Unión Deportiva Salamanca, S. A. D. was a Spanish football team in the autonomous community of Castile and León. Founded on 16 March 1923 and nicknamed Los Charros, the club played in white shirts and black shorts, holding home games at Estadio El Helmántico, which seated 17,341 spectators. Formed by Irish students, Salamanca first played in early Spanish championships in 1907, before an official league was founded on. On 16 March 1923, at the tables of Café Novelty, situated in the Plaza Mayor, Dionisio Ridruejo set the club's early official foundations and, from 1939 and during the following three decades, it fluctuated between the third and the second levels of the Spanish football league. In the 1974–75 season, Salamanca made its La Liga debuts, overachieving for a final 7th position, which would be its best classification ever; the team lasted in the topflight until 1981 coached by José Luis García Traid returned the following year for a further two seasons, being further relegated to Segunda División B – the new third division created in 1977 – in 1984–85, spending three years in that category before promoting back.
In 1994–95's second division, after finishing fourth in the league, Salamanca lost the first leg of the promotion/relegation playoffs against Albacete Balompié, 0–2 at home, but won 5–0 away, returning to the main level after eleven years. The club was managed by 29-year-old Juan Manuel Lillo in charge for the following season, as the Castile and León club ranked 22nd and last in the top level. From 1999 onwards, Salamanca stabilized in the second level, save for the 2005–06 season spent in the third division, with the club winning the regular season and promoting in the playoffs. Veteran Quique Martín was arguably the most important player of the club in the decade, whilst Argentine Jorge D'Alessandro, who held the record for most games in the top division in the club's history, worked with the team as a manager in a further two spells. 2010–11 brought a club record ten consecutive defeats between December 2010/February 2011, two coaching changes, as Salamanca returned to the third division after five years.
On 18 June 2013, 90 years after its foundation, the club was liquidated due to the accumulation of unpaid debts.

Sociedad Deportiva Compostela was a Spanish football team based in Santiago de Compostela, in the autonomous community of Galicia. Founded on June 26, 1962, they played; the team went banrupt in 2006, but principles had reorganized as SD Compostela to play in 2004. They play in Tercera División– Group 1, holding home matches at Estadio Vero Boquete de San Lázaro. Founded in 1962, Compostela spent the better part of that and the following decades playing regional football, its first promotion to a semi-national stage occurred in 1977, with a promotion to Segunda División B, which lasted just one season. Relegation in 1986 was compounded by off-field controversy surrounding the actions of president Francisco Steppe, he resigned amid allegations of receipt of payments to throw a game against Pontevedra CF, which would assure the opposition's maintenance in the category. The late 1980s saw a significant restructuring of the club both at board and management levels and, in 1990, Compostela regained third-level status.
The following campaign was to prove the club's most successful to date. On 23 June 1991, a capacity crowd of 8,000 at the Estadio Municipal Santa Isabel, saw goals from Juanito and Ochoa clinch a 3–1 victory in the final play-off match against CD Badajoz, for a first-ever Segunda División visit; the move to Estadio Multiusos de San Lázaro coincided with the continuing rise in the team's fortunes and, at the end of 1993–94, following a 3–1 play-off victory against Rayo Vallecano, Compostela reached La Liga. For a small regional club it did remarkably well, reached a best finish of 10th in 1995–96 courtesy of strikers Christopher Ohen and Bent Christensen, whom totalled 23 league goals. After four seasons at the top, Compostela was relegated after losing a relegation play-off match to Villarreal CF on the away goals rule, despite playing overall attractive football; the club was about to start a downward spiral. Off-field problems continued in 2003–04, with the pinnacle being the players, who had not been paid in several months, refusing to appear for a fixture at UB Conquense, with the subsequent loss of three points.
At the season's close, after the actual relegation, Compostela dropped further to the Galician Regional Preferente after failing again to meet the financial deadline. They played there for two seasons, folded after the 2005-06 season. Taken into court, a judge dissolved the institution and auctioned all the club's properties, including the brand name, the trophies and the teams's spot in the league. January 26, 2011, after everything was sold out, the court published the legal liquidation of the entity. Re-Branded in 2004 as SD Campus Stellae, with José Luís Balboa as president, enters competition in the 2005-06 season at the group 11 of the Galicia Terceira Autonómica league, where he finishes in 11th position; the following season, 2006-07, they played in group 12 of the same division, finished third out of 14 teams. In 2006, a former president of the dissolved SD Compostela, José María Caneda, bought the commercial name Sociedad Deportiva Compostela, became president of the SD Campus Stellae, changing the team's name at the beginning of the 2007-08 season to keep the former term.
In the 2007 -- 08 season, the new club returned to Tercera. In the following campaign, after finishing first in its group, the team beat Atlético Monzón with a 4–2 aggregate and won a second consecutive promotion. However, this would be a short-lived return, with relegation befalling at the season's end followed by another one due to overwhelming financial problems. Longtime president José María Caneda left the club. Tercera División: 2008–09, 2017–18 As of 18 September 2015Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.

