Wikipedia - Peristeri B.C.

Peristeri B.C., or Peristeri Athens B.C. (Greek: Περιστερίου K.A.E.) is a Greek professional basketball club that is located in Peristeri, Greece, which is both a city and a suburb in the western part of the Athens agglomeration. The club's full name is Gymnastikos Syllogos Peristeriou K.A.E. (Γυμναστικός Σύλλογος Περιστερίου K.A.E.). It is a part of the G.S. Peristeri (Γ.Σ. Περιστερίου) multi-sports club. The club was founded on October 22, 1971.

The club's emblem is the dove symbol, and the club's team colors are yellow and blue. For the 2022–23 season, the team competes in the Greek Basket League, which is the top-tier level league in Greece, as well as in the European-wide secondary level competition, the FIBA Basketball Champions League (BCL).


Early years and rise of the club

The club began play in the 1971–72 season. In the 1982–83 season, Peristeri Athens won the second level of Greek pro basketball, which was at that time, the Greek B League. In the 1988–89 season, Peristeri won the new Greek 2nd Division championship. In the following season, of 1989–90, Peristeri played games for the first time, in the top-tier level Greek League.

In the subsequent years in that era, the team was very successful, and many well-known basketball players played for the club. During this era, Peristeri competed in the European 3rd-tier level FIBA Korać Cup seven times (in the seasons 1991–92, 1992–93, 1993–94, 1994–95, 1996–97, 1997–98, and 1999–00). Well-known players such as Audie Norris, Marko Jarić, Milan Gurović, Angelos Koronios, Michalis Pelekanos, Kostas Tsartsaris, and Alphonso Ford played for the club in that era.

In the 2000–01 season, led by the great scorer Ford, Peristeri finished in second place in the Greek League, in the regular season. The club also competed in the European top-tier level EuroLeague competition, during the 2000–01 and 2001–02 seasons. In the 2002–03 season, Peristeri competed in the European secondary level FIBA EuroCup Challenge. In the 2003–04 season, the club played in the European 3rd-tier level FIBA EuroChallenge.

Decline of the club

Following the 2003–04 season, Peristeri was downgraded to the third division Greek B League, due to great financial troubles within the Peristeri Sports Club. For the 2007–08 season, Peristeri Athens returned to the second division Greek A2 League, after finishing in second place in the Greek B League, in the 2006–07 season. Cezary Trybański signed with the team for the 2007–08 season.

After the 2012–13 Greek Basket League season, Peristeri was again relegated down to the Greek A2 League. Due to economic issues, the club did not take part in the A2 League in the following season, and instead competed in the Greek B League (Greek 3rd Division).

In the 2014–15 season, Peristeri finished in fourth place, in the First Group of the Greek B League. Nevertheless, due to the withdrawal of Panionios Athens from the Greek A2 League, Peristeri was promoted back up to the A2 League, as they replaced Panionios in the competition.

Return to European-wide competitions

In the 2017–18 season, Peristeri won its third Greek 2nd Division championship. The team broke the league's win–loss record during the season, and finished with an overall record of 29 wins and just 1 loss. Thus, the club was promoted up to the top-tier level Greek Basket League for the 2018–19 season. The arrival of head coach Argiris Pedoulakis proved to be a key factor for the team. With Pedoulakis coaching, and a core of quality players, Peristeri finished second in the regular season and in fourth place overall at the end of the league's playoffs, which secured its return to European-wide competitions.

The club joined one of the two European-wide secondary leagues, the FIBA Basketball Champions League (BCL), for the 2019–20 season. The team had a successful BCL season, as they managed to progress to the round of 16 of the FIBA Champions League, where they were ultimately eliminated by the Israeli Super League club Hapoel Jerusalem. Peristeri finished in the third position of the 2019–20 Greek Basket League, although the season Greek League season ended prematurely, in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Greece.

Peristeri's 2020–21 Greek Basket League season wasn't as successful as the previous one, as they finished in sixth place in the league. During that season, the team used three different head coaches. The team also struggled to develop proper player chemistry throughout the duration of the season. Ultimately, Peristeri was unable to match their high points of the previous two seasons. In August 2022, the team was given the new sponsorship name of Peristeri B.C. Athens Bwin, after the club secured a naming rights deal with Bwin, for the purposes of increasing the team's budget, as part of an overall effort by the club to position itself in a higher echelon within the Greek Basket League.

Peristeri hired international basketball legend Vassilis Spanoulis to its head coaching position, for the 2022–23 season. Spanoulis guided the team to its first ever appearance in the Final of the Greek Cup competition. However, they were defeated in the 2022–23 Greek Cup final by Olympiacos Piraeus.
