No team has dominated its domestic competition in recent years the way CEZ Basketball Nymburk has in the Czech Republic. This year the club hopes will be the season that dominance translates into a spot in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague. Nymburk enters the qualifying rounds for the fourth time aiming for its breakthrough. Last season the club enjoyed a strong Eurocup campaign that saw it reach the eighthfinals before returning home to claim its eighth consecutive Czech Cup and 11th straight Czech League title. Amazingly, all of Nymburk’s success has come recently. Founded in 1930, Nymburk is the oldest basketball club in the Czech Republic, but it wasn’t until 1995 that the current management, featuring former coaches and players, provided the spark for the current golden era. Nymburk climbed to the third division by 1997 and within three years won the second division and advanced to the top Czech league. Nymburk quickly established itself there by ranking third at the end of the 2001-02 season. Nymburk made it to the 2003 Czech League finals and its fans would not wait long to taste victory; Nymburk lifted the Czech League trophy the next year and has successfully defended it every season since. CEZ, the largest Czech utility company, soon became a general partner, which helped the club sign even better players. Nymburk made its ULEB Cup debut in the 2006-07 season and battled its way to the elimination rounds. In 2009-10, Nymburk advanced to the Eurocup eighthfinals. Looking for more challenges to satisfy a dedicated fan base, the Czech champion added both the Euroleague Qualifying Rounds and Adriatic League to its ambitions in 2010-11. Two years ago Nymburk expanded its schedule by joining the VTB United League and came close to the Eurocup Finals without losing its edge in the Czech League. After years of waiting, Nymburk fans hope that this be the year their team breaks through to play against the true lions of Europe.
