CD Reus was founded on 23 November 1909 after the dissolution of Reus Sport Club. On 29 September 1917, the club merged with Club Velocipedista and SC Olímpia becoming the multi-sports club Reus Deportiu.
In 1951, Reus Deportiu was restructured into two independent entities: CF Reus Deportiu, entirely dedicated to football, and Reus Deportiu, supporting the other sports , roller hockey being the most well known.
In 2015, the club reached the round of 32 of the 2015–16 Copa del Rey, where it was defeated by Atlético Madrid. In that season, the club also qualified to the promotion play-offs, this time as champion of the Segunda División B Group 3. In the first leg, Reus beat Racing de Santander by 3–0 away, and achieved the first promotion ever to Segunda División after a 1–0 home win in the second leg, played on 29 May 2016.
On 18 January 2019, the LFP suspended the rights of Reus to continue competing in La Liga and ten days later the club was expelled from the competition for three years plus a fine of €250,000 due to the nonpayment of players' salaries.
