The Top 5 Basketball Teams in Italy

The Top 5 Basketball Teams in Italy

The Lega Basket Serie A, known in English as the Serie A Basketball League, is officially abbreviated to LBA, and known as the Serie A PosteMobile for sponsorship reasons. It is a professional men’s club basketball league that was first organised in that country in 1920, and it is made up of the first and highest-tier of the league pyramid in Italy. Lets take a look at the top five teams in the LBA.

Dinamo Basket Sassari

This team is currently known as Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari because of its sponsor, and is based in Sassari, in Sardinia. The team features athletes who are well known for their impressive on court performance and their ball skills.

Orlandina Basket

Betaland Capo d’Orlando, as this team is known thanks to sponsorship reasons, is an Italian pro basketball club based in Sicily. The team plays in the LBA first division as of the 2016/2017 season.

Orlandina Basket, the other name by which this team is known by, plays home games in the PalaFantozzi, which is able to seat almost 4 000 spectators.

U.S. Victoria Libertas Pallacanestro

Victoria Libertas, or VL, is a pro basketball team based in Pesaro, in Italy, and its full name is Unione Sportiva Victoria Libertas Pallacanestro. It was previously known across the European region as Scavolini Pesaro, from the moniker given to it from its main sponsor historically, Scavolini, from 1975 through to 2014, but its new sponsor is Consultinvest Pesaro, and so a new name is in use.

Very popular in both Europe and the online betting world, this team is the third-best in all of Italy.

Aquila Basket Trento

The Aquila Basket Trento team is known, for sponsorship reasons, as Dolomiti Energia Trento, and has its base in Trent, Trentino, Italy. The team was founded as recently as 1995 as a merger of two local clubs, and it has managed to go from the amateur division to the first division of the LBA in less than ten years. It plays in Italy’s LBA as of the 2016/2017 season.

Pallacanestro Olimpia Milano

Pallacanestro Olimpia Milano is known as the EA7 Emporio Armani Milano thanks to its title sponsor, and has two additional alternative names as well:

1. Pallacanestro Olimpia Milan

2. Emporio Armani Milan

This team’s colours are red and white, and they are sometimes referred as Scarpette Rosse, which means Little Red Shoes, thanks to the imported red Converse All-Star shoes the players don for the games.

As is custom with teams in the Italian League, the changes in sponsorship has seen the name change often:

· The team was called Borletti Milano from 1936 to 1955

· Simmenthal was its moniker from 1956 to 1973

· And the 1980s saw it going by Billy, Simac, Tracer, and Phillips

Emporio Armani Milan is the basketball club with the most titles in Italy thanks to the fact that it has won 27 of the Italian League championships, six of the Italian National Cups, one Italian Super Cup, one EuroLeague, one FIBA Intercontinental Cup, three FIBA Saporta Cups, two FIBA Kora? Cups and a host of junior titles.
