Comarch Cracovia is the oldest active sport club in Poland. Founded on 13 June 1906 in Krakow, the club has won 11 league championships in ice hockey. The club’s iconic white and red striped design is known all over Poland and is used both by its football and hockey teams.
The first information on hockey in Cracovia dates back to 1912, but it was a dozen or so years later when the first hockey team really emerged. Starting in 1923 it was coached by Józef Lustgarten and consisted of high school students.
The first official game was played on 17 February 1924 which Cracovia won 1-0 against AZS. The team currently plays in the Polish Ekstraliga - the top league in Polish hockey.
Their recent string of success has come under the guidance of Rudolf Roháček, who has now been the team's Head Coach since 2005/05.
The team made Polish hockey's debut in the CHL, and despite losing two games, saw an average home attendance of 6,666 for their matches. A 4-3 series win over Tychy, where they were 3-2 down, saw them qualify for the 2017/18 tournament again.
