Bnei Herzliya (Hebrew: בני הרצליה‎, lit. Sons of Herzliya), also known as Bnei Rav-Bariach Herzliya for sponsorship reasons, is a professional basketball club based in Herzliya, in central Israel. The club plays in Israeli National League, the second division of Israeli basketball.[1]

History[edit]

The club was created by the merge of Maccabi Ra'anana and Bnei Hasharon in 2002. The merge has been made because of Maccabi Ra'anana's financial problems and Bnei Hasharon's relegation.

At the end of 2010–11 season, the merge ended and the team started playing only for the city of Herzliya.

Sponsorship names[edit]

Due to sponsorship reasons, the club has been known as:

  • Bnei Rav-Bariach Herzliya (2017–present) - sponsored by Rav-Bariach (08) Industries Ltd., an Ashkelon-based door manufacturing company.
