Sociedad Deportiva Huesca, S.A.D., is a Spanish football club based in Huesca, in the autonomous community of Aragon. Founded in 1960 it currently plays in Segunda División, holding home games at Estadio El Alcoraz, which seats 5,500 spectators.


In 1910 Huesca CF was born, with Santos Solana as president. 16 years later it folded – after it had joined the Royal Spanish Football Federation in 1922 – but in 1929 CD Huesca, being renamed Unión Deportiva in 1940, took its place, but the club again disappeared in 1956 due to financial problems. Lorenzo Lera was the first associate of the club, which was enrolled in the Federation with the blaugrana colours as its founding members were Barcelona supporters.

One of the first games of written reference was a local derby against Bosco FC, a 3–5 loss. In the mid-1920s the club turned professional and, in 1926, a match against Barcelona was played at the Villa Isabel, in a 2–2 draw; In 1951, Huesca first reached Segunda División.

On 29 March 1960 Sociedad Deportiva Huesca was born, first playing in Segunda División B in 1977. In 2006 the club finished second in the Copa Federación de España, losing to Puertollano; in that same season it narrowly avoided relegation to Tercera División, after a dramatic play-off against Castillo.

In the 2006–07 campaign the club reached the play-offs for promotion to the second level, having lost a two-legged final against Córdoba CF. In the following season, it returned to the "silver category".

2008–09's second division was a regular one for Huesca, with the new league status being maintained with many rounds left. Rubén Castro, loaned by Deportivo La Coruña, was one of the most important players during the campaign, scoring 14 times, ninth-best in the league.

Relegation followed at the end of the 2012–13 season, but the club returned to the Segunda División in 2015 after a first place finish and eventually a two-leg play-off victory over Huracán Valencia.
