Amorebieta was founded in 1925 after the disappearance of Sociedad Deportiva Beti-Arin (founded on 2 December 1923). The Zornotzarra club, alongside 21 other clubs in Biscay, joined the Biscayan Football Federation.

In the 1926–27 season, the club made an outstanding campaign in his second competitive year. It had as its main rival FBC Durango, who finished in the top position after a tiebreaker match, after both teams totalled 14 points in the season. Despite finishing second, Amorebieta clinched the first promotion of its history, rising one step inside the Biscayan Regional category to play, the next year, in the Preferente C division.

In 1962–63, Amorebieta played in the semi-finals of the Spanish Amateur Championship against Real Madrid's farm team, losing 0–2 in Vallecas and managing a 2–2 draw in the second leg, thus being eliminated.
