Club Cantera Base 1939 Canarias S.A.D.,[1] also known as Iberostar Tenerife for sponsorship reasons, is a professional basketball team based in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Spain. The team plays in the Liga ACB and the Champions League. Their home arena is the Santiago Martín.

History

The team was founded in 1994, after old CB Canarias, with huge financial problems, merged with other teams of the island to create the new Tenerife Canarias, which only played two seasons in Liga EBA, when this league was the second tier in Spanish basketball.

People who were in disagreement with this merge created the new CB 1939 Canarias, which inherits the colors and the logo of the club. In 2012, Iberostar Canarias was promoted to Liga ACB after being the champion of LEB Oro, but the club couldn't actually promote due to the impossibility of obtaining the requirements requested by ACB.[2] One month later, on 20 July 2012, CB 1939 Canarias achieved the vacant berth in ACB after the league bought the spot of CB Lucentum Alicante.[3]

Alejandro Martínez, who was the head coach since 2003 and managed the team from LEB Plata, third tier, to Liga ACB, resigned in 2015.[4]

On 29 March 2017, Canarias qualified for the Basketball Champions League Final Four, just 36 years after its first promotion to the Liga Nacional.[5][6] The Final Four was played in their home court, and the team won the championship after beating Banvit in the Final. This championship meant the first major title in the club's history.

On 24 September 2017, Canarias participated in the 2017 FIBA Intercontinental Cup as champion of the Basketball Champions League. The club achieved this cup after beating Guaros de Lara by 76-71.
