Algeciras Club de Futbol is a Spanish football team based in Algeciras, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded in 1912 it plays in Primera Division RFEF – Group 2, holding home matches at Estadio Nuevo Mirador.
Football became of interest in Algeciras at the end of the 19th century from the British colony of Gibraltar. In their early years the teams of the city played in several sand fields around the city; one of these provisional camps was located near the fairgrounds of the city El Calvario. This field was the first in where Algeciras CF played its matches. The club was officially founded in 1912 and played its first game against Alexandra from Gibraltar, which was ended up in a 0:0 tie.
In 1956, the club merged with UD Espana to form Espana de Algeciras CF before switching back to Algeciras CF in the following year.
Estadio Nuevo Mirador seats 7,500 spectators. Its opening took place in 1999, with a friendly with Real Betis.
