LEG / History


On June 4, 2016, Leganés achieved something unthinkable for many: the first promotion to the First Division in their history. They did it in the last matchweek, at Miranda de Ebro, thanks to a goal of the centerback Pablo Insua after a corner. It was the culmination of a season in which the team went from less to more, setting themselves as leaders at the beginning of the second half of the season after a spectacular match in Butarque against Alavés, another one of the teams to reach promotion. Guided by Asier Garitano and an exceptional human group, Leganés made possible the dream of an entire city and of generations of cucumbers: Leganes is in La Liga.
