Club Atlético Tetuán was a Spanish football club based in Tétouan, Spanish protectorate of Morocco. The club played a single season in La Liga in 1951-52, after winning the Segunda División Southern Zone in 1950-51.[1] This ended in relegation after finishing last of 16 teams.[2]

Following Morocco's independence in 1956 the team's players and directors relocated to the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. The clubs directors decided to merge the club with local club Sociedad Deportiva Ceuta (1932 - 1956), becoming Club Atlético de Ceuta and eventually merging into AD Ceuta. The club inherited Atlético Tetuán's federative rights and was legally Atlético Tetuán's successor. AD Ceuta dissolved in 2012.
