Founded in 1903 by Madrid students, the club was initially meant as an addition to Athletic Bilbao. However, the team showed quite good results, and in 1907 decided to register officially. In 1913 Atletico Madrid players got their first ground, but, unfortunately, that didn’t lead the team to success. The first title was waiting for Atletico only in 1940 when the club recovered after the Spanish Civil War and won their first national championship.
The following season Atletico Madrid results stayed the same — they became Spanish champions. In 1950 and 1951 the club replicated the success, winning two domestic titles consecutively. The next Spanish champion’s title was waiting for the team only in 1966. Until that time, the club managed to win three Spanish Cups.
In 1959, the club met its main local rival, Real Madrid, in the European Cup final. Atletico Madrid players lost that match, but the following year avenged their Madrid competitors in the Spanish Cup final. Such fixtures led to the rivalry between Atletico and Real, known as ‘Madrid derby’, which is still strong.
Atletico’s ‘golden period’ started with the arrival of Vicente Calderon as a club’s president. During Calderon era, Atletico Madrid results were replenished by 4 Primera titles, the same number of Spanish Cups, and one European Cup.
When Calderon left in 1987, the club became a little less successful. Though Atletico Madrid fixtures were distinguished by ‘beautiful football’, they could win neither the top-flight nor the cup for years. However, in 1996 Spain heard of Atletico again, when they reached the double of La Liga and Spanish Cup.
In 2000 Atletico was relegated to Segunda for the first time in 65 years and returned to the top-flight two years later. Since then, the club won the Primera once, got one Spanish Cup, one Spanish Super Cup, two Champions League titles, two Europa Leagues, and two UEFA Super Cups.
