Description:
Valencia Club de Fútbol Mestalla, or Valencia Club de Fútbol B is a Spanish football team based in Valencia, in the namesake community. Founded in 1944, it is the reserve team of Valencia CF, and currently plays in the third division, holding home games at Ciudad Deportiva de Paterna, with a 4,000-seat capacity.

Unlike in England, reserve teams in Spain play in the same football pyramid as their senior team rather than a separate league. However, reserve teams cannot play in the same division as their senior team. Therefore, the team is ineligible for promotion to La Liga, the division in which the main side plays. Reserve teams are also no longer permitted to enter the Copa del Rey.

The team is officially known as Valencia CF Mestalla on the club's official promotion and website, but Professional Football League rules prohibit B teams from having different names to their parent.

History

Founded in 1944, Valencia B managed to play in more than 20 second division seasons from 1947–73. In the 1951–52 season, the team finished in a best-ever second position in the league, but was ineligible for La Liga promotion as the first team was also playing in that level.

In the following decades, Valencia B played mainly in the fourth division, but also appeared 16 times in the third, eight of those consecutive (1992–2000), with three appearances in the promotion playoffs.
