History in brief

The hockey club Tappara originates from TBK, Tammerfors Boll Klubb, which was founded in 1932. TBK promoted to the top Finnish hockey level in 1942, and won three national championships until the club’s hockey section changed its name to Tappara in 1955.

Tappara returned to the top league a year after it was relegated.
