Reyer Venezia Mestre, or Reyer Venice Mestre, is an Italian professional basketball club that is based in Venice, Veneto. It operates both men's and women's professional teams, both playing in their respective first divisions as of the 2017–18 season. Founded in 1872, as gymnastics club Società Sportiva Costantino Reyer, it started sponsoring basketball in 1907, operating in the past as Pallacanestro Venezia.

The men's team won the LBA in 1942, 1943 and 2017.

History

The Reyer team that won league titles in 1942 and 1943

The team was founded in 1872, by the gymnastics teacher Peter Gallo in Venice. In the 1941–42 and 1942–43 season, Reyer won back-to-back Italian league titles. In 1944, the team also won the Italian championship, but the victory was not approved by the Italian Federation.

The club under the name "Carrera Venezia" participated in the 1980–81 FIBA Korać Cup and managed to reach the final where the club defeated 104–105 by Joventut Freixenet that took place in Palau Blaugrana, Barcelona at March 19.

In 2006–07, Reyer was the amateur champion of Italy, and promoted to the LegaDue. In the 2010–11 season, the team finally promoted back to the Lega Basket Serie A.

In the 2016–17 season, Reyer reached the Italian League Finals for the first time since 1944.[1] Reyer claimed its third national championship on June 20, 2017, after beating Trento 4–2 in the series.[2] Reyer also played in the Basketball Champions League that season and advanced to the Final Four, where the team finished in fourth place.[3]
