Vålerenga Ishockey is an Oslo-based ice hockey club, and a part of the Vålerenga IF multi-sports club. Their home arena is Jordal Amfi, located in eastern Oslo. A new arena at Jordal is currently under planning to replace the current arena, which was built for the 1952 Winter Olympics. The club has been the dominant force in Norwegian hockey since the 1960s, claiming 26 titles.
Vålerenga Ishockey has the most trophies in all Norwegian team sports. The team's present coach is retired Norwegian hockey player Espen Knutsen.
Although the parent club Vålerengens Idrettsforening was founded in 1913, the history of Vålerenga Ishockey starts in 1947, when the junior team participated in the national junior championships for the first time. In the 50s, the junior team would go on to win the national junior championships five years in a row.
The senior team would have its breakthrough in the 1960s, winning the national championships seven years in a row.
The club was in talks to participate in the KHL for the 2014-15 season, but then became focused to join the league for the 2015-16 season. Since then, no progress has been made thus far.
During the 90s, the club moved to the newly built Oslo Spektrum in central Oslo. However, a number of different factors saw the team move home to Jordal Amfi after just three years. As of 2015, a new arena at Jordal is under planning. The arena is projected to be completed in 2018.
