Fútbol Club Cartagena is a Spanish football team based in Cartagena, in the autonomous community of Murcia. Founded in 1995, it currently plays in the Spanish second division, holding home games at the Estadio Cartagonova, with a capacity of 15,105 seaters.



Fútbol Club Cartagena was founded in 1995. In the first eight years, it was known as Cartagonova Fútbol Club, and first played in the third division in 1998–99.

Being saved from folding by local entrepreneur Francisco Gómez Hernández after 2002–03, the club consolidated itself in the third level, and achieved another promotion in 2008–09.

Historic side Cartagena FC, which was founded much earlier, was a subsidiary or reserve team during a few years, but re-gained its independence in 2009–10.
