BC Khimki (Russian: БК «Химки») is a Russian professional basketball team that is based in Khimki, Moscow Oblast. The club's first team participates in the Euroleague and the VTB United League. The club's full official name is BC Khimki Moscow Region.[1]

History[edit]

BC Khimki is considered to be one of the most important basketball clubs in all of Russia. The team was founded on January 5, 1997, and won the first seasons' championship of its regional league, taking the opportunity to earn a place in the Russian Superleague A. The following year, Khimki positioned itself among the top 10 basketball clubs in the nation of Russia, guaranteeing a place in the 3rd-tier European cup competition, the Korać Cup. There, the team competed against a group of defeated leaders of the Turkish Basketball League, YUBA Liga, and Bulgarian League. In those years, the team featured such famous players as guard Sergei Bazarevich, Valery Sizov (Soviet Union national team player) and Russian national team player Vitaly Nosov.

The team remained in a middle position in the Russian Super League until the 2002–03 season. That year the club made an improvement, and the team finished in fourth place in the Russian Super League, demonstrating an excellent style of game. During the subsequent years, the Russian high society behind the club decided to make the roster even stronger, by signing players such as Gianmarco Pozzecco, Óscar Torres, and Rubén Wolkowyski.

The team has participated several times in recent years in continental tournaments like the 3rd-tier EuroChallenge and the 2nd-tier EuroCup. In 2006, Khimki played in the EuroChallenge's championship game against Joventut Badalona. On 7 October 2006, Khimki played in a game against the NBA club the Los Angeles Clippers, losing by a score of 98 to 91.

Khimki won the Russian Cup in 2008, and played in the EuroCup championship game in 2009. The team played in the 1st-tier Euroleague for the first time in the 2009–10 season, and also played in the Euroleague during the 2010–11 season and 2012–13 seasons. The team also won the EuroCup in 2012 and 2015, after winning over Valencia Basket and Herbalife Gran Canaria in the Finals, respectively.

Arenas[edit]

Khimki has played its homes at the Basketball Center of Moscow Region for both national domestic league games and European league games. Starting with the 2015–16 season, Khimki started playing Euroleague games at the Krylatskoye Sports Palace.
