The club was founded in 1949 as Mahane Yehuda Dror. When it joined the Israel Football Association in 1950, the current name was adopted.
In 1965 the club was promoted to Liga Leumit, then the top division. In their first season they finished 8th. However, the 1966–68 season saw the club finish second bottom of the division, resulting in relegation back to Liga Alef. Since then they have remained in the lower divisions.
Between 1990 and 1993 the club was managed by Eyal Lahman.
