Lorca Atlético Club de Fútbol was a Spanish football team based in Lorca, in the Region of Murcia. Founded in 2010, it held its home games at the Estadio Francisco Artés Carrasco, with a capacity of 8,120 seats. The club was relegated to Preferente Autonómica for not paying its players and disappeared in August 2012.

History[edit]

In July 2010 Cristóbal Sánchez Arcas, an entrepreneur from Lorca, Spain, bought Murcia-based club Sangonera Atlético CF and moved it to his city.[1][2] It started competing professionally in the third division.

In June 2012, Lorca Atlético was doubly relegated: after finishing the season in 16th position, it suffered a further drop to the regional championships for failing to pay its players.[3]
