The passion for Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa began on 5 August 1923. The team began a meteoric career. In just seven years, they won two regional trophies, qualified twice for the Copa del Rey and reached to the spanish 2nd Division. The economic crisis in 1931 and the Civil War in 1936 left without his club Leon.
After the war, the project was revived and in three years, came back to the 2nd Division again. Already in the 50s, the team achieved his greatest success: play in the spanish 1st Division (season 1955-1956).
After a few bad years, between 1970-1975, they played three seasons in 2nd division and returned to flirt with the 1st Division. Without doubt, the highlight of this great team, is the supporter´s loyalty..
