And single clubs had participated in the Latvian championship randomly: in 2006-07 Estonian Big Diamonds Tartu , a kind of super club created in the same year, finished 6th in the Latvian Virsliga before to folding due to financial issues. Lithuanian eternal champion Energija Elektrenai took part in Virsliga from 2003 to 2007 before to migrate in Belarus 2nd division.

Now from October 2019 a championship called Baltic League will start with eight clubs: four from Latvia and two from Lithuania and Estonia, divided into two groups, after the legendary players of Lithuania and Latvia Sandis Ozoliņš and Darius Kasparaitis, After the round robin, thefirst two teams of each group will advance to the final four tournament, which will be held in Latvia in late December.
