Unión Montañesa Escobedo is a Spanish football team based in Escobedo, Camargo, in the autonomous community of Cantabria. Founded in 1964 it plays in Tercera División – Group 3, holding home matches at Estadio Eusebio Arce.


Escobedo was founded in 1964. The team played in the regional leagues for the vast majority of its first 26 years, with the one exception being a season-long stay in Tercera División in 1967–68.

The team returned to the category, now the national fourth division, twenty-one years later, remaining there for the subsequent decades. In 1991–92 and the following campaigns it was crowned division champions, adding four runner-up places; however, none of the ten promotion playoff visits to Segunda División B was successful.

Escobedo reached the third round of the Copa del Rey in 1991–92, falling to CD Málaga 0–3 on aggregate. Two years later the club qualified to the same stage, losing over two legs to UE Lleida.
