    The greatest accomplishments in the history of Anwil Wloclawek

    The win is one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of Polish club basketball, and it highlights the country’s growing presence in the sport. In the 2022/2023 season, a team from Ostrow Wielkopolski won the regional ENBL league, while a team from Dabrowa Gornicza emerged as champions in the Alpe Adria Cup.

    Anwil’s triumph over Cholet Basket is a remarkable feat that will be remembered for years to come. It serves as a testament to the team’s hard work, dedication, and passion for the game, as well as the strength and competitiveness of the Polish basketball scene.

    Road to victory

    Basketball club Anwil Włocławek, who won the championship in the 2017/2018 season, continued their success by signing their coach, Igor Milicić, to a two-year contract. The team’s roster was mostly built from scratch, with some players leaving due to financial expectations or other reasons. Anwil’s preparation for the demanding Basketball Champions League season was successful, as they brought in new players and extended contracts with some existing players, such as the captain, Kamil Łączyński. Despite losing one player to medical reasons, they were ready for the season, with a total of twelve players on their roster. After a slow start, the team won ten consecutive games, thanks to the efforts of their coach and roster changes, including the addition of Aaron Broussard.
