HistoryEdit

Founded in 1966, CB Breogán only needed five years to promote for the first time in its history to the Liga Nacional. It played in it from 1971 to 1977, except in the 1974–75 season, before dropping down again to lower divisions.

Breogán came back to the top tier, now named Liga ACB in 1984, and it qualified for playing the Korać Cup after finishing in the sixth position. It became a classic team in the league until 1995, when it lost to against Valvi Girona and became relegated to Liga EBA.

Its third era in Liga ACB started in 1999 and lasted seven years. In 2006, Breogán was the last qualified in the table and was relegated to LEB Oro, where it continued playing until 2018, when it promoted again to the top tier by winning the LEB Oro.[4]
