Asseco Gdynia is a Polish professional basketball team, based in Gdynia. The team plays in the Polish PLK. The club's sponsorship name comes from the company Asseco. Historically the team is one of the most successful in Poland, mainly because of the nine championships in a row the team won from 2004 till 2012.


The team was founded in 1995 as STK Trefl Sopot. In its first season, the team won the polish third division and promotion to the second division. In the 1996-97 season after winning Group B of the second division the team was promoted to the top Polish Basketball League, the Dominet Bank Ekstraliga.

In 2003, Prokom Trefl played in the final of the EuroCup Challenge against Aris. Since 2004, the team has played in the Euroleague, in its first season becoming the first Polish team to reach the Euroleague Top 16 stage. Through the 2012–13 season, it was one of 14 clubs across Europe that held Euroleague Basketball A Licenses, which (normally) give their holders an automatic place in the Regular Season phase of the Euroleague.[1]

The first three seasons in the Polish first division were difficult for the newcomers. Despite many roster and coaching changes the team failed to advance to the league playoffs. The team's greatest success during that time span was winning the Polish Cup in the year 2000 under newly hired coach Eugeniusz Kijewski.

The 2000-01 season was another step ahead for the team, as they again won the Polish Cup and finished third in the league in their first playoff appearance. In the next two seasons the team played in league's finals, losing both times, in 2002 to Śląsk Wrocław 4 games to 1 and in 2003 to Anwil Włocławek 4 games to 2.

Since 2004 the team has been unbeaten in Poland, winning five straight finals. In 2004 they defeated Śląsk Wrocław 4 games to 1 in the finals. In 2005 and 2006 they defeated Anwil Włocławek in the finals, winning 4 games to 2 in 2005 and 4 games to 1 in 2006. Since 2007 they defeated Turów Zgorzelec in the finals 3 times, winning 4 games to 1 in 2007, 4 games to 3 in 2008 and again 4 games to 1 in 2009. In 2010 they defeated Anwil Włocławek in a 4-0 sweep to retain the title.
