Asseco Gdynia is a Polish professional basketball team, based in Gdynia. The team plays in the Polish PLK. The club's sponsorship name comes from the company Asseco. Historically the team is one of the most successful in Poland, mainly because of the nine championships in a row the team won from 2004 till 2012.

History[edit]

The team was founded in 1995 as STK Trefl Sopot. In its first season, the team won the Polish third division and promotion to the second division. In the 1996-97 season after winning Group B of the second division the team was promoted to the top Polish Basketball League, the Dominet Bank Ekstraliga.

In 2003, Prokom Trefl played in the final of the EuroCup Challenge against Aris. Since 2004, the team has played in the Euroleague, in its first season becoming the first Polish team to reach the Euroleague Top 16 stage. Through the 2012–13 season, it was one of 14 clubs across Europe that held Euroleague Basketball A Licenses, which (normally) give their holders an automatic place in the Regular Season phase of the EuroLeague.[1]
