About UE Lleida
Unio Esportiva Lleida was a Spanish football team based in Lleida, in the autonomous community of Catalonia. Originally founded as Lerida Balompie-AEM on 30 October 1939, it became Union Deportiva Lerida in 1947, after a merger with CD Leridano. Dissolved in 2011, it held home matches at Camp d´Esports, with a 13,500-seat capacity. The soul of the club was reformed as Lleida Esportiu.
Lleida adopted the Catalan version of its name in 1978. The club has spent most of its history in the lower divisions. However, in the early 1950s and early 1990s, the club won promotion to La Liga.
During the 1990s the club was managed by Mane, Juande Ramos and Victor Munoz. All three subsequently became successful managers with other clubs. Since 1987 the club has organised its own summer trophy, the Ciutat de Lleida Trophy.
