About CD Alcoyano

Club Deportivo Alcoyano is a List of football clubs in Spain based in Alcoy (Spain), in the autonomous community of Valencian Community. Founded in 1929, it plays in Segunda División, holding home games in Estadio El Collao, with a 5,000-seat capacity. The team is also known by its name in Valencian: Alcoià.

A simile exists in Spanish language which includes the name of this football club, "Tener más moral que el Alcoyano" ("To have more morale than Alcoyano"). The phrase possibly originated in the 1950s, when Alcoyano were losing a game by 0–13 at home but never gave up, still trying hard to score at the end of the match. However, this is disputed by some historians, with the origins being somewhat unclear.

History

Club Deportivo Alcoyano saw the light in 1929, after a merger between two clubs in the city, Levante and Racing. However, it only joined the Royal Spanish Football Federation four years later.

In 1942, the club first reached the Segunda División, going on to alternate between that level and the La Liga in the subsequent years. Their debut in the latter took place with a 2–3 home loss against Real Murcia, in an eventual 1945–46 La Liga, as second from bottom.

In 1947–48 La Liga, Alcoyano maintained its first division status for the only time in its history, even finishing higher than Real Madrid C.F.. The following forty years, however, were spent mainly in the Segunda División B and Tercera División, with very brief spells in level two.

Alcoyano returned to the third category for 2004–05 Tercera División, consistently reached the promotion play-offs, and consistently failed to be promoted. In the 2005–06 season, the team also had 2005–06 Copa del Rey in the Copa del Rey, beating RCD Mallorca 4–1 and losing by just one goal (0–1) in the fourth round against Atlético Madrid.

In June 2011, 42 years after, Alcoyano finally returned to the second division, after 2010–11 Segunda División B in the Season (sports) Regular season, and disposing of Real Madrid Castilla, SD Eibar and CD Lugo in the 2010–11 Segunda División Play-Off.
