The Syrian Basketball League (Arabic: الدوري السوري لكرة السلة‎) is the top-tier professional men's basketball league in Syria and one of the top leagues in Asia. It is organized annually as a national championship with playoffs and a national cup by the Syrian Basketball Federation. Both Aleppo teams, Jalaa SC and Al-Ittihad SC, dominated the league until 1993.

History[edit]

Jalaa SC, previously known as Shabibeh, dominated the league from 1956 until 1978. Then another team from Aleppo, Al-Ittihad SC, took all the titles until 1993.

Later on, Damascus clubs Al Wahda and Al-Jaish SC won some titles sporadically, yet they are far from the Aleppo dominant clubs.
