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 in 1996, and successfully defended the title the following year.
2006 was their most successful season to date as they won their first (and for now only) league title 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 three more titles in 2009, 2010, and 2012, tying with Levante UD as the competition's most successful team. Most recently, Espanyol was 3rd after FC Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao in the 2011-12 national championship
