Hapoel Gilboa Galil (Hebrew: הפועל גלבוע גליל‎) is a professional basketball club that is based in north-east Israel. The club plays its home domestic league games in a 2,500-seat stadium in Gan Ner, and is coached by Sharon Drucker.


The club was founded in 2008 by a merger of Hapoel Gilboa (which had previously been merged with Hapoel Afula, who regained their independence) and Hapoel Galil Elyon.[1] The club took Hapoel Galil Elyon's place in the Super League, the top division of Israeli basketball. The merger agreement had originally been to play 70% of the club's home domestic league games in Gan Ner 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.[1]

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.
