Békéscsabai Előre Női Kézilabda Sport Egyesület is a Hungarian women's handball club from Békéscsaba, that plays in the Nemzeti Bajnokság I, after having been promoted in 2006.

Since they are sponsored by EUbility Group, the official name of the team is EUbility Group-Békéscsabai Előre NKSE.[1]


The birth of the team dated back to 1973, when multi-sports club Békéscsabai Előre Spartacus took over the local team Kötöttárugyár, and thus it became one of the departments of the club.

The team have promoted to the top level league first in 1980, and two years later they achieved their greatest success up to date, having won silver medal in the Hungarian championship and reaching the quarterfinals of the IHF Cup (predecessor of EHF Cup). However, the following two decades remained unsuccessful, the club turned into a mid-table team.

In 2000 the handball department seceded from the main club, which caused a staggering setback: with continually worsening results year after year, in 2004 Békéscsaba eventually got relegated.

Shocked by the results, the club with the support of the local government have worked out a long-term conception, mainly based on the new, rising generation. The club have always been well known for their grassroot programs, and have been honoured by the Hungarian Handball Federation for their work with youths in 2008.

At the end of 2006, Békéscsaba fought back to the top-tier championship, and after survived the first two seasons, a slow development has started. The team finished in 2008 in the eighth position, and achieved a fourth place in the following year, with that they earned a place in the EHF Cup.[2]
