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.[3]

In 1982, however, due to severe economic problems, the team was forced to fold,[4] being replaced in the city by CP Almería and,[5] in 1989, by UD Almería, which would also appear in the top flight, in the 2000s.[6][7]
