Atletico Madrid is one of the most successful franchises in Spanish League history, winning both La Liga and the Copa del Rey on nine occasions, including a double in 1996. They play in the American-inspired red and white striped shirts and blue shorts.
The Club was originally founded on 26 April 1903 as Athletic Club de Madrid by three Basque students living in Madrid. The founders thought of the new club as a branch of Athletic Bilbao.
In 1904 the franchise was joined by dissident members of Madrid FC and began playing in blue and white. Since 1911, the players are playing in their current colours. In 1921 Athletic Madrid became independent of Athletic Bilbao.
Atletico Madrid built its first stadium named the Metropolitano in 1923. During the 1920s, Athletic won the Campeonato del Centro three times and were Copa del Rey runners-up in 1921 and 1926.
Based on this record, the franchise was invited to join the Primera Division of the inaugural La Liga in 1928. During their debut La Liga season, Fred Pentland was their manager. However in 1930 they were relegated to Segunda Division but briefly returned to the Primera Division four years later.
By 1939, when La Liga had resumed, Atletico had merged with Aviacion Nacional of Zaragoza and became Atletico Aviacion de Madrid.
Aviacion Nacional was founded by members of the Spanish Air Force who had been promised a place in the Primera Division for the 1939-40 season.
After some time, this club merged with Athletic, whose team had lost eight players in the Spanish Civil War. With Ricardo Zamora as manager, Atletico Madrid subsequently won their first La Liga in 1940 and retained the title in 1941.

Having banned to use foreign names, the club became Atl?tico Aviacion de Madrid. In 1947 the club decided to drop the military association from its name and bagan using its resent name Club Atl?tico de Madrid.
