Nürnberg Falcons BC, formerly called Nürnberger BC (abbreviated as NBC) is a basketball club based in Nuremberg, Germany. The team currently in the ProA, the German professional second division. In 2010–11 the team promoted from the ProB to the ProA.[1]

In 2019, Nürnberg finished as runner-up in the ProA. The Falcons play their home games in the Eventpalast am Flughafen, which has a capacity of 1,540 people.

History[edit]

In the 2018–19 ProA season, Nürnberg ended in third place in the standings. In the playoffs it defeated second-seeded Heidelberg to qualify for the ProA finals. Because of this achievement, the team earned promotion to the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) for the first time.[2] In May 2019, it was announced that Falcons did not obtain a license for the BBL due to not meeting requirements on minimum arena size and minimum budget.[3]
