Obradoiro Clube de Amigos do Baloncesto[1] (lit, Obradoiro Friends of Basketball Club), also known as Monbus Obradoiro for sponsorship reasons, is a professional basketball team based in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia. They currently compete in the ACB League.


Obradoiro in 2012.

Obradoiro CAB was founded in 1970 and started playing in the third division after acquiring the spot of the basketball section of SD Compostela. The could would promote for the first time to the Liga Nacional after finishing in the third position of the 1981-82 Primera División B.

Obradoiro played only the 1982-83 season in the top flight, where it only achieved two wins in 26 games.

2009-10 was its returning season to the Spanish top division, Liga ACB, after the Supreme Court conceded that the Júver Murcia committed improper alignment in a matchup in the 1990 promotion playoff. A horrible second half of the league, with only one win in 17 matches, caused the relegation to LEB Oro, the second division of Spanish basketball.

In the next season, Obradoiro came back to Liga ACB as runner-up of the 2010-11 LEB Oro season and also won its first national title: the Copa Príncipe de Asturias.

The 2012-13 ACB season was the best one in the history of the club. Obradoiro CAB finished the regular season in the eight position and joined the playoffs, where it was eliminated in the quarterfinals by the champion Real Madrid.