Compostela continued to use the ground for first team fixtures until the end of the 1993 season; the reserve team, Compostela B, played on at Santa Isabel until early 2003, when the ground was demolished and replaced with a municipal sports centre that bore the same name.

Founded on 24 September 1947, it plays in Tercera División – Group 10, holding home matches at Estadio Municipal de Chapín, with an overall 20,742-seat capacity. Team colours are blue shirt and socks, white shorts. Due to the link between Jerez de la Frontera and the United Kingdom created by the exports of sherry, football had its beginnings in the region towards the second half of the 19th century. In the early 20th century Sir Thomas Spencer, who worked with the William & Humbert winery, founded Sociedad Jerez Foot-Ball Club – he served as chairman and captain. From 1942 to 1947 the club had several names, ending with Jerez Club Deportivo, changed to the current name in 1960s. Xerez first reached the second division in 1953–54, remaining there for five years; the team's new stadium, Estadio Municipal de Chapín, was inaugurated on 10 July 1988, replacing the old Estadio Domecq – the first match there was a friendly against Real Madrid.
After decades in that category and in the third, it had a 2001–02 second level campaign which resulted in an historic La Liga promotion, only one year after doing the same thing. Since Xerez finished in the top 10 in division two each campaign, except in the 2007–08 season when a weak start led to a 15th-place finish; the following campaign proved excellent, as the club was always in the top positions: on 13 June 2009, after beating SD Huesca 2–1 at home, it achieved promotion to the top division for the first time in its history. In the final day of the competition, a draw at Celta de Vigo proved enough for the title, as CD Tenerife lost 1–2 home to CD Castellón in the final minute; the first season of Xerez in the top flight would be short-lived. After only collecting seven points from the first 19 games – which led to the sacking of coach José Ángel Ziganda – the club amassed 27 in the remaining 19 with Néstor Gorosito as boss, not good enough however to prevent the drop as last. Xerez ranked 14th in the two following second level seasons, respectively.
The 2012–13 campaign, was disastrous on all levels, as the team finished in 22nd and last position as a direct consequence of enduring serious financial difficulties for several years, the situation culminated with the club being relegated to the fourth division on 1 August. After the Xerez's season, a bunch of supporters founded a new club in the lower leagues, named Xerez Deportivo FC due to the club's institutional problems. While the latter was promoted to Primera Provincial, the former was again relegated, this time to Primera Andaluza, until May 2017, when Xerez came back to Tercera División.

After several promotions, in 1941–42 the club made its La Liga debut. From here until the'80s, it alternated between that category and Segunda División, with its golden age coming during the'70s, with eight top flight seasons, which included a career-best two sixth league places.
In 1959 Granada achieved its greatest sports landmark. In the final, played at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, the team lost to Barcelona 4–1. In the 1980s, Granada had some brief appearances in the second division, but it spent most seasons in Segunda División B, dropping another level in 2002–03, due to non-payment to its players. After four seasons in the fourth division, former Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz, along with his son Paco, arrived at the club. With their help, the Andalusian side was again promoted to the third category but got itself into serious financial trouble. In 2006–07, Granada played in Group IV of the third level after four seasons in Tercera. Three years in July 2009, the club was in such financial difficulty that it was on the brink of closing; the solution to the crisis came with the signing of a partnership agreement with Udinese Calcio, with the Spaniards incorporating large numbers of players contracted to the Italian club as well as receiving its youth players and reserves as part of the agreement.
At the end of the season, Granada won its group promoted in the play-offs, returning to the second division after 22 years. In 2010–11, Granada finished in fifth position, with most of the players loaned by Udinese still on board. On 18 June 2011, the club became the first winner of the promotion play-offs – a different system was used from 1985 to 1999 – after successively defeating Celta de Vigo and Elche, thus returning to the top division after a 35-year absence. Back in the top-flight after such a long absence, it was always going to be difficult. By the end of the 2011 -- 12 season, Granada managed finishing in 17th position. After surviving in the top flight for six seasons, Granada was relegated in 2016-17 after being defeated by Real Sociedad. 23 seasons in La Liga 33 seasons in Segunda División 22 seasons in Segunda División B 5 seasons in Tercera División 2 seasons in Regional As of 08 February 2019 Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.
