The club also has youth and amateur women's teams for competition.
Football became of a particular interest in Girona at the beginning of the 20th century. The first major club in the city was Strong Esport (founded in 1902 under original name of FC Gerundense). In the 1920s in Girona there were two new clubs, CE Gironi and UD Girona. After the disappearance of the UD Girona it was decided to create a new football team in the city.
On 23 July 1930, in the cafe Norat in La Rambla of Girona, Girona Futbol Club was founded upon the dissolution of Unio Esportiva Girona for economic reasons. On 1 August 1930 the city council authorized the club so that it could use the city's emblem on its badges. It was achieved thanks to the efforts of enthusiasts led by the club's first president Albert de Quintana de Leon.
