BKK Radnički (Serbian Cyrillic: БКК Раднички) is a men's professional basketball club based in Belgrade, Serbia. BKK stands for Beogradski košarkaški klub meaning "Belgrade Basketball Club".

History[edit]

The club was founded on 7 June 1945 in the Belgrade's neighborhood of Crveni Krst, which is where their nickname krstaši (the Crusaders) comes from. Radnički achieved biggest success during the 1970s, when the generation coached by Slobodan Ivković won the title of Yugoslav League champion in 1973. The club also won a Yugoslav Cup in 1976, and reached another cup final in 1978.

During this decade, Radnički also had good results in continental competitions. In 1974, they reached the semi-finals of a Champions Cup, where they were stopped by reigning European champions, Ignis Varese.[1] In 1977, Radnički reached the finals of a Cup Winners' Cup where they lost to Forst Cantù by a single point margin, 86–87.[2]

Arena[edit]

Sports Center Šumice is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in the Voždovac municipality of Belgrade and it has a capacity of 1,000 seats. Radnički also has its own little hall in Crveni Krst.
