Kuban enjoyed its golden era in the late 1980s, winning two Cup Winners' Cups in 1987 and 1988 by beating TSC Berlin and Vasas Budapest in the final, and reaching the 1990 European Cup's final, lost to Hypo Niederösterreich, after winning the 1989 Soviet Championship. Kuban also played a third unsuccessful Cup Winners' Cup final in 1989.[1]

Following the collapse of the Soviet Union Kuban won the transitional CIS Championship, but it hasn't been able to win the new Russian Super League to date. Between 1997 and 2000 the team was second to Istochnik Rostov and Aqva Volgograd, its best results. In 2000 it also reached its fourth Cup Winners' Cup's final, losing to Mar Valencia.[2]

Most recently Kuban was 6th in the 2016 championship.
