Villarreal CF

They are called El Submarino Amarillo, meaning the yellow submarine. It will remind you of the famous song Yellow Submarine by the Beatles, after which Villarreal got this nickname. Their main club colour is of course also yellow, with their home jerseys being almost completely yellow. Outdoors, on the other hand, they play in pink or alternative black and red jerseys. They play at the Estadio de la Cerámica, which has a capacity of 29,890 seats.

Rise to the elite

The club was founded in the city of Villarreal, in the Valencia region of eastern Spain, in 1923. At that time it was still called Villarreal CD and was made up mainly of local workers. They took up football as a hobby in their spare time. Their first stadium was the Campo de Deportes, where in 1923 the team played a friendly match against the local club Castellón. In the early days, Villarreal moved around in regional competitions and the lower divisions of professional football, which they changed many times.

It reached the second highest league competition, the Segunda División, in the 1970/71 season. However, it lasted only one more season there, and after finishing at the tail of the table, the club faced a rapid relegation. They spent a longer period in the Segunda División for the first time between the 1992/93 and 1997/98 seasons. It was in the last season of this streak that team was promoted to La Liga for the first time thanks to his place. They therefore played it for the first time in 1998/99, but finished 18th and went down a level again.

However, as finished 3rd in the Segunda División the following season, they quickly returned to La Liga and played there continuously between the 2000/01 and 2011/12 seasons. His best finish during this period was 2nd position in 2007/08 and overall the club was quite high. Although they were in the second division for the 2012/13 season, they immediately returned to La Liga, where they were again at the top of the table.

European Cups

The club has won the Intertoto Cup in 2003 and 2004. It was a semi-finalist in the UEFA Champions League in the 2005/06 season and also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League 3 times, in 2003/04, 2010/11 and 2015/16. In the 2018/19 season, it finished in the quarter-finals there.
