Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club (English: Central German Basketball Club) is a professional basketball club based in Weißenfels, Germany. The club currently plays in the Basketball Bundesliga, the first tier league in Germany.

History[edit]

The club has played in the Basketball Bundesliga since the 1999–2000 season. In 2004, the club won the FIBA EuroCup Challenge, defeating JDA Dijon Basket in the Final. Later that season, however, the team filed for bankruptcy and the league relegated the team to the Oberliga (third division).[1]

MBC won promotion to the second division after the 2004–05 season and earned promotion back to the Basketball Bundesliga after the 2008–09 season. In 2010 and 2016 the team relegated again, but promoted back the next season both times.
