General

Real Madrid is a football club from Madrid that plays in the Primera División, the first Spanish league. The club is famous for its successes and has never faced relegation in its history. This only applies to two other Spanish clubs: Athletic Bilbao and FC Barcelona.

Real Madrid is one of the most successful football clubs in the world, having won 14 European Cups and UEFA Champions Leagues, making them the most successful club in Europe and the world. Between 1956 and 1960, Real Madrid won the first five European Cups and are the only club to have retained the title since the inception of the UEFA Champions League. The club has also won a total of 13 other international titles.

In addition to the soccer department, Real Madrid also has a successful basketball department. This was also able to achieve many international successes, including eight European Cup victories and two victories in the EuroLeague.

Unlike most top European clubs, Real Madrid is not a corporation and is not owned by a private individual. The club is wholly owned by its 93,176 club members, also known as socios. This number is limited by the statutes of the association. However, anyone can become an official fan (Madridista) and the number of fans currently stands at over a million.

Real Madrid is respected around the world for its unique track record at national and international level and has won multiple awards. In 2000, for example, the club was named "Best Football Club of the 20th Century" by FIFA, the world football association, and in 2020 it was honored as "Best Football Club of the Century So Far" at the Globe Soccer Awards.

The club has an eventful history, which is characterized by sporting successes, but also by financial difficulties and internal conflicts.

Ramón Mendoza was club president from 1984 to 1995, followed by Lorenzo Sanz from 1995 to 2000. Both implemented ruinous financial and transfer policies that plunged Real Madrid into an economic crisis. Florentino Pérez took over as club president in August 2000 and led the club out of this crisis.

In the following years, Real Madrid increased its revenue by over 600%. In the 2018/19 financial period, sales were already EUR 757 million, while equity reached a record high of EUR 533 million. The financial liabilities amounted to 174 million euros, with the club showing no net debt. Personnel expenses as a percentage of annual revenue were reduced from 86% in 2000 to 52% in the 2018/19 financial year, well below the 70% benchmark required by UEFA's Financial Fair Play Regulations.

Real Madrid is the highest-grossing football club in the world and also has the highest value of any football club.

 

The Real Madrid brand was valued at €1.646 billion in 2019, the highest value of any football club. The club have signed many well-known players including Luís Figo, Zinédine Zidane, Ronaldo, David Beckham, Michael Owen and Robinho.

Real Madrid's most important sponsors include: Emirates airline as shirt sponsor and Adidas as supplier.
