2022 Spengler Cup

The 2021 tournament was supposed to be the 94th, but due to a coronavirus pandemic it was cancelled.

The upcoming Spengler Cup will be held from 26-31 December 2022. Matches will take place at Vaillant Arena, the home ice venue of HC Davos.

History of the Spengler Cup

The tournament is named after Karl Spengler, a doctor who spent his life treating tuberculosis. He was involved in founding the tournament which was first held in 1923. The main idea of the tournament was to unite the countries that fought against each other during World War I. The team from Oxford University was the first to win the cup.

Team Davos and LTC Praha from Czechoslovakia dominated the first 24 tournaments. It was not until 1978 that the tournament took place on the indoor ice rink of the Vaillant Arena, until then the competition had been played on outdoor ice.

Throughout its history, the tournament has not been held just 6 times: in 1939, 1940, 1949, 1956 and in 2020, 2021 (the last 2 times due to a coronavirus pandemic).
