The Frölunda Indians have led the Swedish Hockey League in attendance for several years and Gothenburg is well known for its great interest in hockey. In recent years, the club has become well known throughout Europe due to its success in the Champions Hockey League, reaching the Final three times and winning titles in 2016 and 2017.
The club has changed its name twice. The original name from 1944 was Västra Frölunda, followed by Västra Frölunda Hockey Club in 1984 and Frölunda Hockey Club in 1994.
Over the years, the team has been coached by respectable names such as Leif Boork, Lars Falk, Tommy Boustedt and Conny Evensson. The current coach Roger Rönnberg arrived in 2013 and is on a long-term contract – it expires 2019.
