HistoryEdit

The first hockey club in Liberec was founded in 1934 under the name SK Rapid Horní Růžodol. After the WWII, there have been two sections: Jiskra Kolora and Tatran. In 1956, a new ice rink was built in Liberec and the clubs agreed to merge, under the name TJ Lokomotiva Liberec. Since 1961, the club have been named: Stadion Liberec.
