Talavera CF was founded in 1948, spending its first 34 years of existence fluctuating between the regional leagues and the fourth division. In 1982, it reached level three for the first time ever, going on to last four years in the category.
In 1993, Talavera returned to division three, for a much longer spell (15 seasons, with two unsuccessful promotion playoff appearances), being relegated at the end of the 2007–08 campaign. In August 2010, shortly before the beginning of the new season, in a special meeting, the club was dissolved due to overwhelming financial problems, owing wages to both players and managers from several seasons, with the club having a debt of more than €2 million; its place was taken by Tomelloso CF.
