About club

Storhamar Hockey have been one of the leading clubs in Norwegian hockey for the last 30 years, winning the playoffs six times (1995, 1996, 1997, 2000, 2004, 2008), as well as seven league championships.

Hockey came to Hamar in the mid fifties and in 1957 it got its own branch of Storhamar Idrettslag (Sports club). Despite being upstarts and having quite a modest infrastructure they took big strides fast. By 1963 they reached the second level of Norwegian hockey. Playing outdoors on naturally frozen ice the started to lag behind clubs from bigger cities. So in 1981 the new arena, Storhamar Ishall, was opened and the club celebrated with a second ascension into the top level where they have remained since.

Even though Storhamar were amongst the top teams throughout the late eighties and early nineties they struggled to make the absolute summit, regularly finishing second in the league and going out in the semis of the playoffs. When it was announced that neighbouring Lillehammer would host the 94 Olympics, the lobbyists tried to get one of the arenas to Storhamar. The plan succeeded and in December 1992 they moved in to the new building. This helped the club and the sport immensely, as people now could watch the games in comfort and with a great view. The club's revenues grew drastically and soon the biggest names in the Norwegian game were knocking on the door. At the end of the first season the elusive first trophy was secured when the league championship came to Hamar. In the next few years Storhamar went from being a contender to a dominant force.

The last title to this date came in 2008 when Frisk Asker were beaten in six games. Recurring economic problems forced the club to make cuts, and for few seasons they had to content with mid table finishes. After another crisis in 2013-14 it was all turned around. A group of local businessmen saved the immediate future of the club, and the rest was secured with a love affair between the fans and a very exciting group of players and the club is now a dominant force in Norwegian Hockey along Stavanger Oilers.
