Women’s Basketball Club Spartak Moscow Region is a women's basketball team based in Vidnoye, Russia that plays in FIBA’s EuroLeague Women. It is a highly successful team in recent years, winning the 2005–06 EuroCup Women and the 2006–07, 2007–08, 2008–09 and 2009–10 EuroLeague Women championship and the inaugural SuperCup Women. It is currently the only team that has managed to win 4 consecutive EuroLeague Women titles since 1991 when European Cup For Women’s Champions Clubs was rebranded as the Euroleague Women. This is due in part to the team's supplementing of its otherwise Russian roster with seasoned WNBA stars Lauren Jackson, Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, Anete Jēkabsone-Žogota, and others.
