History

The most successful basketball club in Croatia, Cibona was founded in 1946 as Sloboda (Freedom). In the years that followed, the club was during various periods known as SD Zagreb (Sports Community Zagreb), Vihor (Whirlwind), Polet (Elan) and Lokomotiva (Locomotive). The name Lokomotiva was in use for 25 years.

In November 1975, the basketball club split away from the Lokomotiva sports society. The club's main sponsors became the four Croatia-based food industry giants (all of them state-owned at the time): Kraš, Franck, Badel and Voće. The club took the name Cibona, taken from the Latin cibus bonus, which translates to good food.

KK Cibona had its glorious years in 1984-1986 with great players like star Dražen Petrović, his brother Aleksandar Petrović, Zoran Čutura and Franjo Arapović and won 2 Euroleagues.
