CD Baskonia is a Spanish football club from the Basque town of Basauri . The club, founded in 1913, has played in the Tercera División , Group 4 , since the 1994/95 season. In the mid-1950s, the club played for several years in the Segunda División , and the club is currently the second training team for Athletic Bilbao . Athletic's youth players usually switch to Baskonia for one season before they can play for Athletic B in Segunda División B.


Independent association

In the Basque town of Basauri was Club Deportivo Baskonia in 1913 founded. After a small farming village became an industrial town with 50,000 inhabitants at the beginning of the 20th century, the CD Baskonia also got a boost. In the mid-1950s, the club was able to play in the Segunda División for six years in a row . The term Baskonia is derived from the word "Vasconia", which is the Latin name for today's Basque Country . The Basques have been using the name "Baskonia" for a number of years, although the association is still officially called "Basconia" and the name has not yet been changed.

Cooperation with Athletic Bilbao

In June 1997, CD Baskonia signed an agreement with Athletic Bilbao , so that the club has since acted as Athletic's second training team. The youth players between 18 and 21 initially play at Baskonia before switching to Athletic B. Although the club reached the promotion places in 2005/2006, he could not compete in the play-offs, since Athletic B remained in the Segunda División B and not two teams of a club are allowed to play in the same league.
