UD Las Palmas
Unión Deportiva Las Palmas, S. A. D. is a Spanish football team based in the autonomous community of Canary Islands. Founded on 22 August 1949, it plays in Segunda División, holding home games at the Estadio Gran Canaria, with a capacity of 32,400 seats; the club remains the only one in Spanish football to achieve back-to-back promotions to La Liga in its first two seasons. It had a 19-year run in the competition, ending in 1982–83, they have been promoted to La Liga on three additional occasions since that time, most from 2015 to 2018. Its main rivals are Tenerife from said neighbouring island. Las Palmas and Tenerife contest the Canary Islands derby; the two clubs are among the most isolated professional football clubs in Europe, since they play their away games on the distant Spanish mainland. Though the club registered with the Royal Spanish Football Federation on 6 June 1949, UD Las Palmas was founded on 22 August of that year, as the result of a merger between all five clubs on the island: Club Deportivo Gran Canaria, Atlético Club de Fútbol, Real Club Victoria, Arenas Club and Marino Fútbol Club.
The union was to create a club strong enough to keep Canarian players on the island and not to seek a better career on the mainland. Debate was held on the name of the club, which it was agreed would not include the names of any of its predecessors. An early option, Deportivo Canarias, was scrapped due to referring to the Canary Islands on a whole rather than the island of Gran Canaria; the name Las Palmas by itself was put forward, rejected due to the name having been taken by a defunct club in the city. The first training session at the new club was held on 16 September 1949. Las Palmas finished second in their first season in the Tercera División, ranking third in the following year's Segunda División to reach La Liga for the first time and became the first Spanish club to achieve consecutive promotions in its first two years of existence; the first season in the top flight ended, however, in relegation, but the team returned to the category in 1954, going on to enjoy a six-year spell. After Las Palmas returned to La Liga at the end of the 1963–64 season, again as champions, the club went on to have their most successful spell in the competition.
Managed by Vicente Dauder, they finished third in 1967–68 behind Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, four club players made the Spain squad which hosted and won the UEFA Euro 1964 tournament. Las Palmas player Juan Guedes died on 9 March 1971 at the age of 28; the next season, French coach Pierre Sinibaldi led the club to the fifth place, with subsequent qualification for the UEFA Cup: after disposing of Torino F. C. and ŠK Slovan Bratislava, the Spaniards bowed out to Dutch club FC Twente. Las Palmas' third appearance in European competition came with the 1977–78 UEFA Cup, where they defeated FK Sloboda Tuzla of Yugoslavia in the first round before falling to the English side Ipswich Town. Under the management of Miguel Muñoz, with players such as Argentines Miguel Ángel Brindisi, Daniel Carnevali, Carlos Morete and Quique Wolff, the club reached their first final of the Copa del Rey in that year, losing on 19 April to Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. From the 1990s onwards, Las Palmas played in the Segunda División, but spent six years in Segunda División B – the new third level created in 1977 – and, from 2000–02, competed in the top flight.
On 3 October 2001 the side managed a 4–2 home win against Real Madrid, with youth product Rubén Castro scoring two goals for the hosts, but the season ended nonetheless in relegation. On the 22 December 2001, Las Palmas played its 1,000th game in La Liga. On 21 June 2015, Las Palmas was promoted back to La Liga after defeating Real Zaragoza on the away goals rule. 34 seasons in La Liga 28 seasons in Segunda División 6 seasons in Segunda División B 1 season in Tercera División As of 12 March 2019.

Club Deportivo Mensajero is a Spanish football team based in Santa Cruz de la Palma, in the autonomous community of Canary Islands. Founded in 1924, it plays in Tercera División – Group 12, holding home games at Nuevo Estadio Silvestre Carrillo, with a capacity of 6,000 spectators. Mensajero’s history can be traced to 1924 when a group of friends in Santa Cruz de la Palma formed a youth team, it was not until 1939 that a senior club was established but, with a formation date in 1924, after an excision of players from Tenisca. The first president was Silvestre Carrillo, with two team stadia being dedicated to him; the club spent 70 years playing at regional level, with various degrees of success. It won the fourth division title for the Canary Islands in 1985, arriving at the national stage seven years after winning promotion to the third level. During the following ten seasons, Mensajero appeared twice in the playoffs: in the 1994–95 campaign, after 22 wins in the regular season, the promotion group consisted of Córdoba CF, CD Castellón and Sestao Sport Club.
In 1999–2000, Mensajero finished fourth after winning 19 out of 38 in the first stage, the highlights being home wins against Caudal Deportivo and Sporting de Gijón B. In the playoffs, it could only collect one point in six matches, against Burgos CF, Granada CF and Real Murcia; the expense of running a small club at a national level began to take its toll and with dramatic cuts in funding, Mensajero was relegated at the end of the 2001–02 season, 11 points behind the penultimate team, CD Onda, 18 points from the safety zone. Two years they dropped down to the regional leagues, vacated Silvestre Carrillo grounds and set up home at the Municipal Estadio Bajamar, sharing it with neighbouring SD Tenisca. After its grounds' improvements were finished, Mensajero returned home for the end of the 2006–07 season, before gaining promotion back to level four in June 2008 and back to level three in June 2015. 12 seasons in Segunda Division B 23 seasons in Tercera División As of 13 March 2017Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.
Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality. Mensajero play at Nuevo Estadio Silvestre Carrillo. Lying at the head of a valley close to the centre of Santa Cruz de la Palma, the stadium was extensively rebuilt from 2003 to 2007. Due to the steep valley-side to the south side of the pitch and the sheer drop to the north, the majority of the seating has always been found at either end of the stadium. Prior to the redevelopment in 2003, there was a covered stand at the east end of the ground. A narrow strip of terracing ran along the north side of the pitch, which joined the terrace behind the west end goal. Following redevelopment, the basic orientation of the stadium remained unchanged. There is however, a more substantial area of seating behind the east goal and this now arcs around to the north side; the east end no longer features a roof, which the original redevelopment plan included, but due the financial difficulties that the club experienced, the project was scaled down. The north terrace tapers away to a single line of seating.
The West terrace remains unaltered from the original stadium. The players changing facilities are found in a single storey building on the south side of the pitch. Mensajero's historic rival is SD Tenisca. Since the reorganisation of Tercera División in 1977, the clubs have met in the league on 28 occasions, with six wins for each side and 16 draws. In 1983, both teams played a league match, considered to be one of the most violent in the history of Spanish football. Official website Futbolme team profile Estadios de España
