Agrupación Deportiva Almería was a Spanish football club based in Almería, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded in 1971, it held home matches at Estadio Municipal Juan Rojas, with a 13,468-seat capacity.

History[edit]

In only two years, AD Almería promoted from newly created Segunda División B to La Liga, finishing ninth in its debut season in the latter. The club had been founded just eight years earlier.

In 1982, however, due to severe economic problems, the team was forced to fold, being replaced in the city by UD Almería, which would also appear in the top flight, in the 2000s.
