BC Samara is a Russian professional basketball team that is based in Samara, Russia. The club was formally patronized by the Russian Air Force (VVS).


BC Samara was a silver medalist (runner-up) of the Russian Super League 1 in 1992, and a 3-time bronze medalist (third-place finisher), in the years 1993, 1997, and 1998. In the 2006–07 season, Samara won the championship of the European-wide 4th tier-level league, the FIBA EuroCup.

The team could not participate in the 2009–10 Russian Super League 1 season, due to bankruptcy, and it thus was replaced in the league by Krasnye Krylya Samara.


BC Samara plays its home games at the 3,500 seat MTL Arena.
