Real Madrid is about to mark its 121st anniversary. On 6 March 1902, the first Board of Directors of the Madrid Football Club was officially elected. That was the beginning of the legacy of the best club in the world. 121 years later, Real Madrid is a benchmark in world sport with its 24 European Cups (14 in football and 10 in basketball) and boasts the honour of being named as the Greatest Club of the 20th Century by FIFA.
Another source of pride for Real Madrid supporters is the Santiago Bernabéu, which is undergoing renovations so as to continue to be a symbol of sport and to turn it into a major avant-garde and global icon. In addition, Real Madrid City is the best sports complex in the world and continues to thrive 17 years after its inauguration. Lastly, the club participates in solidarity and cultural projects organized by the Real Madrid Foundation.
