Though Club Deportivo Leganes hails from just outside one of the capitals of European football, Madrid, the small club has largely flown under the radar. That was until 2016, when CD Leganes burst onto the scene with their promotion to Spain's premier league, La Liga. Now the small-town dark horse is fighting against some of Europe's biggest teams and they want your support. Club Deportivo Leganes tickets are available now to be purchased or sold at StubHub.
The history of the Pepineros
The story of CD Leganes, or as they are popularly known, Los Pepineros Lega (The Cucumber Growers Lega), is in many ways a story of triumph. They are in a real-life David and Goliath situation. Born in the agricultural town Leganes, whose cucumber fame spawned the team's nickname, throughout its history , the team has often been overshadowed by its neighbouring giants Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Humbly, the team has made its way from division to division, slowly working their way up through the various Spanish leagues. Though it took a few decades, the team is now in the top division of Spanish football. Just one small-town team with a stadium that fits a fraction of what the goliaths across the way can fit in their stadiums. But this is the charm of CD Leganes - posessing Club Deportivo tickets is proof as a fan that you aren't just a title-follower in love with the biggest teams. What the Pepineros lack in titles, they make up for in history. They are a veritable workman's tale of rising up step by step to challenge the greats.
The Pepineros experience
For the Pepineros, their struggles and ambitions are on a smaller scale than other larger teams and this is what makes their matches such exciting affairs. Every match could be the start of a new chapter in the book of Leganes. A Leganes match is much like seeing an epic live in the making. For example, in 2017, for the first time ever, CD Leganes defeated Real Madrid in the quarterfinals of La Copa to make it to the semi-finals where, they lost to eventual champions FC Barcelona. The magic of this moment was that while this was but a disappointing defeat for Real Madrid, it was the greatest triumph yet for the up-and-coming Club Deportivo Leganes. You simply never know what dark horse Leganes is going to do next. The sky's the limit for the team, and that makes their matches some of the most exhilarating to witness.
