Club de Fútbol Fuenlabrada, S.A.D. is a Spanish football team based in Fuenlabrada, in the autonomous community of Madrid. Founded in 1975 it plays in Segunda División, holding home matches at Estadio Fernando Torres, with a capacity of 6,000 seats.

History[edit]

Fuenlabrada was founded in 1975 as a merge between CF San Esteban and AD Fuenlabrada. The idea came from the mayor of the city, Regino Benítez, who suggested the directors of both clubs can unite their efforts and by this receive a higher municipal grant.[1] In 1986, the team first promoted to Tercera Division. They bounced between that and Segunda Division B for the next 30 years. For the 1997-98 season, the club made infusions of certain amounts of money to hire a new coach Eduardo Caturla and new players in order to get back to Segunda Devisión. However, Fuenlabrada finished only in 9th position in the Segunda División B.[1]

The team had its best result in the Copa del Rey in 2017–18, reaching the last 32 through a bye and wins over Mérida AD and CD Calahorra. In a two-game tie with European champions Real Madrid, the side lost 4–2 on aggregate, having drawn the second leg 2–2 away at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.[2]

Fuenlabrada played at La Aldehuela before moving into the Estadio Fernando Torres in August 2011, named after a Spanish international forward born in the town but who did not represent the club.[3][4] The 2016-17 season was quite successful for Fuenlabrada. The club finished in 3rd position in the Segunda División B. In that season Fuenlabrada reached promotion playoffs to Segunda División for the second time in its history. But the club lost both matches 0-1 to CF Villanovense.[1]

On 2 June 2019, Fuenlabrada were promoted for the first time ever to Segunda División by defeating Recreativo de Huelva 4–1 on aggregate in the play-offs.[5] Ten days later, the club took the Segunda B title with a 2–1 aggregate win over Racing de Santander.[6]
