The Huesca Sports Society turns 62 this Tuesday and does so in a season in which the goals set are far away in this final stretch of the championship. A bittersweet birthday, but we must be aware of the moment that has been lived for 14 years when it was promoted to the Second Division in 2008 and that the First Division has been savored for two seasons, in the last three years.
All of this was unimaginable when SD Huesca was founded in 1960 and for many years it moved between the Second B and the Third Division, until it made the leap to professional football. Continuous growth with an Alcoraz that has turned 50 in 2022 and a club with many exciting future projects on the table. The social mass is close to 8,000 and after the latest renovations the capacity of the stadium is 9,100 seats.
Glory was achieved in Lugo on May 21, 2018 and after descending, a project was made again to return to the First Division and it was achieved a year later with another date, July 17, 2020, which has also entered Barça history. Then came another relegation and the bittersweet season we are currently in.
Since they were promoted to the Second Division, on June 15, 2008 in Écija, a stage began in which they had to fight tooth and nail every year for permanence until the fateful relegation in 2013 in Huelva, closing five years in the silver category. After a first unsuccessful promotion attempt, the second division was promoted back to the Second Division, on June 28, 2015 in El Alcoraz against the Hurricane.
Here came the change and after a first season where permanence was achieved, the next Huesca got into the promotion playoff for the first time, being dismounted by Getafe. But the best remained and a year later glory came in Lugo on May 21, 2018, a date engraved in gold letters in the history of the club with the first promotion to the First Division.
Unfortunately, it did not last long and a year later it was relegated to promotion the following season with the coronavirus as the main protagonist and a promotion that could not be celebrated as it deserved and with a hobby that set an example of responsible behavior on that July 17. But, in addition, three days later they were champions of the Second Division for the first time in history by beating Sporting in El Molinón in Gijón and going up as first. Last year the last day was cruelly relegated, leaving the team that Pacheta coached one goal from salvation against Valencia in a game that ended in a goalless draw.
Throughout its history it spent two years in Regional, 30 years in the Third Division and 18 in Second B. Then the time has come to continue enjoying the elite with ten years in the Second Division and two in the First Division, to continue expanding history of the Huesca Sports Society after 62 years of life.
On March 29, 1960, the Huesca Sports Society was founded. Although football in the city began in 1910 with the Huesca Fútbol Club, there were different stages later until reaching the current SD Huesca. After four years without a representative team in the city, several people, among whom there would later be some players from the team, met at Bar Flor, led by Patricio Funes, and decided to found the Sociedad Deportiva Huesca.
