Valencia Féminas CF, previously AD DSV Colegio Alemán, is a Spanish women football team from Valencia. A modest club founded back in 1998 within the German School in Valencia (DSV), Colegio Alemán attained promotion to the Superliga Femenina for the 2007-08 season. Both in it and the following season the team ranked third from last, tightly avoiding relegation. On May 26, 2009 the club announced an agreement had been reached with Valencia CF to turn Colegio Aleman's teams into VCF's women section.[1]

On July 1 María Martí represented Valencia CF Femenino at the club's new kits presentation.[2] The refounded team debuted on September 6 with a 0-2 loss again local powerhouse Levante UD. The team ended the first stage of the newly reformed competition second to last in the 7 teams group. Classed in a less demanding group Valencia ended the second stage one spot higher, equivalent to an overall 18th position among 22 teams, with 28 points from 7 wins, 4 draws and 13 losses.

Valencia improved significantly next year. Ending the first group in the 4th spot, just 3 points short from qualifying to the title contenders group, Valencia topped its group in the second stage, ending the season in an overall 10th position with 17 wins in 28 matches. With this result Valencia qualified for the Copa de la Reina for the first time in its history. They were defeated by Real Sociedad in the first round on the away goals rule.

Valencia had a bad start the following year, becoming the second team to lose the championship's first nine matches after Corderex La Antigua in 2004.[3] In January 2012, with Valencia standing in relegation positions with 3 wins and 1 draw in 18 matches, new coach Xavi Tamarit was sacked and replaced by Cristian Toro.[4] The team improved subsequently and won 7 of the next 15 matches to secure its spot in Primera in the second to last week.[5]
