History

Forerunners of Córdoba Club de Fútbol included names such as Sporting Fútbol Club de Córdoba, Sociedad Deportiva Electromecánicas and Racing Fútbol Club de Córdoba. The latter changed its name after the civil war (as foreign names were banned under the new regime) to Club Deportivo Córdoba.

From 1940, the club met varying success, spending most of its time in the second and third divisions of Spanish football. In 1944, it changed its home kit of green and white stripes, from the previous one of all white. The following year, Córdoba moved from Estadio America to Estadio del Arcángel. In the 1953–54 season, the club found itself in the third level, alongside CD San Álvaro de Córdoba. At the end of that campaign, the clubs merged.

In the early 60's and also in 1971–72, Córdoba amassed eight La Liga seasons; in its third presence, it only allowed two goals at home as it went undefeated, the first being courtesy of RCD Español's Alfredo di Stéfano. The club finished fifth, but was not allowed to play European competition due to city infrastructures issues.

In the following four decades, Córdoba again fluctuated between divisions two and three, also spending 1984–85 in the fourth.
