Cáceres Ciudad del Baloncesto, also named as Cáceres Patrimonio de la Humanidad for sponsorship reasons, is a professional basketball team based in Cáceres, Extremadura, Spain. It plays in the LEB Oro, the second in importance in Spain after ACB League.

This club must be not confused with Cáceres Club Baloncesto, the former elite team in the city, which was dissolved in 2005.

History[edit]

Cáceres Ciudad del Baloncesto was founded in 2007 as a merger of two teams from Cáceres city:

  • San Antonio
  • Ciudad de Cáceres

Cáceres played the first season in its history (2007–08) in LEB Plata after buying the berth to CEB Llíria. In this first year, playing as Cáceres 2016, the team achieved the promotion semifinals but, after beating CajaRioja in the quarterfinalis series, lost against CB Illescas in the semifinal played at Cáceres.

After this season, the team joined the second tier, the LEB Oro, after achieving the vacant of Palma Aqua Màgica. Cáceres continues playing in LEB Oro until nowadays, where reached two times in a row the promotion playoffs but failed in the quarterfinals: in 2010 versus Ford Burgos and in 2011 versus Blu:sens Monbús, both times by 3–1.

In 2012 the club won for the first time a LEB Oro quarterfinal serie, 3–2 to Ford Burgos, but failed in the semifinal against Club Melilla Baloncesto after five games. Same happened in 2013, when the club advanced to semifinals after defeating CB Breogán by 2–3 in the quarterfinals and failing 3–1 against River Andorra.

In 2013 the club opted by joining the LEB Plata again due to economic issues. On April 25, 2015, two years after its resign to play in LEB Oro, Cáceres came back to the league after winning the 2014–15 LEB Plata, by defeating CEBA Guadalajara 67–63 in the last game of the regular season.[1]

The 2018–19 season is its fourth straight season in LEB Oro and ninth overall.
