RCD Espanyol Femenino is the women's football (soccer) section of RCD Espanyol. Was founded in 1970.

History[edit]

RCD Espanyol was one of the pioneering teams in women's football in Spain, playing its first match as early as 1970. The team's first national success came in 1989, when they first reached the national cup's final, losing it against Añorga. They won the competition for the first time seven years later, and successfully defended the title the following year.

2006 was their most successful season to date as they won their only league title to date and their third Queen's Cup. Thus Espanyol took part in the UEFA Women's Cup the following season.

In recent years Espanyol has consolidated itself as one of Spain's top teams. It has been most successful in the Copa de la Reina, winning two more titles in 2009 and 2010. Most recently, Espanyol was 3rd after FC Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in the 2011-12 national championship and won its sixth national cup by beating Athletic 2-1 in the final, tying with Levante UD as the competition's most successful team.[1]
