Name

The official association name (föreningsnamn) is still Umeå BasketBollklubb (Umeå BBK) but the name rights has been sold twice. As the main sponsor for Umeå BBK, the company UDOMiNATE Sweden AB made a deal with Umeå BBK about its name and during most of the 2010s the club has been known as Udominate Basket. In 2018 however the telecom company A3 Sverige AB bought the name rights and the club has since been known as A3 Basket.[3]
