Club Atlético Osasuna, which plays in a red shirt with blue shorts, was founded in 1920 in Pamplona in the Navarra region and first qualified for the Primera División for a single season in 1935-1936.
Although recent years have seen them towards the bottom of the table, Osasuna finished fourth in 2005-2006, equalling their best season finish in 1990-1991.
Named after the Basque word for “healthy vigour”, CA Osasuna first made the first division in 1935-1936 for one season, and again for a single season in 1953-1954. However, three years later they were back, this time staying in the top division for six out of the next seven seasons until an extended period in the second and third divisions that finally ended in 1980.

This was the beginning of a fourteen year streak that ended in 1994 but despite several years near the bottom of the second division they made it back into the top tier of Spanish football in 2000 and there they have have remained ever since. Although they tend towards the bottom of the table, the 2005-2006 season saw them end fourth, tying for their best ever season ever.
El Sadar stadium
Osasuna’s Estadio El Sadar dates from 1967 and can hold 19,500 spectators. It was briefly renamed Reyno de Navarra between 2005 and 2011 thanks to sponsorship from the Navarra government.
The stadium has twice been renovated, in 1989 and 2005, when capacity was increased following the construction of a new main stand. However, that figure was reduced when the stadium was converted to all seater.
