Levante Union Deportiva (or Llevant Unió Esportiva in Valencian) is a Spanish football currently plying their trade in the Spanish first division. They are traditionally a little club and whipping boys and are playing in the Spanish top flight for only the fifth season. Levante however were founded earlier than the other and more famous of clubs in the city, Valencia CF.

Levante FC was originaly founded in 1909 and although they were successful in their early years, they could never really challenge to surface to the very top and group themselves among the cream of Spanish football clubs. In 1939, Levante FC and another Valencia club Gimnastico FC merged to become Unión Deportiva Levante-Gimnástico and in 1941 adopted their current name.

But it was only in the 1963-1964 that Levante UD could eventually manage to taste La Liga football. But they survived just two seasons in the Spanish first division then and immediately went down into oblivion in the Segunda division and beyond. They returned to the first division years later in 2004 but slipped back again after just one season.

However they bounced back and won promotion the very next year and the 2007-2008 season is the second successive season that Levante have been playing first division footall. But there will be no more top flight joy for next season since Levate have been confirmed relegated for this season.

Levante play their home matches at the 25,354 capacity Ciudad de Valencia and are coached by Jose Angel Moreno. Levante bear the nickname Los Granotes.
