    Voința Miercurea Ciuc

    I have a question about Miercurea Ciuc Hockey.

    In Saison 1959/60 there are 2 Teams from Miercurea Ciuc.

    Voința Miercurea Ciuc as Champion and Avântul Miercurea Ciuc as 4.

    I think Voința Miercurea Ciuc is the same Team as HSC Csíkszereda today with 14 Titles.

    Who can give me more information about Avântul Miercurea Ciuc ?

    The team names from this time period in Romania are very confusing. From 1948 to 1956, Avantul Miercurea Ciuc was the only team from Miercurea Ciuc playing in the Romanian League.

    In 1956-57, the sole team in the city was called Recolta Miercurea Ciuc, who won the championship that year. For 1957-58, the only team was known as Voința Miercurea Ciuc.

    This changed for 1958-59 as there was both a Vointa (who finished second) and a Recolta (who finished sixth) playing in the league. In 1959-60, as you correctly pointed out, there was both a Vointa and an Avantul playing in the league.

    From 1960-61 to 1961-62, Vointa was the sole team in the league. For 1962-63, Vointa finished first and Avantul came in sixth. From 1963 to 1973, Avantul was the only team from Miercurea Ciuc playing in the Romanian League. The squad then became known as SC Miercurea Ciuc in 1973-74.

    So the history is confusing... I wonder if in some years there were "A" and "B" teams from the same Miercurea Ciuc squad assigned different names, or if they were entirely separate squads altogether.

    Here is a timeline to help keep it all straight:

    1948-1956: Avantul Miercurea Ciuc
    1956-57: Recolta Miercurea Ciuc
    1957-58: Vointa Miercurea Ciuc
    1958-59: Vointa Miercurea Ciuc, Recolta Miercurea Ciuc
    1959-60: Vointa Miercurea Ciuc, Avantul Miercurea Ciuc
    1960-1962: Avantul Miercurea Ciuc
    1962-63: Vointa Miercurea Ciuc, Avantul Miercurea Ciuc
    1963-1973: Avantul Miercurea Ciuc
    After 1973: SC Miercurea Ciuc
