About Real Madrid B

Real Madrid Castilla is a Spanish football league teams team that plays in the Segunda División B. It is the reserve team of Real Madrid. They play their home games at Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.

Unlike the English football league system, reserve teams in Spain play in the same Spanish football league system as their senior team rather than a separate league. However, reserve teams cannot play in the same division as their senior team. Therefore Real Madrid Castilla are ineligible for promotion to the La Liga. Reserve teams are also no longer permitted to enter the Copa del Rey. In addition only under-23 players, or under-25 players with a professional contract can switch between senior and reserve teams.


AD Plus Ultra

In 1948 Agrupación Deportiva Plus Ultra, a local amateur team, then playing in the Tercera División, agreed to become a feeder club for Real Madrid. Originally formed in 1930, the team took its name from the Plus Ultra (motto). Real gave AD Plus Ultra financial support and in return were given first refusal on the club's best players. By 1949 they made their debut in the Segunda División and in 1952 the club became the official Real reserve team. In 1959, they reached the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, losing 7-2 on aggregate to eventual finalists Granada CF.

During the 1950s and 1960s future Real Madrid players and Spain national football team internationals such as José María Zárraga, Enrique Mateos, Ramón Marsal Ribo, Pedro Casado, Juan Manuel Villa, José María Vidal, Fernando Serena and Ramón Grosso all spent time at the club. Luis Aragonés also briefly played for AD Plus Ultra and Miguel Muñoz began his coaching career at the club. In 1972 AD Plus Ultra folded because of the demise of the insurance company of the same name and their position in the Tercera División was taken by Castilla Club de Fútbol the new reserve team for Real Madrid on July 21.

Castilla CF

As Castilla CF the team enjoyed something of a golden age. During this era, with a team that included Agustín Rodríguez Santiago, Ricardo Gallego and Francisco Pineda, Castilla CF reached the final of the 1979-80 Copa del Rey. During their cup run they beat four La Liga teams including Hércules CF, Athletic Bilbao, Real Sociedad and Sporting de Gijón. The latter two eventually finished second and third in the Primera División. In the final they played Real Madrid but lost 6-1. However because Real also won La Liga, Castilla CF qualified for the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup 1980-81. Despite beating West Ham United F.C. 3-1 in the opening game at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, they lost the return 5-1 after extra time and went out in the first round. Castilla CF reached the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey on three further occasions in 1984, 1986 and 1988.

In 1984 with Amancio Amaro as coach Castilla CF won the Segunda División. Amaro's tenure as coach saw the rise of the famous Quinta del Buitre - Emilio Butragueño, Manuel Sanchís Hontiyuelo, Rafael Martín Vázquez, José Miguel González Martín and Miguel Pardeza Pichardo. However Castilla CF were ineligible for promotion because Real Madrid were already in the Primera División. In 1987/88 they finished third in the Segunda División, but were once again ineligible for promotion.

Real Madrid B

In 1991 the Royal Spanish Football Federation banned the use of separate names for reserve teams and Castilla CF became known as Real Madrid Deportiva and then Real Madrid B. In the early 1990s two former Castilla CF players, Vicente Del Bosque and Rafael Benítez, began their coaching careers with the team. In 1997 the team was relegated to the Segunda División B, but despite this they continued to produce great players. These have included Raúl González, Raúl Bravo, José María Gutiérrez and Iker Casillas, who all became established members of the senior Real Madrid team. In addition former Real Madrid B players such as Ismael Urzaiz, Santiago Cañizares, Juan Mata, Mista (footballer) and Luis García Fernández all moved on to successful careers with other La Liga clubs.

Real Madrid Castilla

In the 2004/05 season, coach Juan Ramón López Caro guided the team back to the Segunda División and the team subsequently revived the el Castilla name and became known as Real Madrid Castilla. In 2006 the new stadium of the club's training facilities Ciudad Real Madrid was named the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium and Francisco Moreno Cariñena became the first independent chairman in sixteen years.

The team has continued to produce quality players such as Roberto Soldado who is currently playing in the Valencia CF first team, and Álvaro Arbeloa Coca who played for Deportivo de La Coruña and Liverpool FC in the past and has now re-joined Real Madrid's first team.

In the 2006/07 season, the team was relegated to the second division B under the management of ex- Real Madrid legend Míchel (footballer) after occuping 19th place in the league and a disappointing season. Michel received a lot of criticism, and accepted all the blame for the team bad performances especially for those who had a wonderful season in the 2005/06 season like De la Red, Granero and Javi Garcia. The reserves produced other quality players including Juan Manuel Mata who plays for Chelsea FC and Álvaro Negredo Sánchez who plays for Sevilla FC.
