History[edit]

In the 2017–18 season, Anwil finished first in the regular season with a 24–8 record. In the following playoffs, Anwil beat Turów Zgorzelec in the quarterfinals and defending champions Zielona Góra in the semifinals. On 4 June 2018, Włocławek won its second PLK title after defeating Stal Ostrów Wielkopolski 65–73 in Game 6 of the finals.[2] Anwil's Kamil Łączyński, who averaged 10.8 points and 4.8 assists in the series, was named PLK Finals MVP.[3]

In the 2018–19 season, Anwil made its debut in the Basketball Champions League. In Group A, Anwil had a 4–10 record and did not advance past the regular season. In the playoffs, it eliminated first-seeded Arka Gdynia in the semifinals, 3–2. In the finals, the team beat Polski Cukier Toruń in seven games to repeat as Polish champions. The deciding Game 7 was won 77–89 despite the game being in Toruń.[4]
