Málaga CF Femenino is the women's football team of Spanish club Málaga CF. It currently plays in Segunda División.

History[edit]

Founded in 1992 as Club Atlético Málaga, they were one of the leading Spanish teams in the second half of the 1990s, and in 1998 they won both the national League and Cup. They are one of four Spanish teams that have won the double, the other ones being CD Oroquieta Villaverde in 1999, Levante UD in 2001 and 2002, and RCD Espanyol in 2006. However this golden era soon came to an end and they were relegated.

Atlético Málaga returned to the top-flight in 2008. In 2011 they narrowly avoided relegation,[1] but it was relegated in the next season.

On 9 June 2016, Málaga CF announced the club would be definitely integrated in the structure of the club.[2] Atlético Málaga had previously been wearing Málaga's kit during several years, despite not being an official section of the club.[3]

In May 2018, the club promoted to Primera División six years after their last relegation.
