Club Deportivo Alcoyano is a Spanish football team based in Alcoy, in the autonomous community of Valencia. Founded in 1929, it plays in Segunda Division B – Group 3, holding home games in Estadio El Collao, with a 4,500-seat capacity. The team is also known by its name in Valencian: Alcoia.
A simile exists in Spanish which includes the name of this football club, “Tener mas moral que el Alcoyano”. The phrase possibly originated in the 1950s, when Alcoyano were losing a game by 0–13 at home but never gave up, still trying hard to score at the end of the match. However, this is disputed by some historians, with the origins being somewhat unclear.
