Sparta Prague have regularly been one of the best teams in the Czech Republic, making it to the playoffs almost every year. They are based in the Czech capital, Prague, and are one of the most supported teams in the country.
Their traditional colours are blue, yellow and red and their name is in reference to the legacy of the ancient Greek warriors from Sparta.
Sparta’s first string of success was when they won back-to-back national titles in 1952/53 and 1953/54. Later, Sparta won the Czechoslovak league in 1989/90 and 1992/93.
Since the Czech Extraliga was established, Sparta have won four more titles (2000, 2002, 2006 and 2007) and have never dropped out of the top league.
The last three Extraliga seasons have seen them finish first once and third two times.
They were runners up for the European Championship in 2000 and 2008.
Sparta played their home games in the Sports Hall of the Holešovice Fairgrounds from 1962 until 2015 when they moved to the larger and more modern O2 Arena.
Sparta's best CHL campaign to date was in 2016/17 when they made it all the way to the Final, where they were beaten in OT by Frölunda Gothenburg in the closest final in CHL history.
