HistoryEdit

Bandy era in České BudějoviceEdit

The long history started in 1911, when group of young Gymnasium students devised a plan to build a bandy team. Their first hockey rings were situated exactly where Malše river merges into Vltava river. Obviously, it could happened only in winter, when the temperature was low and ice crust was solid enough to play safety. Since 1912 the team started to play under coach, manager, player and administrator Dr. Zdeněk Černý. They managed to play many matches till beginning of World War I. This world conflict surely meant deceleration of expansion in bandy. First World War victims were also players from České Budějovice, such Áda Schrabal, Karel Selinka, Jan Vrkoč and Leo Feigl. On December 3, 1921 spectators in town of Strakonice could see the first match in real ice (Canadian) hockey between teams SK České Budějovice and Strakonice.

History of the clubEdit

On 10 of January 1928 AC Stadion were founded by merging two clubs in the town - Viktoria and Slovan. The history of national elite ice hockey league begins in 1936-37. AC Stadion České Budějovice became a vital part of the league and produced many international players. First season they finished third after LTC Praha and AC Sparta Praha. The league included 8 teams and each team played 7 matches. In 1950/51 season the club started the decade with success with the Czechoslovak ice hockey league title, which is still the one and only in the club history. The fact is, that strongest teams from Prague lost their best players by ban thanks nonsensical allegations from communists. Since then to 1958/59 season they had mixed success in the league and their best was third place in 1952/53 season. In 1957/58 they avoided relegation finishing 10th. Next season wasn't any better and club relegated into 2. League which they managed to win and did get back to Czechoslovak league year after.
