HC Sparta Prague have regularly been one of the best teams in the Czech Republic, making it to the playoffs almost every year. Sparta’s first string of success was when they won back-to-back national titles in 1952/53 and 1953/54 under the name Spartak Sokolovo. Later, Sparta won the Czechoslovak league in 1989/90 and 1992/93. Since the separate Czech Extraliga was established, Sparta has won four more titles (2000, 2002, 2006 and 2007).
They've been runners up for the European Championship in 2000 and 2008. Sparta played their home games at the Sports Hall on the Holesovice Fairgrounds from 1962 until 2015. At that point, they moved to the larger and more modern O2 Arena.
Sparta have to consider themselves one of the most unlucky teams to play in a CHL Final. First, they were the only time to be beaten in overtime and second, that game in Gothenburg was their last appearance in the competition to date. Their appearance in 2019/20 will be their fourth.
