HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 2008 by a merger of Hapoel Gilboa (which had previously been merged with Hapoel Afula, which regained its independence) and Hapoel Galil Elyon.[1][2] The club took Hapoel Galil Elyon's place in the Israeli Basketball Premier League, the top division of Israeli basketball. The merger agreement had originally been to play 70% of the club's home domestic league games at Gan Ner Sports Hall in Gan Ner (a village of 2,700 people near Mount Gilboa, in the Galilee in northern Israel)[3] and 30% of their home domestic league games in Hapoel Galil Elyon's arena in Kfar Blum, but most of the club's home domestic league games are played in Gan Ner.[2]

In May 2010, Hapoel Gilboa Galil won the Israeli Championship, after defeating the defending champions Maccabi Tel Aviv by a score of 90–77 in the finals of the playoffs.

In the summer of 2018, the club had financial difficulties, and a large part of it was purchased by fans.
