Balearic Islands Association football

The islands’ most prominent football club is RCD Mallorca from Palma, currently playing in the top-tier LaLiga in 2021. Founded in 1916, it is the oldest club in the islands, and won its only Copa del Rey title in 2003 and was the runner-up in the 1999 European Cup Winners’ Cup.

RCD Mallorca contests the long-standing Palma derby with the other established team on the islands, CD Atlético Baleares.

The islands also have another professional football club since 2015: UD Ibiza, a phoenix club of UD Ibiza-Eivissa, itself a phoenix of SD Ibiza.

The islands also have an islands’ unofficial national team, as well as an unofficial Menorcan national team. Local clubs play in the regional divisions managed by the Balearic Islands Football Federation.
