Real Madrid C.F. It is the most successful club in football history. He is the only one with the record figures of 13 European Cups and 33 Leagues LaLiga football titles.
Real Madrid was founded in 1902. Julián Palacios is the first president, but it was Juan Padrós, Catalan and from Barcelona, who formally established the institution that year. The interest in football grew so much in Spain that Madrid proposed to hold a tournament in honor of King Alfonso XIII. The initiative became the Spanish Cup (Copa del Rey).
With a growing number of members, the club saw the need to change the grounds where he played to increase the number of spectators and to raise more money. He moved to the O'Donell stadium. And it was then, in 1920, when the King of Spain granted the title of Real to the club.
At the beginning of the 20s, Real Madrid returned to its pioneering role in Spanish football. The team made a series of trips outside Spain, with enormous international success. Real Madrid is one of the founders of the National League Championship, in 1928, and has never descended to Second Division.
Real Madrid, spanish football club had accepted the fact that the success they were looking for could only be possible with the best players. Goalkeeper Zamora and defenses Ciriaco and Quincoces were signed. The trio formed the best defense in the world. The 1931-32 season was historic for the team trained by Lippo Hertza. The meringues finished without a league without losing a single match. It was the beginning of an era of dominance of Real Madrid during the Second Republic: 2 leagues and 2 Cups in 4 years.
Only one month after the victory in the Republic Cup in 1936, the Civil War broke out. The moment of glory was threatened first and then destroyed by the military conflict. Many players finished their careers or left the country to go into exile. The team would not recover until long after the war. The president of Real Madrid when the conflict began, Sánchez Guerra, was exiled, and an interim president, Antonio Ortega, was executed by the Franco regime after the Civil War. Due to the war in Madrid, the club tried to play the Catalan Republican League outside the conflict, thanks in part to the club's Catalan coach, Francisco Brau. But despite the support of the players union and all other Catalan clubs, F.C. Barcelona vetoed its participation.
The Civil War and the postwar period were an absolute tragedy for the team for more than a decade. Real Madrid would not win any league between 1933 and 1954, its worst streak in its history; and only 2 Cups, in 1946 and 1947. He was also twice on the verge of descending to Second Division. The local rival, Atlético, was supported by the army that had won the conflict. On the other hand, as a club that had supported the Republic, it did not generate sympathies in the regime of Francisco Franco and during the first 15 years of Franco the club was in the weakest position in its history.
In 1943, in the semifinals of Copa, Real Madrid faced F.C. Barcelona. In Les Corts, the Catalans won 3-0. In the return, Madrid eliminated its rival with a historic comeback. 11-0, and a rivalry that already existed became eternal.
On December 15, 1943 Santiago Bernabéu became the president of the club. Former player and coach, he became the most important man in the history of Real Madrid. French journalists Gabriel Hanot and Jacques Ferrán dreamed of a competition that brought together the champions of each European country. Among them they made a series of rules that reached the headquarters of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). The proposal really pleased those responsible for the French newspaper L’Equipe, which undertook with UEFA to organize the tournament. They appointed a commission that included Santiago Bernabéu as one of the vice presidents. The championship became a reality in 1956: the European Cup was born.
Real Madrid won their first European Cup on June 13 of that year. It would be the first of five consecutive cups he would win. This unique feat was achieved in part thanks to one of the greatest footballer in history, Alfredo Di Stéfano, under the presidency of Santiago Bernabéu.
Madrid discovered Di Stéfano on the 50th anniversary of the club, in 1952, when the team faced the Millionaires. Since then the club noticed him and finally managed to sign him. He became the best player in the history of Real Madrid being the leader of the team that would win 5 consecutive European Cups, 8 leagues and become the greatest dynasty in football history.
No other club has managed to match their exploits. The team was composed of legends, apart from the Argentine Alfredo di Stéfano, such as the Hungarian Ferenc Puskas, the Frenchman Raymond Kopa or the Spanish Francisco Gento, current President of honor of the club and who holds the unique record in the world of champion of 6 Cups of Europe.
In the 1959-1960 season, former club player Miguel Muñoz became a coach. He won the fifth consecutive European Cup in his first season as a player and became the first to win the trophy as a player (three times) and as a coach. In 1960 the meringues would be crowned as the first world champions to win the first edition of the Intercontinental Cup, beating the Peñarol of Montevideo 5-1.
In the 60s the team faced a period of changes. In Spain he dominated without rival, winning 8 League titles in that decade: in the 50s the club had won more European Cups than leagues. And he also won the Sixth European Cup in 1966 (that year he did not win the League).
Football dressed in mourning when the president who had taken Real Madrid to the top died on June 2, 1978. The 70s had been the only decade since the creation of European competitions in which Madrid had not won any international title, although in return it won another 6 leagues in that decade.
Real Madrid would then begin a new golden era. First, 32 years later, he was again European champion. But not only once: he won 3 Champions Leagues in 5 years: the Seventh in 1998, the Eighth in 2000 and the Ninth in 2002. The canterano Raúl and legends like Hierro, Roberto Carlos or Redondo accompanied the triumphs.
In 2000 Florentino Pérez became president and began the so-called Galactic era. In those first 4 years he won 1 Champions League (the Ninth European Cup) 2 leagues and created a dream team with the best stars in the world of football: Figo, Zidane, Ronaldo, Beckham joined Raúl, Hierro or Casillas.
Real Madrid won 2 more leagues in 2007 and 2008 under the direction of Fabio Capello and Bernd Schuster. But after a horrible 2009 season, Florentino Pérez returned to the presidency to try to restore the morale of Madrid and strengthen the team.
In the second term of Florentino he signed the best Real Madrid player after Di Stéfano, Cristiano Ronaldo, and a plethora of stars such as Benzema, Xabi Alonso, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale or Toni Kroos. Star technicians like José Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti or the rookie and former football legend like Zinedine Zidane trained the team.
In these years, Real Madrid won 2 Champions League in two infarct finals against city rivals, Atlético de Madrid, with heroic performances by captain and legend Sergio Ramos. The Tenth came in 2014 after 12 years of European drought thanks to a goal in the 93rd minute and the Eleventh in a penalty shootout in 2016. The club also won a league in 2012 that beat all national records with 100 points and 121 goals.
Both the 2016-2017 and 2018-19 seasons were historic. In 2017, Real Madrid became the first team to repeat the title in the Champions League format and the first time since 1958 that the club won both the League and the European Cup. Together with the Club World Cup and the Super Cups of Spain and Europas, it became the best year in the history of Real Madrid as a football club.
In the 2018-19 season, Real Madrid became the first sports club to win both the European Cup of football and basketball (the Tenth of this section) the same year. The 13th European Cup was also the third in a row and the fourth in 5 years. It is a dynasty compared to any other football… except Real Madrid de Bernabéu, Di Stéfano and Gento.
Real Madrid is the king of Europe and Spain and although the rivals have come and gone to face him in the history of football, nobody comes close to his legacy.
The Santiago Bernabéu stadium has a capacity of 81,000 spectators. Around 80% of the capacity is occupied by Real Madrid members who have a subscription, while the rest of the tickets are sold to the general public.
The animation stand of Real is the Grada FANS RMCF. He was born with the spirit of uniting Madrid players who want to cheer the team unconditionally both in Santiago Bernabéu and outside it. He wants to receive all Real Madrid players who believe in an animation without violence, politics, racism and intolerance, open to all ages and with only one feeling: MADRIDISM.
2000 Real Madrid players from all countries, ideologies, races, beliefs and sexes go to the Grada FANS dressed in white from Real Madrid to support their team every game.
