Real Club Recreativo de Huelva is a Spanish football team formed on December 23 1889. This makes it the oldest surviving football team in Spain, formed by Dr McKay and overseas British workers at the Rio Tinto mines. Originally named Huelva Recreation Club. Due to its long-standing existence (it is the oldest surviving team of Spanish professional football), the team is often referred to as El Decano ("the dean") of the Spanish football fraternity.

Commonly known as Recre, they play in white with blue vertical stripes and white shorts. Their home ground is the Nuevo Colombino stadium that seats 19,860. They have hosted the Trofeo Colombino there since 1965.

After three seasons in Segunda División (Spanish second division), Recre achieved promotion to top flight after beating Numancia on June 4, 2006, mathematically securing promotion with two matches left to be played.

Season 2006-2007

The new season in the Spanish top-flight has been a surprising one for the club. They finished the season sitting eighth in the table at 54 points. Among the victories was a 3-0 win against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu and 2-0 against Valencia. The clubs leading goalscorer was Florent Sinama-Pongolle with 12 goals to his name. The clubs coach Marcelino García Toral announced on May 30, 2007 that he would leave the club at the end of the season. He had success in his tenure with Recre, guiding them from Segunda División to the Spanish top-flight.

"Everything in life has a beginning and an end, and this is the moment to end my time at Recre," Marcelino told a news conference.


This fueled speculation in June 2007 that Recreativo had offered Danish legend Michael Laudrup a contract to coach the club in the new season 2007-2008. According to Laudrup's agent, the negotiations were ongoing and "very serious." However Laudrup turned down the offer, and took the vacant managers job at Getafe CF in July 2007.
