Arenas Club de Getxo is a Spanish football club based in the town of Getxo, near Bilbao, in the autonomous community of Basque Country. Founded in 1909, it currently plays in Segunda División B – Group 2, holding home games at Campo Municipal de Gobela, with a 1,200-seat capacity.
It was among the pioneering clubs of Spanish football, and in 1928 was a founding member of La Liga, alongside neighbouring Athletic Bilbao, Real Sociedad and Real Unión.
The team subsequently competed in the Campeonato Norte along with Real Sociedad, Athletic Bilbao, Racing de Santander, Sporting de Gijón and Celta de Vigo, being crowned champion in 1917, and qualifying to the Copa del Rey, where it reached the final in Barcelona, losing 1–2 against Madrid FC after extra time.
In 1919 Arenas won another regional competition, the Campeonato de Vizcaya, thus qualifying for the domestic cup again, and winning the tournament after disposing of FC Barcelona in overtime (5–2). The following year, when Spain made its international debut at the Olympic Games in Antwerp, the squad included two players from the club, Francisco Pagazaurtundúa and Félix Sesúmaga.
Arenas Getxo appeared in the Spanish Cup finals on two further occasions, losing against Barcelona in 1925 (0–2) and two years later against Real Unión (0–1), the latter in the only all-Basque decisive match in the competition's history. After playing in La Liga's first seven editions – finishing third in 1929–30 – and the following six seasons in the second division, the club has spent the vast majority of its existence competing at the fourth level, with the occasional visit to the regional leagues.
