History[edit]

In the first season the league comprised six Hungarian teams and four Romanian teams. HC Csíkszereda went undefeated in the post season to win the first MOL Liga title.

In 2009-10 the number of teams went down to five Hungarian and two Romanian teams. Following the regular season they decided the winner in a final four system. Budapest Stars met Újpesti TE in the final, after they beat SC Csíkszereda and Dab. Docler respectively. Újpest started the match better, taking the lead just after one and a half minute. However, the events took an U-turn and about two hours later it was the Budapest Stars who lifted the trophy, after winning the match 3–1.

The 2010–11 MOL Liga season was the third edition of the international ice hockey championship for teams from Hungary and Romania. This season nine teams participated, including defending champions Vasas Budapest Stars, the second team of Erste Bank Eishockey Liga outfit SAPA AV19 Székesfehérvár and HSC Csíkszereda from Szekler Land.

Following the withdrawal of Vasas HC, the field is composed of eight clubs this season, including five Hungarian and three Romanian. The regular season ran from 6 September 2011 to 20 January 2012. After the conclusion of the regular season the six best ranked teams won the right to participate in the playoffs. Top two clubs had bye in the first round of the playoffs, while the remaining four teams were drawn together according to their final position in the regular season (3–6, 4–5). The winners of the match-ups advanced to the semifinals, where they met Dunaújvárosi Acélbikák and HSC Csíkszereda, respectively. Eventually, Miskolci JJSE beat HSC Csíkszereda and thus secured their spot in the finals, where they faced Dunaújváros, which won their duel in straight matches against Corona Fenestela Braşov. Dunaújváros enjoyed the home court advantage in the best-of-seven series final, where they swept away Miskolc with 4–0 and took the 2011–12 MOL Liga title, the first ever of its kind in the history of the club.
