Logo launch underscores SuperCup Women return
MUNICH (Germany) - The SuperCup Women returns in October, following a one-year hiatus, and the countdown to the festive game that celebrates women’s basketball commences with the launch of a dedicated competition logo.
The SuperCup Women 2021 is officially set to take place at 20:30 CET on Friday, October 22, in Valencia. The single-game Final will feature Russia's UMMC Ekaterinburg , the EuroLeague Women 2020-21 champions, and Spain's Valencia BC, who conquered the EuroCup Women crown last season.
The all-new SuperCup Women logo combines visual elements from the respective logos of the EuroLeague Women and EuroCup Women and is fittingly unveiled ahead of a game that will pit the team with the most SuperCup Women titles, four-time winners UMMC Ekaterinburg, against a club that is making its maiden appearance in the event, in Valencia BC.
The Spanish club will host the event at Pavello Municipal Font de Sant Lluis (commonly known as La Fonteta), which was also the venue of the Final Phase of FIBA Women’s EuroBasket 2021, last summer.
Despite the one-year hiatus UMMC Ekaterinburg will find themselves in familiar territory as they won the most recent edition, in 2019, after prevailing 87-67 over fellow Russian club Nadezhda Orenburg.
Sparta&k Moscow Region Vidnoje had lifted the trophy in the inaugural edition of the SuperCup Women in 2009 and repeated their success the following year.
Perfumerías Avenida Salamanca became in 2011 the first and so far only Spanish team to win the SuperCup Women, with UMMC then claiming their first title of four titles in 2013.
ZVVZ USK Praha defeated UMMC in the 2015 edition but the Ekaterinburg club returned to the throne in 2016. Dynamo Kursk celebrated success in 2017 but then UMMC responded with back-to-back trophy conquests in 2018 and 2019.
