The club played in pale blue shirts and white shorts, and spent seven seasons in Segunda División in the 2000s.
Polideportivo Ejido was founded in 1969. After first reaching the fourth division in 1987, the club fluctuated between that and the third levels. From 1999–2001 it achieved two consecutive promotions, and would go on to have an uninterrupted seven-year spell in the second division.
On 29 October 2008, freshly relegated to division three, Poli trounced La Liga giants Villarreal CF 5–0 in the fourth round of the Spanish Cup, the first with teams from the top level (6–1 final aggregate). Two seasons later the two clubs met again in the tournament, but with a different outcome (3–1 on aggregate for the Valencian club).
Polideportivo Ejido was expelled from the third division competition midway through the 2011–12 season, after failing to report to two consecutive games. Overwhelmed by financial difficulties and without any players, the club folded soon afterwards.
