A new challenge awaits perennial Serbian champion Partizan NIS Belgrade as it enters Eurocup after 13 seasons in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague. Partizan is coming off another successful season in which it reached the Euroleague Top 16, the Adriatic League semifinals, and lifted its 13th straight Serbian crown, continuing its domestic reign. Founded in 1945, Partizan started to make noise in European competitions in the late 1970s. It won Korac Cup titles in 1978 and 1979, before Vlade Divac and Zarko Paspalj helped the club reach the 1988 Euroleague Final Four and lift the 1989 Korac Cup. In 1992, Partizan won the Euroleague title by downing DKV Joventut 70-71 on a miraculous buzzer-beater by Sasha Djordjevic. Partizan returned to the Euroleague Final Four in 1998, and in recent years has managed to develop players while using its domestic titles to turn into a Euroleague giant. The club registered three consecutive Euroleague playoff appearances and capped the run at the 2010 Final Four, where Partizan became the first team to lose both its Final Four games in overtime. Domestically since the turn of the century, Partizan has dominated with its run of league crowns, five consecutive Serbian Cups from 2008 through 2012, and ruling the Adriatic League with five trophies from 2007 through 2011, and another in 2013. Now, a proud club with a brilliant fan base wants to extend its run among Europe’s elite and delight tens of thousands of its fans that treat basketball – and the club – like a religion.
