History[edit] Founded in 1978, the side mostly played in the regional leagues until coming under new ownership in 1996. Following this, Orlandina Basket obtained two consecutive promotions to reach the Serie B2 in 1998. Signing Italian international Alessandro Fantozzi the same year, the club moved up to the Serie B1 in 2000 and the LegaDue (second division) the next year, though they were relegated after one season. Readmitted to the LegaDue in 2004 when the league needed to fill spaces, the side won the league to earn a promotion to the top-tier Serie A in 2005. In September 2008, Orlandina Basket was excluded from the Serie A along with Basket Napoli due to legal problems.[2] After this decision, the team restarted to play in Serie C Dilettanti, the fifth highest basketball league in Italy.[3] The side moved up the divisions, and went from the DNA, to the LegaDue in 2012. Despite losing the playoff final against Aquila Basket Trento, in 2013–14, Orlandina Basket was promoted to the Serie A, after Montepaschi Siena went bankrupt. On May 12, 2017, Orlandina won its first LBA play-off game, with a 80–87 road victory over Milano.[4] Arena[edit] The team plays its home games in the PalaFantozzi (named after former Orlandina star Alessandro Fantozzi), which seats 3,613 spectators..[5] Season by season[edit]
