About us

The history of the league began on April 22, 1993 when coaches of eight leading Lithuanian clubs – Žalgiris Kaunas, Atletas Kaunas, Drobė Kaunas, Statyba Vilnius, Olimpas Plungė, Šilutė, Lietkabelis Panevėžys and Neptūnas Kaipėda – and representatives of the Šarunas Marčiulionis Basketball Foundation established the Lithuanian Basketball Association, the first professional sports organization in the country.
