Football enthusiasts and team supporters are advised to buy Deportivo tickets as soon as they get the time, so as to reserve a seat for themselves in the stands.
Full named Real Club Deportivo de La Coruna, which translates roughly to the “A Coruna’s Royal Sporting Club”, this team was officially established in 1906, after the sport gained massive popularity throughout Coruna, Galicia. Jose Maria Abalo has been accredited with introducing this game to the city, upon his return from England in 1902. The initial lineup of the football team consisted of members who were a part of the Sala Calvet Gymnasium with Luis Cornide being named the first president of the club. A year later, Deportivo was granted the “Real” denomination by Alfonso XIII of Spain after which it started playing friendly matches at the Corral de la Gaiteira also known as the Piper’s Yard. It then moved to the Old Razior, more popularly known as Estadio Municipal de Razior, a multi-use stadium that boasts seating space for over thirty four thousand spectators.
With the 1920 Olympics that were held at Antwerp, Deportivo was able to gain recognition and a professional status as a football club. Even though the team did not gather any wins in its initial years, it showed a massive level of skill, beating Real Madrid in the 1932 Cup. Then in the 1940-41 seasons, the team was able to defeat Murcia with a score of 2-1 which qualified them to achieve advancement to La Liga, a feat they achieved for the very first time. The team competed successfully for more than a decade which is often referred to as the “Golden Decade” for Deportivo. Staying within the top ten placements at the end of each season, the year 1949 saw the arrival of South American players to the club under the directional leadership of Argentinean Alejandro Scopelli. The players included Rafael Franco, Oswaldo Garcia, Julio Corcuera and Dagoberto Moll, who led Deportivo to become a top football franchise for the next nine seasons. After this came the “yo-yo era” during which the team got the nickname the Elevator Team. Achieving promotions to La Liga in 1962, 64, 66, 68 and 71, Deportivo was relegated in years 1963,67,67,70 and 73. During this time, the franchise was known to have one of the world’s best youth systems with players such as Jose Luis Veloso, Severino Reija and Amancio Amaro who were able to join larger clubs, later on in their careers.
After seeing dark times for over a decade following their last relegation, during which time the club had to face forced players sales and massive financial debts, it wasn’t until the 1992-92 season that Deportivo was able to resurge as a force to reckon with. Qualifying for Europe UEFA Cup, finishing in third place at the end of the season and beating Read Madrid by an astounding score of 3-2, the team witnessed a fabulous season. This winning streak has been glued to the team ever since, as it has won the League title in the 2000 season after which it ended up as the runner-up five times in a row. Apart from this, the franchise has also bagged two Spanish Cups and three Spanish Super Cups. This team that flaunts the colors white and blue is considered to be amongst the top franchises in La Liga, making it to the top half of the leader board, sixteen out of their nineteen seasons.
With its long standing rivalries that have been established with clubs such as Celta de Vigo and Malaga CF, supporters now have a chance to watch the face off live from the center of all the action. The La Rosaleda Stadium, a football facility located in Malaga, Andalusia, is inviting you to purchase Deportivo tickets to witness this match.
