HistoryEdit

Football became of interest in Algeciras at the end of the 19th century from the British colony of Gibraltar. In their early years the teams of the city played in several sand fields around the city; one of these provisional camps was located near the fairgrounds of the city El Calvario. This field was the first in where Algeciras CF played its matches.[1] The club was officially founded in 1912 and played its first game against Alexandra from Gibraltar, which was ended up in a 0:0 tie.[1]
