Atletico Baleares

Club Deportivo Atletico Baleares, S.A.D. (Catalan: Club Esportiu Atletic Balears) is a Spanish football team based in Palma, Majorca, in the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. Founded on 1920, it currently plays in the Primera Division RFEF – Group 2, hosting games at Estadio Balear with a capacity of 6,000 seats.

History

The history of the entity was for many years without work and without any reference work. That is why, due to inertia and tradition, the origin of the club is still located in 1942, although in recent times the origin of 1920 was proven documentary, increasingly known and accepted.

The precedents (I): Mecanico (1920)

On 3 April 1920 an article about the foundation of new soccer teams in Palma appeared in the Ultima Hora newspaper, until then created by fans of middle and upper social class. The following sentence stood out in the text:

For the first time, a workers extraction group formed a team, in charge of the company's workers Islena Maritima, although naval machinists also participated in practices or students of this career.
