HistoryEdit

Founded in 1994, CB Miraflores played its first years in the provincial league of Burgos.[2] Its professional team was created in August 2015 with the aim to replace CB Tizona, which could not promote to Liga ACB at the end of the 2014–15 season, as the main club of the city.[3]

On 28 August 2015, after the resignation of Tizona to continue playing in the league for focusing their efforts in their trial against the ACB, the club was admitted in LEB Oro.[4] Miraflores set the successful Baskonia as a model of sports management.[5]

In its second season, the club qualified for the Copa Princesa de Asturias and promoted to Liga ACB on 10 June 2017, after winning the promotion playoffs without losing any game.[6] Miraflores achieved the fourth promotion for the city of Burgos in five years after the two times of CB Atapuerca in 2013 and 2014 and CB Tizona in 2016; but no one of them finally could meet the requirements for playing in the top tier.[7] With the admission in the new league, Miraflores moved from Polideportivo El Plantío, with only 2,500 seats, to the Coliseum Burgos, that has a capacity for 9,500 people.

The club achieved its first victory in the top league on 11 November 2017, after seven consecutive losses, by beating UCAM Murcia at home, by 89–86,[8] and finished their debut season in the 14th position with 13 wins out of 34 matches.

Two years later, Miraflores made its debut in European competitions by defeating Kyiv-Basket in the second qualifying round of the 2019–20 Basketball Champions League.
