Hércules Club de Fútbol "B", S.A.D. is a Spanish football club located in Alicante. In 2011–12 they play in the Regional Preferente – Group 4 (fifth category of Spanish football), and are the reserve team of Hércules CF.

Unlike in England, reserve teams in the Spain play in the same football pyramid as their senior team rather than a separate league. However, reserve teams cannot play in the same division as their senior team. Therefore, the team is ineligible for promotion to La Liga, the division in which the A-team currently plays. Reserve teams are also no longer permitted to enter the Spanish Cup.


The first reserve football team of Hércules CF was Alicante CF in the 1960s. Then in 1974, the Hércules Atlético (Hércules Athletic) who ran until the early 1980s. After the disappearance of the subsidiary, again in the 1980s created the Hércules Promesas (Hércules Promises) with which it was decided after several seasons away. In the 1990s it became a subsidiary agreements clubs Mutxamel CF and Español San Vicente. In 1996 he returned to create a subsidiary itself, this time called Hércules B that lasts until today.
