Sporting Club de Huelva is a Spanish women's football club from Trigueros, Huelva. It was founded in Huelva in 2004 as a restructuring of an homonymous junior (men's) football club, which had been founded in 1979 and dissolved nine years later, by its original founder, Antonio Toledo, who has also served as the team's manager and sporting director.[2]


2006-07 Superliga match against Levante UD

Gaining promotion to the Superliga Femenina in just two seasons, Sporting Huelva debuted at the 2006–07 season. It has successfully avoided relegation for the past three seasons, actually ending the 2008–09 season just one point short for qualifying to the Copa de la Reina, losing the spot at the last matchday.[3]

Next year Sporting was third in their group in the first stage of the newly reformed competition, narrowly missing qualification for the title contenders group. The team ranked again 3rd in its group in the second stage, qualifying for the Copa de la Reina for the first time. They qualified for the quarter-finals, eliminating Atlético Madrid before being ousted by Torrejón.

Financial difficulties conditioned the club's 2010-11 season. Following a weak performance in the first stage the team managed to recover in the second half of the season and was 2nd in their group, but Sporting had to renounce taking part in the Copa de la Reina.[4]

Sporting chained four wins in the first weeks of the 2011-12 season, holding the lead of the table for the first time in its history.[5] As of the end of 2011 the team stood 4th with 9 wins in 15 games, but after a less successful second half the team ended in the 8th position, was anyway is its best result to date. During the Christmas break president José Antonio Muñoz announced Sporting was in negotiations to become Recreativo Huelva's women's team for the 2012-13 season,[6] but an agreement wasn't reached and Sporting was instead relocated to nearby Trigueros for the 2012–13 season.[7]

On May 17, 2015, Sporting de Huelva won its first national title after achieving the 2015 Copa de la Reina by defeating Valencia CF in the final match by 2–1.[8]
