MKS Cracovia SSA, commonly referred to as Cracovia Kraków and currently playing as ComArch Cracovia for sponsorship reasons, is an ice hockey team in Krakow, Poland. They play in the Polska Hokej Liga.

Founded in 1906, Cracovia is the oldest existing sports club in Poland. Ice hockey in the form of bandy had been first played around 1909, and the first North American style ice hockey game was played in 1912. The ice hockey section of the sports club was created in 1923. Currently, the men's ice hockey section functions independently, and is legally called MKS Cracovia SSA. The women's section continues to function under the sports society of KS Cracovia.

The men's professional team won five league titles in the 1930s and 1940s. It took them 57 years to win another league title after winning in 1949. They finally won the PLH again in 2006, and have since added four more titles, in 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2013.
