Maccabi Tel-Aviv

Maccabi Tel-Aviv is an Israeli basketball team from Tel Aviv. The club was founded in 1932 as part of Maccabi's association, which was founded in 1906. In 1977 Maccabi won the European trophy for the first time and became a champion. The country where the game was held in, was Yugoslavia, a communist country which had no diplomatic relations with Israel. Therefore, Maccabi's plane was the first Israeli plane that landed in Yugoslavia.

Maccabi Tel Aviv took the israeli trophy 41 times and was the champion in basketball 51 times.

Maccabi Tel Aviv is a team with fighting spirit, that never give up and in my opinion it is one of the best team in Europe.
