Table of contents


the association playing in the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in the Spanish capital Madrid became to 6. March 1902 based and was called originally Madrid club de Fútbol, was allowed in the year 1920 by a decree of the Spanish king Alfonso XIII. but the royal additive material in the association names take up. Under the guidance of the long-term association president Santiago Bernabéu Madrid became material into the 1950er years the prominent soccer association of Europe. The title collection of material Madrid covers 29 Spanish Meistertitel, 17 cup victories and nine victories in the European Cup of the national masters and/or. the champions League.

Santiago Bernabéu stadium
home stadium of material Madrid

in entire association history descended material Madrid never from the first Spanish league, the today's Primera División; this applies otherwise only to Athletic Bilbao and the fiber plastic Barcelona . In the Copa del Rey, to the association 1980 a feat so far unique in Spanish football history succeeded to the Spanish cup: In the final in the Bernabéu stadium material Madrid faced each other and its branch fiber plastic Castilla playing in the second league , which had before thrown four Erstligisten from the tournament. The first crew triumphed with 6:1.

The international triumphant advance usually completely of the Madrilenen beginning in white began in the middle of the 1950er years. Player such as Di Stéfano, Puskas, who arrow-fast Gento or Rial and Kopa inspired football Europe and Madrid became material as the “white clench” famous. From 1956-1960 they won 5-mal in series the European Cup of the national masters. Thus Madrid the only European soccer association, which can issue into its Trophäensammlung in the long term an original piece of the cup of the national masters, is material. Some years later, 1966, material Madrid this Bewerb a sixth time won. At that time very young team exclusively consisted of players of Spanish origin; from the star ensemble of the 1950er years Francisco Gento had only remained in the crew.

The next international title should take time then somewhat longer. 1985 and 1986 the association could owing to the legendary “Quinta del Buitre” of two UEFA Cup victories finally celebrate. The name referred to five players of the same class from the own new generation department, which 1983/84 to the professional cadre and into the early 1990er years the success history of the association were transferred update should: Emilio Butragueño, mentioned “El Buitre”, Míchel, Manuel Sanchis, Martín Vázquez and Pardeza.

Center of the 1990er years lost material Madrid first at soil and in Spain took over the ore rival, fiber plastic Barcelona, the supremacy. 1998 succeeded however the return at the highest European point, when one defeated the favorite at that time, in the final of the champions League Juventus Turin, with 1:0 and thus to the sieved mark the “European king class” won. This success material Madrid knew 2000, with a final victory against Valencía, and 2002, by one final-follows over Bavarian Leverkusen, to repeat. Thus material Madrid has altogether 9-mal the European Cup of the national masters and/or. the champions League won. A lonely record! As almost logical consequence of long success history on national and international level the association became in the year 2000 of the world football federation FIFA as „the best football club 20. Century “excellently.


of August 2000 until February 2006 acting association president Florentino Pérez terminated the ruinous financial and transfer politics of its two predecessors, Ramón Mendoza (1984-1995) and Lorenzo of the Sanz (1995-2000) and led material Madrid within fewer years from the economic crisis. Since 2001 the club stands on solid economic columns. This succeeded to Pérez nevertheless - or perhaps also straight because - it during its term of office each season one the up-to-date most successful and concomitantly medium-most effective soccer player of the world to Madrid got. First Luis Figo (2000) was obligated by the fiber plastic Barcelona, whereupon Zinedine Zidane ( 2001) followed, Ronaldo (2002), David Beckham (2003) and Michael Owen (2004).

The cadre in Spain as „Merengues “admitted crew existed in the season 2004/05 to the half from Spaniards and to approximately a third from new generation players of the own youth department, which was developed at that time under the legendary president Santiago Bernabéu (1943-1978) and since more jeher regularly large talents brings out. According to statistic data of the Spanish league federation LFP far more than 100 professional players stood with the associations of the Primera and the Segunda División under contract in the season 2004/05, which originally originate from the youth department from material Madrid. In September 2005 the first building phase of the new training area of the association was inaugurated. The so-called „Ciudad del material Madrid “(material Madrid city) is to be large, if she is completely finished, 120 hectars and accommodate the 15 football new generation crews as well as the basketball department. For the season 2005/2006 the association counts on incomes of over 300 millions €. These incomes are to be gained by the sales by fan articles, by sponsor contracts, television incomes and admission fees.

