HistoryEdit

The team was founded in 1947 and was known under the abbreviations ODO (Okruzhnoy Dom Ofitserov), SKVO (Sportivnyi Klub Voennogo Okruga) and eventually SKA (Sportivnyi Klub Armii).[3] In 1999, after Neftyanik had qualified for the highest division, the two clubs merged to become SKA-Neftyanik. SKA played in the elite division of Soviet bandy ever since 1954.

The name of the club SKA stands for "Sports Club of the Army", while Neftyanik means "oiler" as the team was sponsored by the Khabarovsk Oil Refinery.

Since the 2013-14 season the team plays at the brand new indoor arena, Arena Yerofey.[4]

In the 2016-17 season the club became Russian champion for the first time.[5]

The club colours are red, yellow and black.
