HistoryEdit

The women's team of the club has made three appearances in the FIBA Eurocup since 2007.[2] Dnipro would reach their first championship series against BC Khimik in 2015, only to be swept by them by three games. A year later, Dnipro would win their first ever Ukrainian SuperLeague Championship, sweeping BC Budivelnyk in all three of their games against them.

The 2019–20 Superleague season was ended prematurely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because Dnipro was first in the standings at the time, the team won its second championship.
