The Russian Basketball Super League (Russian: Баскетбольная Cуперлига) is a men's professional basketball league that was the pre-eminent league of Russian professional basketball until 2010. Currently, it is the second-tier division of the Russian professional basketball pyramid.

History[edit]

The Super League was relegated to being the second-tier division of Russian basketball after the 2009–10 season, and was replaced with a different first-tier league, starting with the 2010–11 season.[1]

The successor league to the Super League was not controlled by the Russian Basketball Federation, like the Super League is, but by a separate body named the Professional Basketball League (PBL).[2][3]

From the 2010–11 season onwards, the Super League A and Super League B (the previous second division of the Russian basketball pyramid) divisions were united into a single league that serves as the second tier of Russian basketball. The 2010–11 season featured 11 clubs.