Is stated the crew of captain Raúl, which began its career in the new generation crews of the city rival Atlético de Madrid, before he changed Madrid still as a young person too material. Likewise from the own new generation department still goal keepers Iker Casillas, which already debütierte with 17 years for material Madrid in the UEFA champions League, come Spielmacher Guti, the defense players Francisco Pavón, Raúl Bravo and Álvaro Mejía as well as spare goal keeper Diego López from the present professional cadre. Further well-known players in the cadre are the English interior defender Jonathan Woodgate, the defensive midfield players Iván Helguera and Thomas Gravesen as well as the counsels for the defense Roberto Carlos and Michel Salgado. For the season 2005/06 has material Madrid and. A. the Brazilian dribbling artist Robinho of the former Pelé - club fiber plastic Santos as well as Offensivallrounder Júlio Baptista of the fiber plastic Sevilla obligates. Michael Owen, the 2004 for 12 millions € from the fiber plastic Liverpool came, left the association after only one season again and went for 22,5 millions € to Newcastle United. Owen sat with material Madrid quite often only on the bank and was dissatisfied therefore. Besides the association at the end of the transfer period obligated for approximately 25 millions € the defender Sergio Ramos of the league competitor fiber plastic Sevilla. By further transfers the uruguayische midfield player Pablo García came and likewise from Uruguay coming right counsels for the defense of Carlo Diogo as well as in the transfer period in January 2006 the right offensive defender Cicinho to the club. Last transfer was the obligation of the Italian Stürmers Antonio Cassano of as Roma for 5,5 millions €, which is used however rather rarely for the time being.

current & conceptualness

as one of the most renowned soccer associations of the world Madrid is material each year center of a multiplicity of medium reports over allegedly which are approaching player transfers, from which however only the few beyond the rumor stage. Particularly in Germany at present upon the fact it is speculated whether national player becomes Michael Ballack with material Madrid of the successors of Zinedine Zidane, which announced to terminate its active career after the WM 2006. Also the French Stürmerstar Thierry Henry, since 1999 in services of the fiber plastic arsenal, is again and again brought as allegedly a “hot candidate” with material Madrid in the discussion.

In the German-speaking countries material Madrid is often called under the synonyms „material “or „the royal ones “, although neither one nor the other one result in a sense. In Spain numerous institutions are by a decree of the king house provided with the additive „material “, not least also eight associations of the Primera División, the first Spanish league. Material Madrid is thereby just as few under the contraction „material “well-known as under a Spanish term, which would equal the designation often used in German „the royal ones “. Interesting and remarkably it is however that this concerns exclusively the German linguistic usage. Correct way is material Madrid under the designation “El material Madrid” or, in short form, under “El Madrid” well-known. With “royal” also in principle nothing could be shortened meaningfully in the Spanish linguistic usage.


the legendary Estadio Santiago Bernabéu was inaugurated 1947 and replaced thereby the former play place of the association, the Chamartín stadium. Since that time the Bernabéu was continuously developed and modernized. After the last larger change, which was locked in the year 2005, it than “5-Sterne-Stadion so mentioned” is considered and belongs thereby to the most modern football stadiums of the world. Approximately 81,000 spectators find place, numerous gastronomische mechanisms and the “Sala de Trófeos”, in addition who become famous Trophäensammlung of the association, accommodated. The Bernabéu was in its history also the venue of numerous important tournaments, among them some final plays of the Spanish cup as well as several plays of the FIFA soccer world championship of 1982, under it the large WM-final. By its closed and steeply high-rising up building method the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu applies as a witch boiler. The former player, coach and director of sport of material Madrid, who coined/shaped Argentinier Jorge Valdano, the term „miedo escénico “, „the szenischen fear “, which seizes the opposing players with its intake into the stadium. Straight one with European Cup plays can be experienced in this stadium a grandiose atmosphere. Combat spirit and technical quality are always recompenced of „madridistas “in the stadium with particularly much applause. If a player does not show however the necessary employment, the public can be also very critical. Thus it occurred in the past Saisonen quite often that players, as for instance Ronaldo, were discharged after desireless achievement with a gellenden whistling and booing. The Zuseher is always fair nevertheless in the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. Thus for instance in the last championship duel with the ore rival fiber plastic Barcelona Ronaldinho, whose grandiose achievement decided the play for Barcelona, was considered after its second gate with “standing ovations”.
