HistoryEdit

The basketball in Rogaška Slatina started playing in the early 1960s. After the Slovenian independence, the team played in top-tier and FIBA Korać Cup.[1] Because of financial difficulties in 1997, the club abolished senior team and competed just in youth competitions, before on February 20, 1998, the club was re-founded as KK Rogaška 98. Rogaška earned a promotion to the top division in 2011. In the 2014–15 and 2016–17 seasons, Rogaška reached the final of the top division, where they lost 3–1 on both occasions, to Tajfun and Union Olimpija, respectively.[2][3]
