KK Vojvodina Srbijagas

Košarkaški klub Vojvodina Srbijagas (Serbian Cyrillic: Кошаркашки клуб Војводина Србијагас), commonly referred to as KK Vojvodina Srbijagas or New Vojvodina—to distinguish it from the same-name town rivals KK Vojvodina (which functioned as Vojvodina Srbijagas's reserve team)—was a men's professional basketball club based in Novi Sad, Serbia. The club participated in the Basketball League of Serbia and Adriatic League. They played their home games in SPC Vojvodina. The club disbanded before the 2016–17 season due to a bad financial situation, when the sponsor, Srbijagas, ceased their investments in the team. It was not a member of the Sport Society Vojvodina, but a successor of the KK Beobanka and KK Novi Sad clubs.

Beobanka was a club based in Belgrade, FR Yugoslavia (now Serbia). The club competed in the First League of FR Yugoslavia from 1995 to 2000. Their matches were played at the Palata sportova. Their biggest success was the participation in the 1997–98 Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Cup final where they lost to the Budućnost. They participated in European competitions – the FIBA Korać Cup (1996–97, and 1998–99) and the FIBA EuroCup (1997–98). It was coached by Darko Russo. The club was legally disbanded in summer of 2000, relocated to Novi Sad, and renamed to KK Vojvodina Srbijagas.

Shortly afterward, the Petroleum Industry of Serbia (NIS) took over the founding rights and became the owner of the entire capital of Beobanka/Vojvodina Srbijagas.[1] Thus was created KK NIS Vojvodina before the start of the 2000–01 season. In their debut season in the YUBA League, they finished in eighth place during the regular season, and qualified for the playoffs, where they were eliminated in the first round by KK Budućnost Podgorica after two games.

KK Vojvodina Srbijagas

In 2006, the club changed its name back to the simpler KK Vojvodina Srbijagas. In 2011, the club was merged with another local team, Košarkaški klub Novi Sad (Serbian Cyrillic: Кошаркашки клуб Нови Сад), commonly called KK Novi Sad, which had been founded in 1985. Notably, Novi Sad had participated at the 2003 PBA Invitational Championship in the Philippines. The merger was done to help strengthen the financial position of the clubs.

In the summer of 2016, however, Vojvodina Srbijagas went into bankruptcy and subsequently was dissolved.[2]
