UP Langreo was founded on 4 July 1961, after the merge of local teams CP La Felguera and Racing de Sama, which had a fierce rivalry. The merge was made with the aim of overcoming from the rivalry between Sama and La Felguera not only in football, but in all areas.
In its first season, Langreo achieved promotion to Segunda División, where it played during eight seasons out of the next ten years. Since its second relegation from Segunda to Tercera División, the club always played between Tercera and Segunda División B, the new third tier created in 1977, where UP Langreo played for the first time in its inaugural season.
Since that year, Langreo continues playing alternatively between Segunda División B and Tercera División.
In 2018, Langreo qualified for the Copa del Rey thus ending with an 18-year absence in the competition, the largest in the club's history.
Since its foundation, Langreo plays in Estadio Ganzábal. Entirely renovated in 2006, it has capacity for 4,024 spectators.
