Limoges Cercle Saint-Pierre, commonly referred to as Limoges CSP, is a French professional basketball club that is based in the city of Limoges. They currently participate in the LNB Pro A.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1929, but its peak was during the 1980s and 1990s, when they became the first French club to win a major European title in a team sport, by winning the Euroleague in 1993.

In the 1999–2000 season Limoges won its 9th title, but was relegated to the LNB Pro B after winning it because of financial problems. The club didn't get back to its old state for a long time, as it spend the next 3 years in the Pro A but relegated again in 2004. Starting the 2004–05 season Limoges played in the NM1, the French third division. It took the club six seasons to eventually return to the Pro A.

In the 2013–14 season Limoges returned to its old glory, as the team captured its 10th national championship, by beating Strasbourg IG 0–3 in the Finals.[1] The club also qualified for the 2014–15 Euroleague by winning the championship, what would be their first appearance in the top league in 17 seasons.
