History

Founded in 1921, Alavés first reached the first division eight years later, a stint which would last three years. After years of seriously facing disappearance, which went well into the 90s, the club finally achieves a Segunda División promotion in 1994–95.

In 1998–99, Alavés returned to the top level after a 42-year hiatus, achieving two wins against FC Barcelona in the following season, in which they would, for the first time, qualify for the UEFA Cup, ending the season sixth.

During that season, they reached the final in the UEFA Cup, where they lost 5–4 to Liverpool (taking the game to extra time, and only losing to an unlucky own golden goal), as well as finishing 10th in the domestic campaign.

Although Alavés were relegated after 2002–03, it regained top flight status two years later. In the 2005–06 season, they were relegated back to the second level. After two years of battling with relegation to the third level, it eventually befell in 2008–09.
