The MOL Liga is an international ice hockey league based in Hungary and Romania and sponsored by the Hungarian MOL Group.

The games played between the Hungarian teams count towards the Hungarian National Championship in the OB I bajnokság. The Romanian teams also compete in the Romanian National Championship Liga Naţională.

HistoryEdit

In the first season the league comprised six Hungarian teams and four Romanian teams. HC Csíkszereda went undefeated in the post season to win the first MOL Liga title.

In the second season, the number of teams went down to five Hungarian and two Romanian teams. Following the regular season they decided the winner in a final four system. Budapest Stars met Újpesti TE in the final, after they beat SC Csíkszereda and Dab. Docler respectively. Újpest started the match better, taking the lead just after one and a half minute. However, the events took an U-turn and about two hours later it was the Budapest Stars who lifted the trophy, after winning the match 3–1.
