BC Budivelnyk is a Ukrainian professional basketball club based in Kiev. The club is currently playing in the Ukrainian Basketball SuperLeague and the Eurocup internationally. Budivelnyk is owned and operated by the banking and investing company PrivatBank.
Founded in the club's current form in 1962, the club was one of the leading clubs in Soviet League basketball. It was formed out of another team from Kiev, SKIF, that was originally established in 1945. The team was established as a team of the Republican Trade Union Volunteer Sport Society Avanhard, under sponsorship of the local municipal building company Kyivmiskbud-4 (Kiev-City-Construction-4). In Soviet times, the team played at the 7,000 seat Kiev Sports Palace. The team won the Soviet League in 1989, and the Ukrainian League six times.
Following the team's long period of success, a period of time in which the team declined ensued, and it was relegated to the lower Ukrainian division, due to financial problems. However, in 2006, the team was rescued by a group of businessmen who invested considerable resources into it, thus allowing it to return to the top league of Ukrainian basketball. Within two years, the team once again became one of the strongest teams in the Ukraine, finishing second in the Ukrainian National League.
In March 2010, the management of Budivelnyk held a joint press conference with the CEO and President of Euroleague Basketball Company, Jordi Bertomeu, announcing that they might join the Euroleague in the next few years. Eventually, a wildcard was conceded to the team for the 2013–14 Euroleague.
The original team played under the name of SKIF, from 1945 to 1962. The current team plays under the current name since 1962. The team's name means "Builder" in Ukrainian. The team is nicknamed as, "Konstruktor" (Constructor) and "Stroitel" (Russian for "Builder").
BC Budivelnyk play their home games at Kiev Sport Palace. It was built in 1960 and it has capacity of 7,000 seats.
