BC Zenit Saint Petersburg (formerly known as BC Dynamo Moscow Region and BC Triumph Lyubertsy) is a Russian professional basketball team that is located in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The club competes in the VTB United League. Their home court is Sibur Arena. The club is sponsored by Gazprom.

History[edit]

The club was originally established in 2003, under the name BC Dynamo Moscow Region, and registered into the Russian Superleague A. The original club was based in Lyubertsy, Moscow Oblast, Russia.

In June 2007, the basketball club of Dynamo Moscow Region disbanded and became the newly reformed club of Triumph Lyubertsy Moscow Region'. Triumph Lyubertsy retained all of the history and records of the Dynamo Moscow Region club, through the acquisition of the club's history and rights. In the 2013–14 season, Triumph reached the Final of the EuroChallenge, in which it lost to Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia by 65:79.[1]

In July 2014, the club announced it was relocating from Lyubertsy to Saint Petersburg, and was changing its name to BC Zenit Saint Petersburg. The club retained the history and rights of BC Triumph Lyubertsy,[2] and also its place in both the VTB United League and the Eurocup.[3] While the club was still trying to retain a second club in Lyubertsy, that would compete in the Russian Super League.[4]

Arenas[edit]

Since the club moved to St. Petersburg, they play their home games at Sibur Arena. When the club was previously based in Lyubertsy, they played their home games at the SH Triumph arena.
