IK Göta is a Swedish sports club, which was very successful in ice hockey in the early to mid 20th century, winning the Swedish ice hockey championship nine times, including the inaugural championship in 1922. The club was also operating a bandy team, winning the Swedish championship in bandy once, in 1927.

Today, the club only operates an ice hockey section under the name Göta Traneberg IK, following a merger with Tranebergs IF in 2007. The section operates both junior and senior ice hockey teams.

History[edit]

IK Göta was founded October 1, 1900, and was one of the pioneers in Swedish ice hockey. The team took the initiative to form the Swedish Ice Hockey Association in 1922 and won the first Swedish Championship against Hammarby IF with a score of 6-0 the same year. In total, they won nine Swedish Championships, the last one in 1948.

The team played in the highest league, now the Swedish Hockey League, in Sweden for 34 seasons and won nine championships, last time in 1948. The ice hockey section merged with Tranebergs IF in 2007, forming junior and senior teams under the name Göta Traneberg IK.

The club was founded by Gothenburg guest workers who moved to Stockholm to escape unemployment. Therefore the name "IK Göta". The first site the team played at was the Olympic Stadium in Stockholm. A few years later the teams site were moved to nearby Östermalms IP. The team relocated in mid 1970s to the Bromma area, a Stockholm suburb within the city limits. The sporting grounds were named "Stora Mossen" after the old classic sporting ground in Gothenburg City with the same name.
