UD Ibiza History
UD Ibiza was established in 2015 with the intention of succeeding the previous UD Ibiza-Eivissa, which had spent the previous two years competing in the Segunda División B. After competing in the Regional league for the previous two years, the club earned promotion to the Tercera División in June of 2017.
Ibiza settled Lorca FC’s debts on August 7, 2018, and won administrative promotion to the third level of competition as a result. This occurred after the RFEF prevented Lorca FC from competing in Segunda División B.
The team participated in the Copa del Rey for the very first time during the 2019–20 season. They prevailed against Pontevedra and Albacete before suffering a 1–2 defeat at the hands of Barcelona in the round of 32. Prior to that, they held a lead over the champions of the league with twenty minutes left to play.
The first time that UD Ibiza triumphed over a team from the Primera División was in the second round of the 2020–21 Copa del Rey, when they defeated Celta Vigo by a score of 5–2 in the competition. In the end, the club was defeated by Athletic Bilbao in extra time by a score of 1-2.
After claiming victory over UCAM Murcia CF in the championship match of the promotion play-off on May 23, 2021, Ibiza was elevated to the Segunda División for the very first time in its history.
UD Ibiza Stadium
Ibiza, which is part of Spain’s Balearic Islands, is home to a multi-purpose stadium known as the Estadi Municipal de Can Misses. At the moment, football matches are played there, and UD Ibiza calls it their home stadium.
The stadium was constructed in 1991 in the community of Can Misses. Until recently, the only teams that played there were the city’s two most successful soccer teams, SD Ibiza and UD Ibiza-Eivissa. Grandstands with roofs were first put into use in 2003, but in 2012 they had to be replaced because of damage caused by a severe storm. The natural grass was removed and replaced with artificial turf in 2017, and in 2018, the spectator stands underwent renovations and were made weatherproof.
During the decade of the 2010s, the stadium was shared by a number of different clubs in the city. Two of these clubs, UD Ibiza and CD Ibiza Islas Pitiusas, competed in the national divisions (Segunda División B and Tercera División, respectively) during this time. Following UD Ibiza’s achievement of promotion to the Segunda División on June 4, 2021, the City Council reached an agreement with the club for the use of the stadium on an exclusive basis for the following two years. This agreement was made to fulfill the requirements of the Liga de Ftbol Profesional.
