History[edit]

The hockey section in the Partizan sport society was established in 1948, and at their first appearance at the state championship they won its first league title. In the period between 1951 and 1955, Partizan has been by far the strongest hockey team in the country winning 5 consecutive championship titles. Their roster was practically equal to the national team side, consisting of the best hockey players from many different nationalities, from Serbia (Dr. Zlatko Kovačević, Milan Jovanović, Nikola Stanimirović, Gantar Ladocki), Croatia (Josip Brelić, Alfred David, Boris Renaud and Mico Dušanović), from Macedonia (Blažo Piperski), Slovenia (Luce Žitnik), Montenegro (Blažo Mijušković), and in one season Canadian O 'Neil (officer of the embassy in Belgrade) helped them with his fantastic games and goals. Later, due to the departure of many crucial players, Partizan lost the primacy to Slovenian clubs in the championship. After a long break, Partizan won the Cup in 1966 and latter in 1986 they won both championship and cup, thus qualifying for European Cup. In the first round they eliminated Romanian champions Steaua, but lost in the second round to Polish champions Polonia Bytom.[1] Partizan's second appearance in European cup came in 1996. They finished last in the first group round, behind Sokil Kyiv, Steaua Bucharest and Levski Sofia.
