Ice sports became established in our town in the 1870s, as Lajos Molnár, CFO, made ice with the water of the stream flowing through his own plot.

Hockey started later at the foot of Harghita. It all started with a newscast played during a silent movie in the only cinema in the city, the Great Hall of the Old Vigado. The youngsters watched the news several times, giving them a brief insight into a real hockey match played by Canada and Austria in Vienna.

Lajos Vákár's reaction to this was a short, concise sentence: "We could do the same!"

The next day they went out to the ice and began to chase the frosty horse manure with willow hooks, which were later exchanged for a box of shoe polish. Soon some wealthy merchants stood by them.

After the first disc, a box of horse manure and shoe polish, it became the eraser of Vákár's book and stationery shop, and the rest of the equipment was obtained from perfume dealer Irén Adler from Vienna.

The team played its first match on January 4, 1931, in Sinaia, according to evidence in the newspaper's archives.
