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, holding home games at Camp d'Esports, with a capacity of 13,500 seats.


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.
