Burgos CF History
Gimnástica Burgalesa Club de Ftbol was the original name of Burgos CF when it was established in 1922. The club went out of business in 1983 due to severe financial difficulties, and the name of the reserve team, Burgos Promesas, was changed to Real Burgos Club de Ftbol at that time.
The club ceased operations not long after it was demoted from the national top flight in 1993 and was immediately replaced by Burgos CF. The club had previously competed in the national top flight for three seasons.
With Félix Arnaiz at the helm as head coach, the brand-new Burgos CF made its debut in the Primera Provincial, the sixth and final tier, in the year 1994. Following two promotions in a row, Arnaiz would play in the Tercera División when his time came. The club earned its first promotion, all the way up to Segunda División B, in the year 1997. After a difficult first season, during which the club narrowly missed being demoted in the competition’s final weeks, Burgos CF began to improve their standings and began qualifying for the promotion play-offs to the Segunda División. After advancing through the play-offs with victories over Sabadell, Ceuta, and Ourense, the club finally accomplished its goal in the year 2001, which was the third time it had attempted to do so.
Burgos would finish 16th in the 2001–02 season with Enrique Martn serving as head coach; nevertheless, the team would be demoted to Segunda División B because the club did not convert into a Sociedad Anónima Deportiva during that season. Burgos had finished the season in 16th place.
After this administrative demotion, Burgos would continue to play in the Segunda División B, coming extremely close to promotion in the 2007 play-offs, when they were defeated by Sevilla Atlético in extra time of the last round. Burgos would continue to play in the Segunda División B. After failing to defeat CF Palencia in the championship round a year later, the team would be demoted to Tercera División, the second-tier league. Both sides were placed in the lower division as a result of the match ending in a tie.
Following their victory in the second leg of the play-offs against UD Lanzarote in 2011 at El Planto, Burgos were promoted to the Tercera División and would remain there for the next three seasons before moving up to the Primera Division. The promotion was followed by a terrible season in the Segunda División B in 2011–12, in which the club finished as the least qualified of the Group 1.
Only one year later, Burgos CF won the second leg of the 2013 play-offs against CD El Palo with a score of 3–2 and promoted back to the third tier of Spanish soccer.
One month after avoiding the relegation to Tercera División by winning Linares Deportivo in the play-offs, the assembly of Burgos CF approved the conversion of the club into Sociedad Anónima Deportiva on June 19, 2017, which was 16 years after the first unsuccessful attempt to convert the club 16 years earlier.
This objective would be accomplished by the club on April 6th, 2018.
The affiliation agreement between Burgos CF and CD Nuestra Seora de Belén was signed on June 4th, 2019, and outlines Burgos CF’s responsibilities as the club’s women’s football division.
Burgos won its group in the season 2020–21 and earned promotion to the second level after defeating Bilbao Athletic in the promotion play-off finals. This marked the club’s first appearance in the second division in nearly two decades.
