Mountfield Hokejový Klub is a professional men's ice hockey club based in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic. It is a member of the Czech Extraliga. The club was formed after the original HC Mountfield was unable to resolve a sponsorship dispute.[1]

History

Mountfield HK aligns itself with the history of Králov?tí Lvi, a club formed in Hradec Králové in 1926 that operated a men's team until 2013. In the meantime, Mountfield a.s., a Czech-based home and garden retailer, owned and operated a hockey club in ?eské Bud?jovice from 2006 to 2013.

Following the 2012-13 season, the Czech Extraliga reached a sponsorship deal with Radegast to sell its beer in all Extraliga arenas. This agreement conflicted with the naming rights deal ?eské Bud?jovice already had with Budweiser Budvar Brewery for their arena. Under the agreement, the club and the city would face stiff penalties for selling any beer other than Budvar products.[2][3] Unable to resolve the dispute, the club decided on June 18, 2013 that no agreement could be reached between the parties involved and voted to immediately relocate to Hradec Králové for the 2013-14 season.[4][5]

Since then, Králov?tí Lvi has been Mountfield HK's youth program, while Motor ?eské Bud?jovice inherited Hradec Králové's spot in the Czech 1.liga.
