Ice hockey has its origins in Canada, when in 1880, in Montreal the first hockey association came into being: Montreal Association Amateur (MAA).
In 1895, some of the Canadian players arrived to Europe, where they found a hockey game type with 11 players and one round rubber ball, the definition of what we call “brandy” nowadays. The French and later the English where the first Europeans who adopted (the) ice hockey from overseas.
In Romania, ice hockey showed up a little bit later, after the First World War, somewhere/sometime between 1920/1921, in the current park named “Nicolae Titulescu” from the city centre of Brașov, where, thanks to the cold, hard winters, the footbal field turned into an ice rink.
The first organiser of a hockey team in Brașov was the professor Dragoș Navrea on the 3rd of January 1924 at Brașovia club. In the same year, in Brașov is incurred a second ice hockey team which belonged to the troops of Montagnards Colțea. Back then, Brașov was known as a strong (ice) skating center in Romania!
On January 22nd 1925, in Brașov, in front of an enthusiastic crowd, took place the first ice hockey championship which had as participants two teams from Brașov and two other from Bucharest. Following the results, the first national ice hockey champion was Brașovia team having the following roster: Drahedy (goalie), Csiky și Joncika (defensemen), Nagy, Gonczi și Schaltter (forwards).
After the Second World War, Brasov is represented in internal contests by teams as: Șantierul, SOVROM Tractor or Steagul Roșu. Among the players, there can be some values distinguished such as: Ion Țiriac (later known as a great tennis player, St. Ionescu, the Mazgăreanu brothers and St. Peter.
The presence of Ion Țiriac in the ice hockey national team of Romania at the Innsbruck Olympic Games in 1964 should also be recorded. The competition ended with the romanians on the honorable place 4. In his book entitled “ 50 years of hockey in Romania” the coach Mihai Flamaropol mentioned:
… February 1975, the games in division B took place in Poiana Brasov … having as participants the following teams: Tractorul Brașov, Școlarul București, SC Sportiva Miercurea Ciuc, SC Sportiva Odorhei, Lic. Nr. 1 M. Ciuc, SC Sportiva Gheorgheni, Metalul Radauți, Avântul Gheorgheni și Unirea Sf. Gheorghe.
The title was won by Unirea Sf. Gheorghe, who defeated Tractorul Brașov in the final with the score of 5-4.
The failure of the qualification has been a hard blow for the ice hockey in Brasov.
During the year 2005 the hope of the rebeginning/ rebirth of hockey was brought back in Brașov when, in september 2005 a new hockey department/section is founded at CSM Brașov, ran by prof. Florin Florea.
A comprehensive selection in schools comes next in Brașov, as a result of which 35 children born in 1997/1998 and younger will train their skills in the new ice hockey department.
In 2006 the little hockey players were presented to the public having great ambitions to restore the tradition of ice hockey in Brașov.
In june-july 2007, Ervin Miklos and Tanczos Barna, together with Janos Kurko, the president of the federation by then, had a broad discussion about the future of hockey in Brașov with George Scripcaru. They also discussed about an eventual intention of the city hall to bring hockey back in Brașov.
