Estadio San Bernabéu

Yesterday, Bianca and I toured the stadium Santiago Bernabéu of the world's best ever soccer team REAL MADRID! 

In international competitons Real Marid won a record of nine UEFA Champions Leagues, two UEFA Cups and one UEFA Super Cup as well as three International Cups. On the national level, the club has won a record 31 La Liga titles, 18 Copas del Rey, eight Spanish Super Cups and some more prizes. No other club in the world has owned more prizes!

Founded in 1902 by Juan and Carlos Padrós, the football club has never been relegated from La Liga, Spain's top league. The name "real"  is the Spanish term for "royal", and was given by King Alfonso XIII in 1920 together with the royal crown in the emblem.According to Forbes Magazine of June 2011, the club is the world's richest soccer club in terms of revenue (EUR 438.6 mio) and the second in terms of value (EUR 1.4 bio).

A great afternoon :)
