Rosa Radom see Basketball Champions League's transparency appealing to fans

RADOM (Basketball Champions League) - As its meteoric rise through the ranks of Polish basketball suggests, Rosa Radom is an organisation that has mastered the secrets of rapid development.

The club was founded as recently as 2003 and competed in a regional league with a roster consisting of home-grown players up to 21 years of age until 2006, when they successfully applied to the Polish Federation (PZKosz) to enter the Polish national league system. Radom started climbing divisions year after year, reached 1 Liga (the second division) in 2010 and earned promotion to the Polish top flight (Tauron PLK) in 2012. In 2016, the club brought home its first ever Polish Cup trophy and reached the TBL play-off finals.

The Basketball Champions League is based on clear and entirely sports-related criteria. The success of the UEFA Champions League shows that a transparent competition system guarantees great interest. - Bartkiewicz

"Our main pillars are a strong strategic sponsor in Rosa Group and the local council, Radom Borough," said Robert Bartkiewicz, the General Manager of Rosa Radom who also served as the club's first-ever coach. "It is worth underlining the transparent scholarship system for sportsmen guaranteed by the local council which enables clubs to plan in the long term.

"Secondly, our development strategy with young talented players is vital. At present we have teams at all levels of competition from the PLK through the fourth league and youth teams from U20 through U14, we have a total of 250 players with the Polish Federation license. We take pride in having the best organised and the most developed training system in Poland.
