History

Alicante Club de Fútbol, under another denomination, saw the light of day in 1918, joining the Valencian Football Federation five years later, with Joaquín Tomás Terol being its first official president. The team spent the vast majority of its early existence in Tercera División, also having very brief spells in the second division (1939–40 - as Alicante Football Club - 1951–52 and 1956–58). For eight years in the 60's, it also acted as neighbours Hércules CF's feeder club.

In the 2000's, the club firmly established itself as one of the third level's strongest sides, only to consecutively miss promotion in the playoffs. In 2007–08, Alicante returned once again to the second category. Also in that season, it valliantly exited in the fourth round of the Spanish Cup, after a 2–3 aggregate loss against La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid.

Facing severe economic problems, Alicante club produced a respectable first part of the season in the second division campaign, but was eventually relegated back.

These economic problems remained until the 2010–11 season were Alicante were relegated to Tercera División on 1 July 2011, for not paying their players on time.
