CD Leganés Tryouts & Club Guide: History, Stadium, Players, and More!
Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.
I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.
Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and fcscout.com was born.
This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.
That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).
This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

CD Leganés History
On June 23, 1928, the club was formally established as a social organization. Ramón del Hierro served as the nation’s first ever president. However, the club was forced to stop its operations in 1936 due to the Spanish civil war, and they remained dormant in that state until they were reestablished on September 4, 1946.
The majority of Leganés’ history was spent competing in lesser categories of Spanish football. In 1977, the club was once again promoted, this time to the fourth division, where it had previously competed when the category was ranked at the third level for a span of seven years.
Leganés entered the new division three in 1987 after making steady progress, and it was promoted to the second division six years later. It kept its league status for 11 seasons, during which it achieved two consecutive eighth-place finishes (its highest), from 1995 to 1997.
The acquisition of a controlling stake in the club was completed on December 24th, 2008 by Victoria Pavón and Felipe Moreno.
Victoria Pavón has held the position of president of the club continuously since July 2009.
After playing in Segunda B for the previous ten years, Leganés was promoted to the Segunda División for the 2013–14 season.
Leganés became the fifth team from the Community of Madrid to ever play in La Liga after Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Rayo Vallecano, and Getafe. They earned promotion to La Liga in the 2015–16 season for the first time in their history, which was sealed on 4 June 2016 with a 1–0 away win against CD Mirandés. This made Leganés the fifth team to ever come from the Community of Madrid to play in La Liga. They remained in the top division for four seasons, achieving their highest position of thirteenth in 2018–19, before being demoted in the final game of the season, a home tie with Real Madrid that ended in a score of two goals each. The squad eliminated Real Madrid from the Copa del Rey quarterfinals with a win of 2–1 at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium during this stretch of play, which allowed them to go to the semifinals of the competition for the first time ever.
CD Leganés Stadium
The Estadio Municipal de Butarque is a multi-use stadium located in Leganés, Spain. Currently, football matches are played there, and CD Leganés calls it their home stadium.
Butarque is also the name of a public park that is located nearby the stadium, the patron saint of the municipality of Leganés, and the main water stream that flows through the city of Leganés (Arroyo Butarque). The stadium’s name comes from the combination of these three names. Between 1997 and 1998, the stadium was constructed with the intention of succeeding the previous playing field in the city, which was known as the Estadio Luis Rodrguez de Miguel. On February 14, 1998, Butarque was officially opened to the public with a match between Leganés and Xerez.
Butarque Stadium, which had an initial capacity of 8,138, was expanded to a total of 10,954 seats and divided into four distinct sections after Leganés was promoted to La Liga in 2016.
On April 29, 2016, the mayor of Leganés proposed making modifications to the stadium’s access as well as increasing the capacity of Butarque to accommodate 12,000 spectators.
Following the completion of the most recent enlargement, the stadium is now able to accommodate 12,454 people.
Butarque has also been the site of musical performances and festivals such as Festimad in addition to hosting football matches.
