History

The club was founded in 1954 and was purchased by Benetton Group in 1982, although it retains Pallacanestro Treviso as its legal name to this day. With the deep pockets of the Benetton family backing them, the club emerged in the 1990s as a major force in both Italy and Europe. The club's first Italian League title came in 1992 with the legendary Toni Kukoč on the team.

Kukoc helped Benetton to reach the Euroleague final in 1993, while also helping them win three consecutive Italian Cup crowns. The team won the Saporta Cup title in 1995 with players like Orlando Woolridge and Petar Naumoski. Benetton added another Italian League domestic title in 1997, another Euroleague Final Four appearance in 1998, a Saporta Cup title in 1999, and the Italian Cup title in 2000.

Benetton won the Italian League championship and reached the Euroleague Final Four in both 2002 and 2003. Benetton won its fifth Italian League championship in 2006. In 2007, the team won its eighth Italian Cup title.
