Real Zaragoza

Real Zaragoza are a Spanish football team from Zaragoza in Aragón. Founded on March 18 1902, they currently play in the Segunda División.

They play in white with blue shorts. Home stadium is the \La Romareda that seats 35,000 spectators.

Originally formed out of two rival teams, Iberia SC and Real Zaragoza CD. By the 1930s, the team was making headway in the leagues, but the Civil War put a brake on a lot of the progress made.

On September 8 1957 the team left their original stadium (the Torrero) for the La Romareda.

It was not until the 1960s that Zaragoza would see their first successes, in the Copa del Rey. Fans of the side had to wait until the 1980s to experience another victory in the cup competition.

Real Zaragoza have played the majority of their history, a total of forty four seasons, in the Primera División. Being more of a specialist cup side, they have not managed to win the league, although they have come second on one occasion. In the 2001-02 season they were unfortunately relegated from the Primera for the first time in over a decade.
