CF Villanovense was founded in 1992 with the aim to replace dissolved CD Villanovense. In the 2014–15 season, the club played for the first time the promotion play-offs to Segunda División, being eliminated in the first round by Bilbao Athletic.[1]

The following season, the team reached the last 32 of the Copa del Rey, where they faced reigning league, cup and European champions Barcelona. Despite holding the Catalans to a goalless draw in the first leg at home, they lost 6–1 on aggregate.[2]

In the 2016–17 season, Villanovense qualified again for the promotion play-offs, but after beating Fuenlabrada in the first round, they were eliminated by Racing de Santander.
