Girona FC was founded on July 23, 1930, covering the void that had been left by the disappearance of Unión Deportiva Girona which had been set up a mere decade earlier, after the club folded due to financial difficulties.

The first official goal was scored by Clara in a 1-1 draw at the Colonia Artigas grounds and the starting eleven on the day, led by Josep Viñas, was made up of Florenza, Teixidor, Farró, Flavià, Comas, Corradi, Ferrer, Escuder, Clara, Tarradellas and Torrellas.

After just five years, Girona was already well on its way to glory. Despite the fact that Iborra and Balmanya had been transferred to FC Barcelona before the start of the 1935/36 season, ​​the team managed to clinch the title becoming Second Division champions, although promotion to the First Division eluded them on this occasion.

After more than three decades alternating between different divisions, Girona FC would eventually make a significant qualitative leap with the construction of the new stadium at Montilivi. The stadium was inaugurated on August 14th, 1970 with a game against FC Barcelona ending in a (1-3) victory for the visitors. Vivolas scored Girona's first goal at their new grounds.

Ten years later, in 1980, Barça would once again visit Montilivi to celebrate Girona’s 50th anniversary. This same year, the club were to take on both Real Madrid and Real Sociedad, the two teams who would go on to dispute the First Division League championship title.

After a fitful period spanning a quarter of a century in which the reddish-white team were relegated to the regional Catalan First Division, the team is currently enjoying its golden era. Over the past four seasons, Girona FC have contested the paly-offs for promotion to the First Division, only to see their long-awaited hopes dashed by Almeria, Zaragoza and Osasuna.
