History

In the first season the league comprised six Hungarian teams and four Romanian teams. HC Csíkszereda went undefeated in the post season to win the first MOL Liga title.

In the second season, the number of teams went down to five Hungarian and two Romanian teams. Following the regular season they decided the winner in a final four system. Budapest Stars met Újpesti TE in the final, after they beat SC Csíkszereda and Dab. Docler respectively. Újpest started the match better, taking the lead just after one and a half minute. However, the events took an U-turn and about two hours later it was the Budapest Stars who lifted the trophy, after winning the match 3–1.
