A new sponsorship of Caffè Ernani has been born!
We decided to support a local sporting entity that we are very fond of.
In fact, the owners of Caffè Ernani have always been big basketball fans, and having all grown up in Desio, they have one particular team in their hearts : Aurora Desio Basketball . They follow every game, even on the road, so they always have a way to cheer their favorite team.
We could only begin this collaboration to offer concrete support.
We believe that supporting sports is important: wellness and physical health are fundamental to being well.
Aurora Desio Basketball – Presentation
The club was born on June 29, 1994, a few days after the demise of the old and glorious A.S. Aurora Basket Desio.
After the first 1994/95 season, exclusively dedicated to youth activities and studded with several satisfactions, the merger with Orobica Basket Bergamo allowed the Desi-based club to return to the B2 series championship in the 1995/96 season.
The following year, thanks to the acquisition of Juve Cremona’s rights, Aurora participated in the B1 championship, immediately touching promotion to the A2 series at the first attempt.
In the summer of ’98, however, they opted for a about-face, choosing not to register for the B1, but to restart from the Promotion league, in which they could have their own youngsters play.
The climb to the national championships proves to be sudden, and in just 3 seasons Aurora conquers the C1 series.
Indeed, it began with the finals in the spring of 1999 during which the Desian team hit the D series; the following year the script repeated itself: no playoffs and direct promotion to the C2 series.
In 2000/01, after finishing the regular season in second place, the Desians earned a pass to the C1 Series by taking the runner-up spot at the Final-Six in Cassano d’Adda. He spent thirteenseasons in the C1 series, reaching the playoffs , five times to the semifinals and in the 2009/10 and 2013/14 seasons to the promotion final.
In the summer of 2014, an application for repechage to the Serie B was granted, allowing Aurora to return to the national third tier 16 years after its last appearance. This incredible experience lasted a full 5 years, achieving a great result, reaching the promotion playoffs, which were won in the 2017/18 season.
In the following season Aurora relegated again to the C Gold Series, a category it still plays in today.
Summing up Pallacanestro Aurora Desio over the years won the following titles:
- 4 Junior/Under 20 National Finals (1995, 2000, 2004, 2017)
