HC Kometa Brno (Kometa means comet in English) is the second most successful ice hockey club in the Czech Republic with 11 Czechoslovak league titles (right after HC Dukla Jihlava which have 12 titles). With three European Cup titles, Kometa is also the most successful Czech club in international ice hockey. The club was founded in 1953 as an army ice hockey club with the name Rudá Hvězda Brno (Red Star Brno). In 1962 the club changed its name to ZKL Brno and stopped being an army team. In 1996 the team relegated from Czech Extraliga to the second highest ice hockey league – Czech 1.liga. On 1 April 2009, Kometa bought the licence for Czech Extraliga from another south Moravian club, HC Znojemští Orli. This club will now serve as a farm team for Brno.
