History


Unión Deportiva Logroñés was founded in 2009 after the extinction of CD Logroñés,[2] occupying the seat of CD Varea, recently promoted to Segunda División B.[3] They comfortably maintained their place in the division in their first season, (2009–10), and their reserve team, UD Logroñés B, finished in third position in the regional championship, thus promoting to Tercera División.[4] UD Logroñés reached 5th place in the 2011–12 season.[5]

In 2016 the club made a 3-year collaboration agreement with SD Eibar, with their players going on loan to Logroñés for experience with the aim of achieving promotion due to the additional talent in the squad.[6] Being in Segunda División B, UD Logroñés finished 6th in the 2016–17 season.[7] One of the first to make the move was goalkeeper Jon Ander. In the next season, the club finished 7th in Group 2,[8] and in the 2018–19 season the club finished as runners-up of their group[9]

The 2019–20 season was curtailed, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain, when the team was leading Group 2. On 18 July 2020, the season recommenced with the promotion playoffs to Segunda División, and UD Logroñés achieved promotion after beating Castellón in a penalty shootout.[10]
