History

The club was founded in 1908, and won the City of Berlin Championship in 1910. When the German Ice Hockey Championship was introduced in 1912, the club dominated, winning eighteen titles between 1912 and 1944.

After the Second World War, the club played under the name of EC-Eichkamp Berlin, before being renamed Berliner Schlittschuchclub again in 1951. As EC-Eichkamp Berlin, they finished as runner-up in the German Championship in 1947 and 1949.

In the 1958-59 season the club continued playing in the Oberliga, but did not qualify for the newly-founded Eishockey-Bundesliga. They remained in the Oberliga/2nd Bundesliga for most of the 60's, except 1966-67, before they were promoted to the Bundesliga for the 1972-73 season.

Berliner won the Bundesliga title in 1974, for the first time since 1944, and won the title again two years later, in 1976.
