Real Madrid Aficionados[edit]

Real Madrid Aficionados was the amateur team for Real Madrid. In the 1960s, the team won six straight Campeonato de España de Aficionados and winning eight championships in an 11-year period. They last of their amateur championships, qualified the team for the 1970–71 Copa del Generalísimo which was the Spanish Cup competition. The team lost in the second round which was further than their big brothers at Plus Ultra achieved; losing in the first round. The last Spanish Cup appearance was in the 1986-87 edition of the Copa del Rey. While Castilla lost in the first round, the amateur lasted until the fifth round.

In league play, the Aficionados won promotion from the Preferente Castellana to the Tercera División in 1981. Their best year was the 1984–85 season, winning their Tercera group but renouncing their play-off spot in the Promoción de Ascenso.

Real Madrid C[edit]

After RFEF rulings about the status of reserve teams, the amateur team was renamed Real Madrid C in 1990. In 1990–91, the team again won their group, but was runner-up in the Liguilla de Ascenso (promotion mini-league). Two years later, the team won promotion to the Segunda División B. In 1997, the team was relegated back to the Tercera when Real Madrid B were demoted from the Segunda División to the Segunda División B. In 2005–06, the team missed promotion to the Segunda B by a single goal; Guijuelo won their home leg 1–0 and lost away 2–1 for 2–2 on aggregate, and the tie was broken by the away goals rule.

Real Madrid C gained promotion in 2012, and maintained a mid-table position in the third tier for two years before being forcibly demoted in 2014 when Castilla were relegated to the third level. After the 2014–15 Tercera Division season, the C-team was disbanded.[1][2]
