Basketball Club Khimki Moscow Oblast Region (in Russian: баскетбольный клуб Химки Моско́вской о́бласти), also known as BC Khimki, Khimki BC or Khimki Moscow Region, is a Russian professional basketball team that is based in Khimki, Moscow Oblast Region, Russia. The club's first team participates in the VTB United League, the Russian Superleague A, and also the Euroleague.



BC Khimki is considered to be one of most important basketball clubs in all of Russia. The team was founded on January 5, 1997, and won the first seasons' championship of its regional league, taking the opportunity to earn a place in the Russian Superleague A. The following year, Khimki positioned itself among the top 10 basketball clubs in the nation of Russia, guaranteeing a birth to the European cup competition the Korać Cup.

The team remained in a middle position in the Russian Super League until the 2002-03 season. That year the club made an improvement and the team finished in fourth place in the Russian Super League, demonstrating an excellent style of game. During the subsequent years, the Russian high society behind the club decided to make the roster even stronger, by signing players such as Gianmarco Pozzecco, Óscar Torres and Ruben Wolkowyski.

In 2006, Khimki played in the EuroChallenge's championship game against Joventut Badalona. Khimki won the Russian Cup in the year 2008 and played in the ULEB Eurocup championship game in 2009.
