The Maccabi Haifa basketball team was one of the original eight teams to form the Israeli top division in the 1953-54 season. The 2012-13 season marked a new page for Maccabi Haifa. The Greens returned to their newly renovated Romema Arena with a 5,000 seating capacity, making it the second largest indoor arena in Israel. The fans came back to the gates as the team featured an impressive roster including Gal Mekel, Donta Smith, Pat Calathes, James Thomas, Paul Stoll and many others. The Greens reached the Israeli State Cup Final, and led until the last minutes of the game, before the Yellows from Maccabi Tel Aviv stormed back to win the game. Maccabi Haifa finished in second place in the league, after a dramatic come-from-behind victory over Hapoel Eilat in the last regular season game. The Greens steamrolled through Gilboa Galil in the quarterfinals sweeping the series 3-0, and edged Hapoel Eilat in the decisive fifth game of the semifinals, setting a new attendance record of 4,800 Green fans at Romema Arena. The Israeli Super League Final game was held at Romema Arena for the first time and the fans broke another attendance record, selling out the 5,000 seat arena. The Greens played an inspiring game in the Final, defeating powerhouse Maccabi Tel Aviv, 86-79, to win their first championship in franchise history.
