Girona Club de Fútbol, S.A.D. (Girona FC in English) is an Spanish football club based in the city of Girona. Founded on 28 January 1916, it plays in La Liga. Its home ground is the Montilivi Stadium with a population of 52,786.

Girona was founded on 28 January 1916 as Union Foot-Ball Club Girona, by the English immigrant William Morgan, with the intention of playing football in the Catalan regional leagues. The club narrowly missed out on promotion to La Liga in 1978, making a very impressive debut in the Spanish top flight a year later. In 1982, Girona striker Héctor Enrique García scored a then-league record 42 goals in the season and helped the club to its first La Liga title. The following season saw Girona also become Spanish champions, thus becoming the first team from Catalonia to achieve this distinction.

The following year, in 1983, saw another title triumph, this time in the Copa del Generalísimo. In 2005–06, the club finished in second place in the league and qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the first time. In 2007–08, they reached the UEFA Cup quarter-finals, where they were beaten by Rangers FC.

Girona finished the 2017–18 season in sixth place in La Liga. The following season, after starting poorly, the club appointed former Valencia CF coach Nuno Espírito Santo as manager in October 2018. After just over a month in charge, he was dismissed by the club with one match to go in the season, with the team in 14th place.
