GKK Šibenik is a Croatian professional basketball club based in Šibenik. It competes in the Croatian Premier League. The club considers itself a spiritual successor, if not a legal one, to the legendary KK Šibenik.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 2010 under the name Šibenik Stari grad (Šibenik Old town). In August 2011 club changed its name to the present one.

As famous Šibenik's club KK Šibenka bankrupted, GKK Šibenik competed with local KK Jolly to become most popular basketball club in town, carrying the legendary club's colors and playing in the same basketball hall. GKK Šibenik managed to win sympathies of many Šibenik residents who now see GKK Šibenik as a successor to famous KK Šibenka.

GKK Šibenik, now plays in Premijer liga and has achieved long awaited stability, with the help of Turkish sponsors Doğuş Group and City Council of Šibenik.
