CD Transportes Alcaine, known as CD Prainsa Zaragoza for sponsorship reasons, is a Spanish women's football team from Zaragoza playing in Primera División.

History[edit]

CD Transportes Alcaine was founded in 2002 after carrier company Transportes Alcaine bought Inter Aragón, which played in the lower categories. By 2005 the new team reached Superliga Femenina, Spain's top league.[1] After Grupo Prainsa became the main sponsor in 2007, the team consolidated itself in the first half of the table.

In 2009 they enjoyed their best season to date, ending 5th and playing the 2009 Copa de la Reina final. In subsequent seasons the team has ranged between the 6th and 9th positions, but in 2013 they reached their second Cup final. They lost both by a 4 goals margin - 1-5 to RCD Espanyol in 2009 and 0-4 to FC Barcelona in 2013.[2]
