SKA Hockey Club will celebrate its 75th anniversary in the 2021/2022 campaign.
Along with Moscow clubs CSKA, Dynamo and Spartak, SKA is one of the oldest ice hockey organisations in the country and took part in the first USSR championship, which was held in the 1946/1947 season.
Over the years, SKA has become one of the leaders of Russian ice hockey, going from two bronze medals of the USSR championship to winning two KHL Gagarin Cups, the Russian championship and the status of Saint Petersburg's sporting symbol.
In honour of the 75th anniversary, all SKA teams will perform with a special celebratory badge on their respective jerseys throughout the 2021/2022 season. The badge contains the numbers 75, 1946 and 2021, as well as the well-known army shield and star.
The senior SKA team will sport the badge for the first time at the upcoming 2021 Sochi Hockey Open, a pre-season competition.
A series of events dedicated to SKA's 75th anniversary will also be held during the season. On December 22, the date of the club's 75th anniversary, SKA will face HC CSKA Moscow in Saint Petersburg in the KHL.
