HistoryEdit

The club was among the first to be established in Israel, when the IFA set up the women's league.[2] and one of the only two clubs (along with Hapoel Petah Tikva) which took part in all league seasons.

In its 21 seasons in the Israeli women's football league, the club won 8 championships and finished 7 times as runners-up. By winning the league, the club qualified to the UEFA Women's Champions League, first appearing in 2010–11. In six attempts, the club qualified once from the qualifying round, in 2011–12, eventually losing to Torres Calcio Femminile in the Round of 32.

In the Israeli Women's Cup, the club appeared in eleven finals, losing in its first seven, including in six straight finals between 2004 and 2009. The club finally won its first cup in 2011 and added two more cups in 2012 and 2014.
