HistoryEdit

In 2002, Szedeák was playing in the NB I/B, the national second tier division. However, after the season, the men's team was forced to withdraw from the league which meant only youth teams remained. In 2006, Péter Kardos took over the management of the club and made the team return to Hungary's second tier league. In 2010, the club promoted to the NB I/A, the national top league. In 2014, Szedeák entered the national championship playoffs for the first time, losing 0–3 to Szolnoki Olaj.

In the 2020–21 season, Szedeák finished third in the NB I/A under head coach Srecko Sekulovic, the best performance in club history.[1]

In the 2021–22 season, Szedeák entered the qualifying rounds of the FIBA Europe Cup, marking the club's debut in Europe.[2]
