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.


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]
