Brose Baskets Bamberg comes off an up-and-down season in which the team competed hard despite not lifting any trophy for the first time since 2009. Bamberg was one win away from reaching the Euroleague Top 16 and the Eurocup elimination series. Meanwhile, in the German League, Bamberg fell in the Quartefinals. Founded in 1955, Bamberg qualified for the German first division in 1971. Renamed TTL Bamberg in 1988, it reached the German Cup final in 1990 and won that title in 1992. The club had been playing European competitions since 1973 and played its first group stage in the 1996-97 Korac Cup. Bamberg moved to Jako Arena and Dirk Bauermann arrived as the head coach. It soon became a perennial contender at home and reached the 2003 and 2004 German League finals. All that work paid off when Bamberg beat Frankfurt Skyliners to lift the 2005 German League trophy. Another name change made the club Brose Baskets and it became the first German team to reach the Euroleague Top 16 in the 2005-06 season. Bamberg won its second German League title in 2007. In 2009-10, Bamberg reached the Eurocup Last 16 and won the first of three consecutive German doubles (league and cup titles), becoming the team to beat in the country. Bamberg also returned to the Top 16 in the 2012-13 season. After being a Euroleague regular for years, Bamberg returns to the Eurocup for a full season, hoping to use their experience and fan base to reach deep.
