HistoryEdit

The team was founded in 2007.[2] In 2011 the club promoted to the Second Division.[3] In the 2011–12 season, the team promoted to the top tier TBL.[3] In 2012, Royal Halı (a Turkish carpet producer) became head sponsor of the team and the team was re-named to Royal Halı Gaziantep. After the 2015–16 season, the team had financial problems after Royal Halı withdrew and was forced to leave the top tier.[4] After all, the team was able to stay alive and play in the TBL.[5]
