Linares Club de Fútbol was a Spanish football club based in Linares, Jaén, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded in 1960 it disappeared 30 years later due to serious economic problems, and held home matches at Estadio Municipal de Linarejos, with a 10,000-seat capacity.


Founded in 1960, Linares reached the national leagues five years later. It would eventual play five seasons in the second division, four of those consecutive (1980–84), never finishing higher than 12th. From 1965–67, the club competed under the name Santana Linares Club de Fútbol.

After being relegated in the 1983–84 season, Linares played five out of its last six years in Segunda División B – created in 1977 as the new third level. Following the team's disappearance another club was founded in the city, CD Linares: in its 19 years of existence it appeared in seven seasons in the fourth division and eight in the third (seven consecutive), before folding in 2009.
