HistoryEdit

Founded in 1994, Amics Castelló played for the first time the Liga EBA in the 1999–2000 season, achieving in 2002 a vacant berth to play the LEB 2 league, Spanish third division. After four seasons always in the low part of the standings, Amics Castelló was relegated to the Liga EBA, where it played during the six next seasons, only qualifying for the promotion playoffs in the last one.

However, the club achieved again a vacant place in LEB Plata, playing there until the 2014–15 season, when the club won the Copa LEB Plata by defeating CEBA Guadalajara and promoted to LEB Oro, also defeating the team from Castile-La Mancha.
