Just 114 years ago, a famous football club Madrid was established. Spain's club Madrid was founded in 1902, on the same day of six March. Its name changed in 1920 with the addition of the then King King Alphonso. In Spanish, riyal means royal.
The emblem of the new club was made a royal crown as soon as the king was added. Unlike other clubs, members of Riyal Madrid were its owners and used to handle their own expenses from the beginning.
As of today, this club is among the richest clubs in the world in terms of earning. The club has the most expensive footballer like Gareth Bale and one of the best stars in the game, Cristiano Ronaldo. The club has won the Champions League, the biggest championship in club football, nine times so far.
Real Madrid was founded on the days when football arrived with Spanish students studying at Cambridge and Oxford University. In 1905, Club Madrid won the Spanish Cup, three years after its founding. After 1920, the club was called Real Madrid.
By the way, in Spanish its full name is Real Madrid C.F. (Real Madrid Club de Fútbol).
