Scafati Basket, known for sponsorship reasons as Givova Scafati, is an Italian professional basketball club based in Scafati, Campania. It plays in the second-division Serie A2 as of the 2015-16 season.

History[edit]

Scafati Basket traces its history to Silvio Pellico, a club founded in 1949 by a group of students in 1949. That merged with Savoia in 1955 to form Scafatese Basket, which would be renamed Centro Sportivo Scafatese in 1969. The team played in the amateur regional Serie C and Serie D until the early 1990s when, under the presidency of Aniello Longobardi, it climbed up divisions to reach the first tier Serie A in 2006.

It was relegated from the Serie A following its last place finish in 2007–08.
