This page lists historical and other events on June 5th in Catalonia and the Catalan-speaking countries as well as festivals and a list of births and deaths of well-known Catalans.
1907 - Vila de Gràcia: Club Esportiu Europa, as it is known today, is founded in 1907, following the merger of two modests clubs (Provençal and Madrid de Barcelona). When looking for a name, they decided to adopt the name of a club that was about to disappear, FC Europa, so they could register automatically. With a minor name change, Club Deportivo Europa was founded on June 5th 1907. The first president was Rodolf Collell Admetller, who presided over Europa until 1911, when he became vicepresident of the Federació Catalana de Futbol.
2004 - Jerez de la Frontera (Cadiz, Andalusia): Llevant win the points to return to the Primera División of La Liga, where they had played in the 1963-64 and 1964-65 seasons.
