Club Atlético de Madrid B is a Spanish football team based in Madrid, in the community of Madrid. Founded in 1966, it is the reserve team of Atlético Madrid and currently plays in Tercera División. They play their home games at Cerro del Espino Stadium.


The club was founded in 1966 as Reyfra Atlético Club. In 1970 it absorbed Aviaco Madrileño CF, which was established in 1967 when Madrileño CF (1956–67) and AD Aviaco merged, became affiliated with Atlético Madrid and changed its name to Atlético Madrileño Club de Fútbol.

In 1991 the name changed to Atlético Madrid B. Having already played from 1980–86 in Segunda División, the reserves fluctuated between that level and Segunda División B – created in 1977 as the new third division – in the following decades. In the 1998–99 season the team, which featured Rubén Baraja, future Valencia CF and Spain star in central midfield, finished in second position in division two, but was ineligible for La Liga promotion, so CD Numancia gained the automatic promotion slot instead.

The entire 2000s were spent in the third level, but several players continued to make the transition to the first team, including the likes of David de Gea, Álvaro Domínguez, Antonio López, Gabi, Mario Suárez, Koke and Ignacio Camacho.
