Granada Club de Fútbol is a Spanish football team based in Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded in 1931, the club currently plays in Group 4 of the "Segunda División B". Their stadium is "Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes", with a capacity of 16,200.

History

"Granada Club de Fútbol" was founded on 14 April 1931. Its original name was "Recreativo de Granada" and the first president was Julio López Fernández.

The first football match was played against "Deportivo Jaén", with a 2-1 victory. The first goal in the match, and in the club's history, was scored by Antonio Bombillar.

In the 1931-1932 season, the club won the "Tercera Regional - Región Sur" championship.

After several promotions, in 1941-42 the club debuted in "La Liga". From here until the 80s, it alternated between the first and second levels, with its golden age coming during the 70s, with eight top flight seasons, which included a career-best two sixth league places (1971-72, 1973-74).

In 1959 it obtained its greatest sports landmark, being the runner-up of "Copa del Generalísimo" (now "Copa del Rey"). In the final match, played in Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, the team lost to FC Barcelona 4-1.

Also in the 1980s the team had some brief appearances in the second division, but it spent most of the seasons in "Segunda División B", dropping another level in 2002-03, due to the non-payment to its players, with the passivity of the local authorities and local businessmen.

After five seasons in the third division, former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz, along with son Francisco, arrive at the club. With their help, the Andalusia side is again promoted again to "Segunda B", and establishes the bases of its future: to be a professional club, with healthy finances, planning a return to the first division.

In 2007-2008, Granada played in Group IV of the third level.

Colours

Upon its foundation, club colours were a shirt with blue and white vertical stripes and white shorts.

At the end of the 1970s, the club changed the vertical to horizontal stripes to cheer the supporters. Since then, several changes (between horizontal and vertical) took place until 2004-2005, when in a member assembly it was decided to use horizontal stripes definitively.

The last kit used by Granada CF is:
*Main kit: Shirt with red and white horizontal stripes, blue shorts and white socks finished with a red line;
*Second kit: Shirt with blue and white horizontal stripes, blue (or white) shorts and white socks finished with a red line.

tadium

After its foundation the team played its local matches at "Campo de Las Tablas", inaugurated on 20 December 1931. The existence of this field ground is short because, on 23 December 1934, a new stadium was opened: "Estadio Los Cármenes". The club plays its local matches in this stadium until 1995 when a new facility, named "Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes", takes its place. It was inaugurated on 16 May 1995, with a capacity of 16.212 seats.
