Bandırma Basketbol İhtisas Kulübü (English: Bandırma Basketball Specialization Club), for sponsorship reasons Teksüt Bandırma,[1] was a Turkish professional basketball team from Bandırma, Turkey. Their home arena is the Kara Ali Acar Sport Hall.[2][3]

Founded in 1994 as Banvit B.K., the team played in the highest level Basketbol Süper Ligi since 2004. The team reached the Süper Ligi finals in 2013 and won the Turkish Cup in 2017. Banvit was also a regular in European competitions, with their best result being Basketball Champions League runners-up in 2017.

The team was dissolved in 2021 due to financial issues.[4]


The Banvit basketball club was founded in 1994, by workers at Banvit, a meat company based in Bandirma. The team began playing in the Turkish regional leagues in 1998, and were promoted to the Turkish second division in 2001. In 2004, the team was promoted to the Turkish top-tier level BSL, as champions of the second division.[5]

The team played in the European-wide fourth-tier level FIBA EuroCup Challenge, in their first BSL season, and reached the league's semifinal. The team has reached the semifinal of the BSL five times, and reached the final of the Turkish Cup twice. In the 2012–13 season, the team beat Beşiktaş, in the quarterfinal series, and beat Anadolu Efes in the semifinal series of the BSL playoffs, and reached the league's finals, where they lost against Galatasaray Medical Park 4–1. In the next season, Banvit qualified for the Qualifying Round of the EuroLeague 2013–14 season. But they lost in the qualification round against Telenet Oostende, and were dropped down to the second-tier level EuroCup.[citation needed]
