Slask Wroclaw history

The most decorated Polish basketball club, Slask Wroclaw, returns to the 7DAYS EuroCup after a prolonged absence. The 2007-08 season was the last time the 17-time Polish League and 14-time Polish Cup winner participated in the competition and the club that has been on a roller coaster ride ever since.Founded in 1948, Slask has turned Wroclaw into a basketball city known not only in Poland, but all around Europe. The club won six Polish League titles between 1965 and 1981 with the first coming behind Polish basketball legends Kazimierz Frelkiewicz and Mieczyslaw Lopatka.  Slask won 10 league titles in a span of 12 seasons, a run that began in the 1990s. Coach Andrej Urlep took the team to another level as Slask won five consecutive titles between 1998 and 2002 during the period called the Great Slask Era. No one knew would have guessed that the 2002 title would be the last for Slask.As a result of its domestic dominance, Slask played three EuroLeague campaigns between 2001 and 2004 and even knocked on the door of the Top 16 in 2003-04 behind an outstanding Lynn Greer, but lost its last four regular-season games and was eliminated in a six-way tiebreaker. Its EuroCup debut came in 2004-05 when Slask reached the eighthfinals before being swept by Maroussi. The team once again made it out of the regular season group in 2007-08, but was swept by Dynamo Moscow in the Last 32. Financial problems hit the club hard and Slask declared bankruptcy ahead of the 2008-09 season. It was relegated into the third Polish division where Slask stayed for four years before earning promotions in back-to-back seasons to return to the Polish elite for the 2013-14 campaign. Even though the team missed the playoffs, a 2014 Polish Cup triumph reminded Slask of its glory days. However, in 2016 Slask once again faced financial problems and was relegated into the third flight. This time, the climb back up lasted only three years, and Slask was back competing for Polish silverware in 2019. The 2020-21 was a season to remember. Against all expectations, the team played well the entire season and reached the playoff semifinals before beating Legia Warszaw in the third-place series to win the bronze medal, its first Polish League podium finish in 13 years. Slask now looks to build on recent success and continue its climb back to prominence as it embarks on its first EuroCup campaign in more than 13 years.
