Uniqa Euroleasing Sopron is a Hungarian women's basketball club from Sopron. Founded in 1921 as the women's section of Soproni VSE, it has played in the Hungarian National Championship since 1986. It plays its home games in the MKB Aréna Sopron.

Sopron won its first national championship in 1993, making its debut in the Euroleague the following season. Settled in the top positions, the team played in subsequent years the Ronchetti Cup, which it won in 1998 beating ASPTT Aix-en-Provence. As of 2011 Sopron remains the only Hungarian women's basketball team that has won an international competition since the fall of communism. The following year Sopron won its second championship, which marked its return to the Euroleague, which it has played every year since.[1]

The team has won four more championships since 2002, three of them between 2007 and 2011. In 2009 it reached the Euroleague's Final Four after beating Wisła Kraków and Bourges Basket in the knockout stages, ending 4th after losing to CB Avenida and UMMC Ekaterinburg.
