapolski - who played all five games of the US team at the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang - were signed up. Due to the departure of the two top scorers from the previous year, Chris DeSousa and Peter Schneider , the two Austrian regulars Benjamin Nissner and Andreas Nödl , as well as Philippe Lakos , who is now playing for the second team of the Caps , you had a nominally weaker squad than in the in recent years. In addition, audience favorite Rafael Rotter was injured in a preparation game against MAC Budapest and had to sit out until shortly after Christmas. In addition to their own junior staff, Dario Winkler was also loaned from EC Red Bull Salzburg and Henrik Neubauer from Dornbirner EC was signed on . The caps did not start the season as usual from previous years and switched between second and fifth place in the table, also due to the participation of only eleven teams, where one team had to sit out per game day. From the 30th matchday on, they could fix themselves on the second place in the table and were the first pursuer of the EC Red Bull Salzburg. After the Mozartstadt team, the second team was able to qualify early for the play-offs. Due to the coronavirus epidemic , the season was canceled early. So there is no master 2020.

The home of the Vienna Capitals is the 7,022-seat Erste Bank Arena in Vienna's Donaustadt district . In February 2009 it was announced that the capacity of the hall would be expanded to 7,000 spectators. The renovation work began after the 2008/09 season and was completed before the 2011/12 season. In addition, new video screens and VIP boxes were installed in the hall. The roofing of the free ice area should create better conditions for the youngsters. The cost of the renovation is estimated at 40 million euros.

The Vienna Capitals have six registered fan clubs: ICEFIRE , Vienna Hockey Fans , Die Optimisten , Rossauer Caps , Fiaker Caps and S'Eck !! .
Until 2011, the Capitals mascot was Captain Cap , a figure in the shape of a burning ice hockey puck. With Pucky the clown, attempts were unsuccessful to establish a more mobile colleague. In 2011 a cheetah was introduced as a new mascot, which initially remained nameless. Before the 2013/14 season, a survey was started on Facebook, where fans could choose a new name for the mascot. Since then, the mascot has been called Capitano .
