Early years[edit]

Main article: Burgos CF (I)

Burgos CF was founded in 1922, also known as Gimnástica Burgalesa Club de Fútbol. In 1983, the side disappeared due to serious economic problems and the reserve team, Burgos Promesas, was renamed Real Burgos Club de Fútbol.

The side participated three seasons in the national top flight but, shortly after its 1993 relegation, ceased in activity, and Burgos CF was immediately refounded.

1994–present: Re-foundation[edit]

In 1994, the new Burgos CF started to play in Primera Provincial, sixth tier, with Félix Arnaiz as head coach. Arnaiz would reach the Tercera División after two consecutive promotions. In 1997 the club promoted for the first time to Segunda División B. After a doubtful first year, where the club avoided the relegation in the last weeks of the competition, Burgos CF started to qualify to the promotion play-offs to Segunda División. It would be in 2001, in its third try, when the club would reach its target after defeating Sabadell, Ceuta and Ourense in the play-offs.

In the 2000–01 season, with Enrique Martín as head coach, Burgos would finish in the 16th position but they would be relegated to Segunda División B due to the no-conversion of the club into a Sociedad Anónima Deportiva.[1]

After this administrative relegation Burgos would continue playing in Segunda División B, being very close to promote in the 2007 play-offs, where they were beaten by Sevilla Atlético in the extra time of the last round. One year later, the club would be relegated to Tercera División after failing to beat CF Palencia in the last round. The match finished a draw that relegated both teams.[2]

Burgos would spend three seasons in Tercera División after its promotion in the 2011 playoffs, where they beat UD Lanzarote by 4–0 in the second leg played at El Plantío. The promotion was followed by a disastrous campaign in the 2012–13 Segunda División B where the club finished as last qualified of the Group 1.

Only one year later, Burgos CF promoted again to the third tier by beating CD El Palo 3–2 in the second leg of the 2013 play-offs.[3]
