HistoryEdit

The arena was opened in 1999. Pabellón Insular Santiago Martín is the property of the Cabildo de Tenerife (the Island Council of Tenerife), and the Ayuntamiento de La Laguna (the La Laguna City Council). Through an agreement with the Comisión de Gobierno de la Corporación Insular, the management of the pavilion was ceded to the Gestión Insular para el Deporte, la Cultura y el Ocio (the Tenerife Sport, Culture and Leisure Management, also known as IDECO).

The arena hosted the 2017 Basketball Champions League Final Four, as Iberostar Tenerife hosted the tournament.[2] Tenerife won its first Champions League title in the Santiago Martín. The arena also hosted the 2017 FIBA Intercontinental Cup match between Tenerife and Guaros de Lara.[3]
