One of the most important milestones of Sopron1s women’s basketball. There were Sopron supporters sitting on top of the baskets on the side, as well as on the radiators, to cheer their favorite club on for their first ever championship title. The historic success came in an unforgettable game, and the fiesta went on until dawn by the Fire Tower.
Game 3 of the championship finals began in our favor on March 27th in 1993, because after three seconds SVSE were in a 3-0 advantage thanks to a three-point play by Bubu Balogh. MTK, however, have found their rhythm afterward, and took over the lead four minutes into the game (4th minute 10-12). We kept up with the opponents led by Bubu, the teams were neck and neck almost all the way through the half (34-35), but in the half-time break the scoreboard showed a five-point away lead (20th minute 47-52).
MTK kept increasing their lead further at the beginning of the second half, but then Andrea Csávás started scoring besides Judit Balogh, and so our team took over control again, and caught up with their rivals (23rd minute 56-56). There were five minutes left in the game when we were ahead by a double-digit margin (88-75). After that MTK started their last comeback effort and came dangerously close to us, but thanks to great tactics and long offensive possessions SVSE-GySEV had managed to win the game, and with that, their first Hungarian league championship title (40th minute 91-87)!

András Magyar: I can only say congratulations to the entire team. We were very worried an the beginning, and made many mistakes. We talked everything over in the half-time break and took advantage of our opponent’s slips.

Who would have thought back in 2018 that a year later we would be able to host the Euroleague FINAL4 again? Well, the world set their eyes on Sopron again, because the decision-makers at FIBA thought that only the experience staff of our club would be able to organize the event on a high level within three weeks
Ki gondolta volna 2018-ban, hogy egy év múlva ismét mi rendezhetjük az Euroliga négyes döntőjét? Már pedig ismét Sopronra szegezte tekintetét a nagyvilág, miután a FIBA döntnökei úgy gondolták, egyesül a mi klubunk tapasztalt stábja tudja három hét alatt megszervezni magas színvonalon az eseményt
A 2018-as FINAL4 döntője kapcsán ünnepre készült minden magyar kosárlabda barát! Először léphetett pályára magyar csapat az Euroliga elsőségért! A túloldalon egy kisebb világválogatott sorakozott fel, mely érvényre is juttatta nagyobb erejét a remekül küzdő csapatunkkal szemben
Even making it to the FINAL4 in 2018 was an incredible performance, not to mention that for the first time in club history we were able to host the top clubs of Euroleague and many important personalities of the basketball world
Már az is elképesztő teljesítmény volt, hogy 2018-ban ott lehettünk a FINAL4-ban, arról nem is beszélve, hogy fennállásunk során először láthattuk vendégül rendezőként az Euroliga top csapatait és a kosárlabda világ számos neves személyiségét
