History [ edit ]
Figueres was first founded in 1919. In 1983 the club first reached
Segunda División B, and promoted to Segunda División only three years later, maintaining that status for seven seasons and appearing once in the La Liga promotion playoffs: after finishing third in the regular season, it eventually lost on aggregate to Cádiz CF.
Figueres spent the next fourteen years consolidated in the third level, only now and then vying for promotion. On 27 June 2007 the principal shareholder transferred the club to
Castelldefels due to little support of the public, and the side would eventually disappear.
In August 2007 UE Figueres was refounded by minority shareholders, with the team starting playing in the lowest division of Spanish football,
