Sports Club Ice Hockey CSKA - HISTORY

Sports Club Ice Hockey CSKA - HISTORY

Ice hockey develops in Bulgaria in the start of the 20th century, but the organized hockey becomes famous in the end of the 40s. In 1994 a tournament in honor of the 5th congress of "Bulgarian Communist Party" is held and a few teams participate in it. On the 16th of September in the same year, the "Republican section for skates and ice hockey" is created. At the start, the competitions are in the form of city championships, without age requirements. One of the first teams is CSKA's one.

During 1952 the first republican championship is held, where CSKA doesn't reach top 3. In the next competition, CSKA becomes third and wins its first medals. Then a few competitions that are played at the capital's racecourse, in which CSKA participates under the name "CDNA" and wins silver four times and bronze two times.

The golden period for CSKA is in the 60s, when CDNA unites with the hockey hegemon in those times - "Red flag" and under the name of CSKA "Red flag" four consecutive titles are won in the period 1963-67. After the second place in 1968, the golden rhythm is regained and CSKA is a champion in 1969 once again. Until 1975, five new titles are won, and the hegemony in CSKA is stopped only for one season by the team from Pernik - "Krakra".

CSKA won the title in 1983 once again and doubled it during the next season. In 1986 the "army" players win their third title for the decade, which turns out to be their last for the next 27 years.

After the changes in 1989, ice hockey degrades in Bulgaria as a whole, and CSKA suffers the most out of those changes. Separate competitions are held where only up to 3 teams participate. On a certain championship the title was to be given to one of the two teams that participated, which was very curious. However, CSKA manages to keep ice hockey alive throughout all of those years, and in the last few years a new powerful period is established when the hockey club is taken over by the coach and president Kiril Hodulov.

There is a future for ice hockey for CSKA, especially because the team is full of young and talented payers. One of them is Nikolai Bozhanov. Bozhanov has went through all of the formations of the "army" team and is also very thankful to the coach - Kiril Hodulov, who constantly helps him. Niki is a hereditary fan of CSKA and always visits the games of CSKA when he has the opportunity to, no matter what the sport is.

From 2012 CSKA not only wins three consecutive titles, but also returns with a bang on the European hockey scene. The club participates in the prestige tournament for the "Continental cup", where in two consecutive seasons the club manages to go through the first phase.

Unfortunately, in 2015 however, due to the lack of enough financial support, CSKA is forced to give up its participation in the second group stage of the "Continental cup", even though the club won in a dominant fashion in Belgrade.
