Club Baloncesto Tizona S.A.D., more commonly known as Universidad de Burgos by sponsorship reasons, is a professional basketball team based in Burgos, Castilla y León and plays in the Polideportivo El Plantío. The team currently plays in Liga EBA.
CB Tizona was the name of the main club in Burgos during the 1970s and the 1980s, and was created as a Sociedad Anónima Deportiva with the aim to make easier a future promotion to ACB, goal achieved in its first season. Named Ford Burgos like its predecessor, the club promoted to Liga ACB in the 2013-14 season and did not fulfill all the necessary requirements to enter in the top flight, joining again the LEB Oro league.
In its second season, Tizona promoted again to Liga ACB, this time as LEB Oro champion, after winning its last 13 games in a row. Despite it was the third time in a row Burgos had a team which promoted to the top league, it could not fulfill the requirements to join it.
After failing in its second attempt, the club sued the ACB for not admitting it in the league and decided not entering any competition with the professional LEB Oro team. and continued its activity with the youth teams. The team that acted as reserve teams in the previous seasons, became the main senior team and played in Primera División. Tizona also changed its traditional blue uniform to a red-and-white one for the 2015-16 season, but came back to the blue in the next one for playing in Liga EBA, after its promotion as champions of the Regional group of Primera División.
