Franchise history
Spartak Moscow
Current season

HC Spartak Moscow (Russian: ХК Спартак Москва, English: Spartak Moskva) is a professional ice hockey team based in Moscow, Russia. They played in the Tarasov Division of the Kontinental Hockey League during the 2013–14 season. However, the team did not participate in the KHL league for the 2014–15 season because of financial issues,[1][2] but rejoined the league prior to the 2015–16 season as members of the Bobrov Division.

History

One of the sections of the Spartak Moscow sports club, HC Spartak Moscow was established in 1946. They have won the Soviet Championship four times, and have also had European-level success in the Spengler Cup, which they have won five times.

The financial state of the team became worse and worse since the beginning of 2006. After the season, a Russian businessman and huge Spartak fan, Vadim Melkov, volunteered to find suitable sponsorship for his favorite team. After negotiations, the Government of Moscow agreed to cover all of team debts. Some preliminary agreements about team sale were achieved as well. However, Melkov died during the S7 Airlines plane crash of July 9, 2006. All the deal proposals were cancelled. After a month of struggling to improve the financial situation, it was decided by Spartak management to disband the team for a year.[3]

On 13 January 2016, Russian fans threw two bananas on the ice after HC Spartak Moscow lost 4:1 in a KHL match at home to Medveščak Zagreb, for which the apparent target, Edwin Hedberg, played.[4][5] Hedberg himself admitted he encountered it for the first time, adding that "things like this shouldn't happen but unfortunately they do",[4] while Medveščak's head coach, Gordie Dwyer, said that he was upset with the fans' behavior, and "this obviously has no place in sport".[6] Later on, Spartak Moscow had issued an official apology to both Medveščak and Hedberg, affirming that video cameras at Sokolniki Arena had helped identify two offenders who will now be banned from attending hockey games.[5][6] The cameras also recorded the hooting from the stands during an episode with Hedberg on 35th minute of the match.[6] The Kontinental Hockey League had fined Spartak Moscow 700,000 rubles ($9,135) for the racist incident and "seriously warned" about the future conduct of their fans, adding that "breaches linked to the incitement of racial, ethnic, or international discord are unacceptable".[5][7]
