Hapoel Ashkelon F.C. ( _he. מועדון כדורגל הפועל אשקלון, "Moadon Kaduregel Hapoel Ashkelon") is an Israeli football club based at the Sala Stadium in Ashkelon.


After being founded in 1955, Hapoel Ashkelon spent their first few decades in the lower leagues of Israeli football. In 1997, they were promoted to Liga Leumit (then the top division) as Liga Artzit champions. However, the club finished bottom of the division, with a points deduction. They were later relegated to the third tier (which became Liga Artzit following the formation of the Israeli Premier League as the top division in 1999), before returning to the second division (now Liga Leumit) in 2004. The club reached the State Cup final for the first time in 2007, but despite taking the lead, lost 5-4 on penalties to Hapoel Tel Aviv after a 1-1 draw. This also had an effect on their league play as the club was relegated to the Liga Artzit that very same year.
