Székesfehérvári Volán Sports Club was founded in 1960. In 1964–65, the team started playing in outdoor rinks and 10 years later the hockey department came together with the intention of having a professional team. In 1977, the opening of a rink started a new chapter in the history of Hungarian hockey and Volan. At this point, only Budapest and Dunaújváros had suitable structure for hockey. They played their first season in the Hungarian championships in 1977–78, and three years later on the back of Budapest VSC folding and the Sports club benefiting from an influx of BVSC players captured their first Hungarian championship in 1981, becoming the first provincial team to do so.

At the turn of the millennium, Alba Volán-FeVita rose to prominence to become the top team in the nation. This culminated in the series of 10 consecutive championship titles of the Hungarian league from 2003. This turn of domination persuaded the club seek application into the Austrian League for stronger competition. This happened against the background, to better expose the players of the national team in the A-group level. In their first EBEL season in 2007–08, Alba Volánbusz experienced to skill level difference and finished in last place, this was offset however, by the successful Hungarian national team inclusion at the 2008 IIHF World Championships after seventy years back promotion to the highest international division.[1]

Fehérvár AV19' still competed in the Hungarian Championship at first, with the club sourcing a farm team SAPA AV19 Székesfehérvár II in the Championship or the MOL Liga. However, after many years of struggling to field a competitive team in 2012 they were unable to participate in the Hungarian Championship, as they were required to enter their second team in the Erste Bank Junior League. They did not directly inform the Hungarian Ice Hockey Federation of their decision. This led to angst, however, the club still participated in the Hungarian Cup.
