Real Oviedo, S.A.D. is a historically important Spanishmarker football team from Oviedomarker. Founded on March 26, 1926, they were the first team from Asturiasmarker ever to play in the Primera División.

It is playing the 2009-2010 season in Segunda División B - Group 2, having been promoted from Tercera División.

They play in blue shirts and white shorts in the Nuevo Carlos Tartiere stadiummarker, which seats 30,500 spectators. The club has about 10,500 ticket holders; the average attendance during the regular season reaches 6,000 supporters.


Though they originally played in the Primera División shortly after its inception, the gap caused by the Civil War meant that the club could not push on from earlier successes. until the arrival of one of its greatest players, Tristán Esperanza. When La Liga play resumed in 1939, Real Oviedo were relegated to the second division, as their pitch was deemed unplayable — Franco's troops had used the stadium as an ammunition dump. For many years afterwards, Oviedo bounced between the Primera (38 seasons) and Segunda (32 seasons); their high point was qualifying for the UEFA Cup, while their low point was relegation to the Segunda B in 1978 for a single season.

Promoted to the Primera División in 1988, they remained there until the 2000–01 season, at one point finishing as high as sixth (in 1990-91). After being relegated from the Primera in 2002-03, Real Oviedo suffered severe economic troubles, which, when coupled with a profound lack of institutional support from the city's government, resulted in the team's inability to pay its players. Oviedo were then forced to drop all the way into the Tercera División the fourth division of the Spanish football league system, for the 2003-04 season. At this point the team nearly folded, but they recovered, regrouped, and were promoted to Segunda 'B' in 2004-05. However, they lasted only two seasons there and were again relegated to Tercera. They were promoted to the Segunda 'B' in 2008-09, beating Real Mallorca B in a play-off decided by a penalty shoot-out. The team's survival remains at risk due to its continuing financial difficulties.

In the all-time league table for the Spanish top division, Real Oviedo are in 16th place.
