Founded in 1902 as Madrid Football Club, the team has traditionally worn a white home kit since. The word Real is Spanish forRoyal and was bestowed to the club by King Alfonso XIII in 1920 together with the royal crown in the emblem. The team has played its home matches in the 81,044-capacity Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in downtown Madrid since 1947.
In the present period, Real Madrid are once again setting the benchmark for world football. On 24 May 2014, the club claimed their tenth European Cup and on 20 December of the same year lifted the Club World Cup. A European Super Cup and a Copa del Rey were also won with Carlo Ancelotti at the helm. Before the Italian's arrival, the Whites lifted three trophies under the stewardship of José Mourinho. The Portuguese coach left at the end of the 2012-13 campaign. In June 2015, Rafa Benítez took charge of a new and exciting project.
