HistoryEdit

In 1927 the Sport Club Turista was founded, being renamed the Club Turista nine years later. In 1988 a merge was predicted with the Gran Peña FC, but finally the Turista was absorbed by the Celta de Vigo, being named the Celta Turista; the Gran Peña continued competing in the following decades as an independent club.

In its first season of professional football, the Celta Turista played in the Preferente Autonómica, finishing in first position with 57 points. It first reached the third division in 1992–93, being relegated the following campaign; in 1996, in order to comply with the new Royal Spanish Football Federation regulations, the club changed its denomination to the Celta de Vigo B. Then in the 1996-97 season the club finished in the 19th position in Segunda División B and relegated back to Tercera.[3]

In the 2018-19 season Celta B was close to relegation, but saved its place in Segunda División B. The club finished 16th among 20 teams.[4]
