Real Valladolid is a Spanish football club based in the city of Valladolid, in Castile and León. The club was founded in 1928 and was created by the merger of the clubs Real Unión Deportiva and Club Deportivo Español. The first president of the club was Pedro Zuloaga Mañueco. The club's first team has been playing in the Primera División, the top division in Spanish football, since the 2022/23 season.

The club's first game was on September 22, 1928 against Deportivo Alavés, which Real Valladolid won 2-1. Initially, the club played on a pitch near Valladolid's bullring before moving to the old Municipal Stadium, José Zorrilla, in 1940. For the 1982 World Cup, this stadium was replaced by the current Estadio José Zorrilla, where the club now plays and has its headquarters.

Real Valladolid first gained promotion to the Primera División in the 1947/48 season after becoming champions of the second division. The team achieved direct resurgence in the 1958/59 season after relegation in the previous season. Under coach Antoni Ramallets, the club finished fourth in the first division in the 1962/63 season, which is their best result in the club's history to date.

In total, Real Valladolid played 37 seasons in the Primera División, 27 in the Segunda División, one in the Segunda División B and nine in the Tercera División. The club has twice reached the cup final (1950, 1989) and reached the cup semi-finals four times (1942, 1952, 1961 and 1979). In the 1983/84 season the club won its first official title, the Spanish League Cup.

Real Valladolid have qualified for three European competitions: in the 1984/85 and 1997/98 UEFA Cup and in the 1989/90 European Cup Winners' Cup, where they reached the quarter-finals but lost on penalties to AS Monaco.

After 13 consecutive years in the first division, they were relegated to the Segunda División in 2004. After two seasons in the second division, Real Valladolid managed to get promoted back to the Primera División in the 2006/07 season. The club achieved the primary goal in the 2007/08 season, relegation.

In February 2010, coach José Luis Mendilibar was sacked and replaced by Onésimo, who was also sacked in April of the same year. At the end of the 2009/10 season, Real Valladolid was relegated to the Segunda División in nineteenth place.

Returning to La Liga in 2012 was a major milestone for Real Valladolid after two seasons in the second division. The club was able to establish itself in the top division in the following period and celebrate some successes.

In September 2018, former world footballer Ronaldo bought 51 percent of the club's shares, becoming the main shareholder and president of Real Valladolid.


Since then he has set himself the goal of modernizing the club and making it more successful in the long term. The club also relies on strong training and support for young talent. With Pacheta as head coach and a strong squad, Real Valladolid are now aiming to thrive and keep improving in La Liga.
