Club Deportivo Mirandés is a Spanish football team based in Miranda de Ebro, Province of Burgos, in the autonomous community of Castile and León. Founded on 3 May 1927 it plays in Segunda División,[2][3] holding home matches at Estadio Municipal de Anduva.


Mirandés' origins can be traced to the beginnings of the 20th century, with clubs such as El Deportivo Mirandés (1917), Sporting Club Mirandés (1919), Deportivo SC (1919) and Miranda Unión Club (1922) all being its predecessors. Club Deportivo was founded as such on 3 May 1927, playing its first game on 4 June in the Saint John of the Mountain Festival, against Arabarra, winning 1–0 courtesy of a Fidel Angulo goal; the team's first president was Arturo García del Río, with the organization's initial capital consisting of 666 shares of 15 pesetas each.

Mirandés' first squad

From 1944–77 Mirandés competed in Tercera División, with the exception of three seasons spent in the regional leagues.[4] The debut in Tercera división took place on September 24, 1944, with the 2:2 match against Vasconia from San Sebastián.[5]

One of the best Mirandés campaigns during these years was in the 1957-58 season, when under the presidency of Andrés Espallargas and with Juan Malón as a coach, the club finished in the 2nd position in Tercera división.[5]

In 1977–78 it moved to the newly created Segunda División B, lasting five years, twice unsuccessful in the promotion playoffs. On 28 December 1977 the team faced Mario Kempes and Valencia CF at home in the Copa del Rey, losing 2–4;[6] future Real Madrid player and La Liga manager Miguel Ángel Portugal played with the team during this decade.

In 1986, Mirandés was one of the founders of the La Rioja Football Federation. Three years later, the club won its first major trophy, conquering the fourth level championship under 23-year-old manager Juan Manuel Lillo.[7] The team went on to fluctuate between divisions three and four in the following years, again experiencing the odd visit to the regional levels (two seasons).

Mirandés returned to the third division in the 2008–09 campaign, following two seasons in which the club finished the regular season top of the table only to fall short in the playoffs. In the decisive match, the team won against Jerez Industrial CF 3–2 at home (4–2 on aggregate).[8]

In 2011–12, Mirandés started the league with a run of 833 minutes without conceding a goal, eventually losing its first match in the 18th game.[9] In the season's domestic cup, the club reached the semifinals – becoming the first third-tier team since UE Figueres's run in the 2001–02 edition to reach that stage – after disposing of top level sides Villarreal CF, Racing de Santander and RCD Espanyol.[10][11][12] Finally, the team was promoted for the first time ever to Segunda División, after defeating CD Atlético Baleares in the playoffs. In the 2012-13 season, first in the new category, the club managed to remain its place in Segunda División by finishing 15th among 22 teams.[13]

At the end of the 2016–17 season, Mirandés was relegated after spending five years in the second division. On 28 March 2019, Mirandés won the season's Copa Federación after beating Cornellà in the final. In the 2018-19 season the club finished 3rd in the Segunda División B, Group 2.[14] In the playoffs, Mirandes was again promoted to the Segunda División, after (again, like seven years ago) defeating CD Atlético Baleares.

On 5 February 2020, Mirandés beat Villareal CF 4–2 to reach the semifinals of the Copa del Rey for the second time in its history, previously defeating another two La Liga teams: RC Celta de Vigo and Sevilla FC.

General stand of Anduva

Mirandés plays home games at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. Owned by the Miranda de Ebro Town Hall, it was inaugurated on 22 January 1950, and has a capacity of 5,759 spectators (mostly seated), with a dimension of 105×68 meters of natural grass.[15]

Additionally, it also held other sporting events, most notably the under-21 match between Spain and Poland in 2006 (0–1).[16]

Prior to this stadium, the club played its matches in other settings. During its first year of life, it played at Campo de Kronne, which was located between the Carretera de Logroño and the Avenida República Argentina. The following year the team moved to another ground and, on 26 May 1928, the first game at Campo de La Estación took place, against Club Ciclista de San Sebastián, with the team remaining there until 1950.

Famous players[edit]
