Unión Española is a Chilean soccer club based in Santiago currently playing in the Primera División de Chile – the highest tier of the Chilean football system. The club has won six national league championships but none since 2005. Unión topped the Chilean Primera División during the 2009 regular season but fell short of winning the season title in the final of the playoffs when it was defeated by Universidad de Chile.
Unión Española presented its squad and Joma home outfield player and goalkeeper kits for the 2011 season on Thursday night at their Estadio Santa Laura. The new strip was worn for the first time during the subsequent pre-season 3-1 loss to Colo Colo.
Unión Española will next face Bolivian side Bolivar in a home and away Copa Libertadores qualification play-off series on January 27th and February 3rd.
