Unión Popular de Langreo is a Spanish football team based in Langreo, in the autonomous community of Asturias. Founded in 1961, it plays in Tercera División, holding its home games at Estadio Ganzábal in La Felguera, with a capacity of 4,024 seats.

History[edit]

UP Langreo was founded on 4 July 1961, after the merge of local teams CP La Felguera and Racing de Sama, who both had a fiercy rivalry. The merge was made with the aim of overcoming from the rivalry between Sama and La Felguera not only in football, but in all areas.[1]

In its first season, Langreo achieved promotion to Segunda División, where it played during eight seasons out of the next ten years. Since its second relegation from Segunda to Tercera División, the club always played between Tercera and Segunda División B, the new third tier created in 1977, where UP Langreo played for the first time in its inaugural season.

In 1994, Langreo played the promotion playoffs to Segunda División, but it finished in the last position of its group, composed also by CF Extremadura, AEC Manlleu and CD Numancia.

Since that year, Langreo continues playing alternatively between Segunda División B and Tercera División.

Rivalries[edit]

Langreo's historic rival is Caudal Deportivo. Both teams meet in the Asturian Mining basins rivalry.[2] The club also has a strong rivalry with Real Avilés.
