C.F. Sporting Mahonés resulted from the merger of two other Mahon teams, Club Deportivo Menorca and Union Deportiva Mahon, in July 1974. They began life in the regional divisions of Balearic football before progressing to the Spanish Third Division in 1977-78.
On 24 January 2012 the team announced it was withdrawing from the Segunda División B – Group 3, in mid-season, due to the fact that practically all the professional squad had left the club. With debts of over 230,000 euros and a transfer embargo in place, the club could not raise a team for the remainder of the season. Their final game was a 0-6 defeat at Sant Andreu.
Between formation and 1978, Sporting played at two locations close to the centre of town, starting out at the former home of CD Menorca, the Campo Municipal de San Carlos. The following season saw the club play at the Estadio Mahonés, which had been the home of UD Mahón. More latterly home matches were played at the 3,000 seat capacity Estadio Bintaufa, situated to the south of the city, close to the Aeronautic Club.
