Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia Club de Fútbol was founded in 1999 and had previously a team which played in Tercera División from 2000 to 2005. In parallel was founded in 2004 the Club de Fútbol Los Garres, making its first appearance in Tercera División in 2008–09 as Murcia Deportivo Club de Fútbol. In 2009 a businessman from Beniaján, Murcia, acquired the club and moved it to his local town; one year later the club relocated again, now to Sangonera la Verde, and, in 2011, UCAM became its new owner.
At the end of the 2011–12 season, after Orihuela suffered relegation from Segunda División B due to irregularities, UCAM Murcia took its place. After suffering relegation, the club bounced back to the third level immediately, and achieved a respectable second place in his group during the 2014–15 campaign; it missed out promotion in the play-offs, after being knocked out by Bilbao Athletic B, which would later achieve promotion.
Universidad Católica de Murcia Club de Fútbol’s highest home attendance is 5,530 in a 2016–17 Segunda División match against Cádiz. The club’s two main supporters groups are Los T-UCAM who were founded in 2015 and Los Blue Gold who were founded in 2016.
Universidad Católica de Murcia Club de Fútbol’s main rivals are their city rivals Real Murcia. It is a very new derby in Spanish football with the first match between the two teams taking place during the 2015–16 Segunda División B.The tension between the two clubs started in 2015 when the club moved into the old stadium of Real Murcia, the Estadio de La Condomina. Many Real Murcia supporters resent the fact the younger, less prestigious club have quickly rose through the Spanish lower leagues and have overtaken them with help from the financial backing of José Luis Mendoza Pérez.
