"We want to keep on playing for as long as possible"
Johan Pennerborn, Head Coach of Färjestad Karlstad
The 2020/21 season will mark Färjestad Karlstad's fifth appearance in the Champions Hockey League.
In their four previous attempts, Färjestad finally reached the Round of 16 last season, where they fell to the eventual-champion Frölunda Indians after squandering a five-goal lead on aggregate. However, with the momentum of some domestic silverware, they’ll be hoping for a much better outing this season.
The side from Karlstad has the most successful track record in the history of the Swedish top league, the SHL (former Elitserien). Färjestad has played in all 39 seasons since the league debuted in 1975 and is top-ranked in the table that sums up all the records. Färjestad have played in 19 championship finals – of which eight have been since 2001 – and have won the title nine times.
The club was founded in 1932, just a slap shot away from Löfbergs Arena, the 8,500-seat arena built in 2001 where the team currently plays. The ice rink inside the arena is situated in the exact same spot where the club's first rink was built in 1957.
