HistoryEdit

The club was originally established on September 8, 1935, as BC Spartak Leningrad. The club then became known as BC Spartak Saint Petersburg in 1991. The club was disbanded on July 31, 2014, due to financial problems. However, it was later reestablished shortly thereafter, for the 2016–17 season, under the name of BC Kondrashin Belov, in honor of Alexander Belov and Vladimir Kondrashin.

In February 2017, the club once again took the name of BC Spartak Saint Petersburg,[1] and signed a sponsorship contract with VTB, one of the largest state-owned banks in Russia.

Home arenasEdit

The 7,000-seat[2] Yubileyni Arena was the long-time home arena of BC Spartak Saint Petersburg. After that, the club moved to the 7,120-seat[3] Sibur Arena.

Since 2017, the club hosts its games at the Nova Arena complex.
