HistoryEdit

BC Odessa was one of the most distinguished basketball clubs in the country and has won the UBSL championship 4 times. It was founded in 1992 under the name BIPA-Moda after its sponsor company. Following the death of its 1st president Arkadiy Tabachnyk in 1999, the club became municipal and, hence, changed its name to MBC Odessa. In 2006, the club turned private again after its purchase by the current president Oleh Bychkov, and its name was changed to the present BC Odessa. After the 2015–16 season, the club disappeared. However, another club BIPA Odessa played in the SuperLeague the following years.

In the summer of 2018, BC Dynamo Odessa, winner of the second-tier division, was renamed and merged to BC Odessa.[1] Previously, BIPA Odessa was merged to BC Dynamo Odessa in 2017.[2][3]
