UMMC Ekaterinburg is the most successful team in the championship with 12 titles, including a record 10-year winning streak. Defunct team CSKA Moscow, later relocated to Samara as VBM-SGAU Samara (9), Dynamo Moscow (4) and Spartak Moscow Region (2) follow in the palmares. Thanks to large number of foreign players, WBPL teams have been successful in the Euroleague since the 2000s, with Spartak Moscow Region winning 4 titles in a row (a competition record up to 1976), and UMMC Ekaterinburg and VBM-SGAU Samara one each.
