Real Burgos Club de Fútbol is a Spanish football team based in Burgos, in the autonomous community of Castile and León. Founded in 1983, it ceased to compete in 1996 and returned in 2011, holding home games at Campo José Manuel Sedano.
Burgos CF was founded in 1936, also known as Gimnástica Burgalesa Club de Fútbol. In 1983, the club disappeared due to serious economic problems and the reserve team, Burgos Promesas, was renamed Real Burgos Club de Fútbol.
From 1990 to 1993, the club managed three La Liga campaigns, with a 9th place in its second season. This was the golden era of the club, as it received the nickname of Matagigantes (Killers of giants), as the club defeated Real Madrid and earned points away against Barcelona and Atlético Madrid.
In 1994, Real Burgos was relegated to the fourth tier due to the debts owed to its players. It did not enter any competition for the 1994–95 season, being readmitted in the league for the 1995–96 season. After this season, the club definitively ceased in activity until 2011, when Real Burgos returned to competition, taking part in the Provincial League of Burgos.
In 2018, Real Burgos sued the Castile and León Football Federation, claiming for a place in Tercera División alleging irregularities in the announcement of the fixtures during the last rounds of the 2017–18 season. Finally, the place was not given and Real Burgos did not enter any competition as they were later expelled from the Regional Preferente. In May 2019, the judge of a court in Majadahonda ordered the club's reinstatement in the Tercera División.
