Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC

Formed: 1927
Nickname: Ha'adumim (The Reds)

UEFA club competition honours
• None

Domestic honours (most recent triumph in brackets)
• League title: 12 (2010)
• Israeli Cup: 13 (2010)

• Known as Hapoel Allenby Tel-Aviv FC until a merger with other local sides in 1927, Hapoel Tel-Aviv won four league titles in Palestine and have clinched another seven since the creation of Israel in 1948.

• Hapoel played at various venues in the city before Canadian millionaire Leopold Bloomfield donated money to upgrade the Bassa Stadium as a permanent home to both themselves and local rivals Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC in 1958 – the year after Hapoel's first Israeli title. A further five were accrued over the ensuing 30 years before, a season after their 1988 triumph, financial struggles condemned Hapoel to top-flight relegation for the first time.

• The arrival of a new four-man consortium and Dror Kashtan as coach led to a State Cup victory in 1999 and the domestic double the following year. Hapoel then spread their wings on the European stage, beating Chelsea FC and Parma FC en route to the 2001/02 UEFA Cup quarter-finals, where they lost 2-1 on aggregate to AC Milan.

• The 2004/05 campaign was one of transition, three coaches attempting to follow in Kashtan's footsteps. Shiye Feigenbaum eventually steered them clear of the drop but it was not until Yitzhak Schum came to the helm that the wait for silverware was ended with the 2007 State Cup. A miserable 2007/08 UEFA Cup group stage did little to rekindle the club's expectations but the appointment of Eli Gutman signalled a changing of the tide.

• Hapoel avoided relegation and reached the State Cup final only to be defeated by double winners Beitar Jerusalem FC, then finished the following campaign as Ligat Ha'Al runners-up to seal a place in the inaugural UEFA Europa League. Ended the 2009/10 season as Israeli double winners.
