Club Lleida Esportiu is a Spanish football team based in Lleida, in the autonomous community of Catalonia. Founded in July 2011 it plays in Segunda División B – Group 3, holding home games at Camp d'Esports, with a capacity of 13,500 seats.

History[edit]

In mid-May 2011, historic club UE Lleida was liquidated due to a 27.2 million debt.[1] Its berth was auctioned and acquired by an entrepreneur from Lleida, Sisco Pujol,[2] who created the new Lleida Esportiu, which started competing in Segunda División B;[3] the club was also scheduled to take part in the 2011–12 Copa del Rey, in place of Unió Esportiva.

Esportiu played its first friendly game on 6 August 2011, with CF Pobla de Mafumet (2–0). On the 21st, the team played its first official match, losing 1–3 against CF Reus Deportiu.

In 2013, just in their second season, Lleida Esportiu played for the first time the promotion playoffs to Segunda División. In 2016, their third try in four years, the team lost promotion in the last round against Sevilla Atlético, after a penalty shootout.

One year later, Lleida Esportiu reached for the first time the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey, after eliminating top level side Real Sociedad, by overcoming a disadvantage of three goals in the aggregate score, in the previous round. In their first appearance in the round of 16, the club was eliminated by Atlético Madrid.
