Royal Madrid Football Club), commonly known as Real Madrid (and in Spain, in football circles, simply as el Madrid) is a professional association football club based in Madrid, Spain. It is the most successful team in Spanish football and was voted by FIFA as the most successful club of the 20th century, having won a record 31 La Liga titles, 17 Spanish "Copa del Rey" Cups, 8 Spanish Supercups, 1 Copa Eva Duarte, a record 9 UEFA Champions Leagues, 2 UEFA Cups, 1 UEFA Supercup, and 3 Intercontinental Cups. Real Madrid was a founding member of FIFA and the now-defunct G–14 group of Europe's leading football clubs as well as its replacement, the European Club Association. The word "Real" in the club's name is the Spanish term for "royal", and was given by the King in 1920 together with the royal crown in the emblem – several teams in Spain have got this royal distinction: Real Sociedad, Real Unión de Irún, Real Betis, and Real Zaragoza. - Source: Wikipedia
