History

The club was founded in 1962 by Ramon Sitjà as CB Sant Josep. In 1989 it became the Anonymous Sport Association (SAD). In 1987, when the ACB was enlarged to 24 teams, CB Girona entered the first division. In 1991, the club had to buy the rights of the CB Granollers to stay in the ACB as they were going to be relegated to the second division.

In 2007, Girona won the FIBA EuroCup championship, which was hosted at Palau Girona-Fontajau arena. They beat Azovmash Mariupol in the final after having beaten Adecco Estudiantes in the semifinals.

After the end of the 2007-2008 season, CB Girona suffered serious economic problems, with a debt of over €6 million euros. On July 25, 2008, the club announced that it would not participate in the 2008-2009 ACB season of the Spanish ACB League or in the 2008-09 ULEB Cup season of the ULEB Cup [1]. CB Girona changed its name to CB Sant Josep Girona and began playing in Adecco Bronce, the fourth level Spanish division.

"Girona a l'ACB" platform

Girona a l'ACB demonstration with over 1,100 people (Girona, June 8, 2008).

"Girona a l'ACB" platform (translated from Catalan: Girona in ACB) was created on May 23, 2008, by CB Girona fans. Its purpose was to support the team and the club so they could get rid of the debt and continue playing in the top Spanish division the next year. A website was created for that [2] (Catalan) (Spanish), and there were more than 10,500 signatures collected. Some protests were also made, like a demonstration with over 1,100 people, a basketball match in front of the city hall and a sit-down protest, amongst other actions. 300 t-shirts were also sold.
