HistoryEdit

The club was founded on September 23, 1955 with José Alejandro Arenas Molina as its first president.[3] Móstoles made its first appearance in the country's third division in 1990–91, 35 years after its formation. It only lasted one season, however, and went on to amass a further four presences in that category in the following two decades, never lasting more than two seasons.

The club suffered relegation from the fourth level at the end of the 2011–12 campaign, thus returning to the regional championships. It folded shortly after, due to an overall debt of €234,591 owed to its players from 2011–12 and previous seasons. Every player from the 2011-12 season sued the club for wages unpaid. The players won the lawsuit.[4][5][6]
