Fribourg-Gottéron were founded in 1938 as HC Gottéron in the historical city of Fribourg. The club made their way up to the 2nd division of Swiss hoceky at the end of the 1952/53 season where they stayed for several years. In 1980, the club won the 2nd division championship and was promoted into the National League, Switzerland's top flight. This was also when they changed their full club name to Fribourg-Gottéron.
One of their most successful periods was between 1991 and 1994, when Fribourg-Gottéron made it all the way to the championship final three times in a row, finishing runners-up on all three occasions.
They have finished runners-up five times throughout their history, most recently in the 2012/13 season, but have never won the NL championship.
Their newly reconstructed arena, the BCF-Arena, was finished before the start of the 2020/21 NL season and holds nearly 9,000 fans.
Fribourg-Gottéron have participated in the CHL four times. They featured in the inaugural season of 2014/15 season and finished top of their group but were eliminated in the Round of 16. Their second participation the following season was noticeably worse – Fribourg-Gottéron finished bottom of their group and failed to make the Playoffs altogether.
They returned for the 2016/17 season where they once again topped their group. They beat Slovak side HC Košice, Finnish team KalPa Kuopio and Czech club HC Vítkovice in the first three elimination rounds before bowing out to eventual Champions the Frölunda Indians in the Semi-Finals.
In 2021/22 the Swiss club made CHL history becoming the first team to end the Group Stage unbeaten and with a full 18 points.
