Granada Club de Fútbol, S.A.D., known simply as Granada and nicknamed Nazaríes, is a Spanish football club in the city of Granada, in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Granada Club de Fútbol was founded on 14 April 1931, originally as Recreativo de Granada; the first president was Julio López Fernández. It was him who registered the club in the Registry of Associations in the Civil Government and presented the first Board of Directors. The first football match was played against the Deportivo Jaén on 6 December 1931, which resulted in a 2–1 victory. That season, the club finished 2nd in the Tercera Regional – Región Sur championship. 4 wins in 6 matches helped Granada CF to be promoted to the Segunda Regional.
After several promotions, in 1941–42 the club made its La Liga debut. It was the match against the Celta on 28 September 1941. During that season the Granada had some historical home wins, among them 8–0 against the Real Oviedo and 6–0 against the Barcelona. The Granada finished the season in the 10th position among 14 teams. From here until the 1980s, it alternated between that category and the Segunda División, with its golden age coming during the 1970s, with eight top flight seasons, which included a best-ever two sixth league places (1971–72, 1973–74). The Granada finished the 1971-72 season with 9 wins in the last 10 home games, among them wins against the Barcelona and the Real. In 1959 the Granada achieved its greatest sports landmark, being the runner-up of the Copa del Generalísimo (later Copa del Rey).
The Derby of eastern Andalusia also known as the Andalucía Oriental derby (the Derbi Andaluz, the Derbi Oriental) is the name of a running football club rivalry in eastern Andalusia region, Spain, between the Málaga CF (previously the CD Málaga) and the Granada CF. The club plays its home matches at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes.
