HC Bolzano were founded in 1933 as one of the first ice hockey clubs in the northern part of Italy. Starting in the 1947/48 season, Bolzano played in 65 consecutive editions of the Italian Championship until the 2012/13 season. During this period the club reached the finals 34 times, winning the championship 19 times.
In the 2013/14 season, the club switched leagues to participate in the international EBEL league (now known as ICEHL), and won the championship in their debut season. Previously, the club also won the international Alpenliga in 1993/94, and the Six Nations Cup in 1994/95. Additionally, Bolzano participated twice in the IIHF European Hockey League, 12 times in the IIHF European Cup, and three times in the IIHF Continental Cup.
Several NHL players were part of the roster during lockouts; the most famous including Jaromír Jágr, Eric Belanger and Niklas Hjalmarsson.
Following their championship win in their debut season in the ICEHL (2013/14), they won again in 2018. In both cases, it was a final game win over rivals Red Bull Salzburg on the road that gave the foxes the title!
