HistoryEdit

In only two years, AD Almería were promoted from the newly created Segunda División B to La Liga, finishing ninth in their debut season in the latter. The club had been founded just eight years earlier.

In 1982, however, due to severe economic problems, the team was forced to fold, being replaced in the city by CP Almería and, in 1989, by UD Almería, which would also appear in the top flight, in the 2000s.
