Pallacanestro Trieste 2004, known for sponsorship reasons as Alma Trieste is an Italian professional basketball club based in Trieste. They play in the second division Serie A2 as of the 2016-17 season. The Palatrieste serves as their arena.

History[edit]

A number of Trieste teams had played in the first division Serie A, the most successful of which was Società Ginnastica Triestina (from the 1930s to the 1960s) that won several national championships in the 1930s and 1940s. Three other top division Trieste sides were Lega Nazionale Trieste (1949-1951), San Giusto Trieste (1948-1949) and Polizia Civile Trieste (1949-1950).

Pallacanestro Trieste was established in 1975, it played in the top tier Serie A from 1982 to 1986, 1990 to 1997 and again from 1999 to 2004, with a best result of third in 1994. That same year, it reached the Korać Cup final. The next season saw the team reaching the Italian Cup final.

After the 2003-04 season, the club went bankrupt and was relegated to the lower divisions.

After many years spent between the third and fourth division, in 2010 Eugenio Dalmasson was appointed Head Coach. Finally in 2012, the team reached the promotion to the second division with a win against Chieti in an epic game-5 in front of 6000 people.[1]
