Union Deportiva España, also known as España de Tánger, was a football club based in Tangier during its Spanish protectorate.

The team entered Segunda División for the 1953–54 season, finishing eighth of sixteen teams in Group II. The following campaign, it came fourth, a point off the promotion play-offs, having the exact same fate in its third and final season.

After Tangier returned to Moroccan rule, the team crossed the Straits of Gibraltar and merged into Algeciras CF as España de Algeciras CF before the team returned to their previous and current name.
