Club Deportivo Alcoyano, S.A.D. is a Spanish football team based in Alcoy, in the autonomous community of Valencia. Founded in 1928 it plays in Primera Division RFEF – Group 2, holding home games in Estadio El Collao, with a 4,850-seat capacity. The team is also known by its name in Valencian, Alcoia.
A simile exists in Spanish which includes the name of this football club, "Tener mas moral que el Alcoyano" ("To have more morale than Alcoyano"). The phrase possibly originated in the 1950s, when Alcoyano were losing a game by 0–13 at home but never gave up, still trying hard to score at the end of the match. However, this is disputed by some historians, with the origins being somewhat unclear. The official anthem of the club is "La moral del Alcoyano" (Alcoyano moral), music by Miguel Peidro and Jaime Lloret and lyrics by Armando Santacreu. It was composed in 1979 for the 50th anniversary of the club. In 2004, coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the club, the music was modernized and the anthem performed by the singer Jose Zamora.
