Granada Club de Fútbol B is a Spanish football club based in Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded in 1947, it is the reserve team of Granada CF and currently plays in Segunda División B – Group 4, holding home games at Estadio Miguel Prieto, with a capacity for 2,500 spectators.

Unlike the English League, reserve teams in Spain play in the same football pyramid as their senior team, rather than a separate league. However, reserve teams cannot play in the same division as the main squad.

Reserve teams are also no longer permitted to enter the Copa del Rey. Additionally, only under-23 players or under-25 players with a professional contract can switch between senior and reserve teams.

History[edit]

Founded in 1947 as Recreativo de Granada, the team achieved a host of promotions and went on to feature several seasons in Tercera División.

On 30 June 2013, Granada B finally achieved his first promotion to Segunda División B, after a 1–2 defeat against Extremadura UD.[1]
