Traditionally, team colours are white socks with royal blue shorts. A government survey in 2007 found that 2.7% of the Spanish population support Real Zaragoza, making them the seventh-most supported in the country. The club's main rivals are: their opponents in the Aragonese derby. Real Zaragoza was formed from two rival teams: Iberia SC and Real Zaragoza CD. In 1939, after three years without football due to the Spanish Civil War, the team made its first appearance in La Liga, ending in 7th position out of 12 teams, but being relegated in 1941; the club returned to the top division one year only to be relegated back.
It remained in Segunda División until the end of the 1950–51 campaign, when it achieved promotion by finishing second in a play-off league. On 8 September 1957, the team left its original stadium, El Torrero, for its current stadium, La Romareda. Beginning in the 1960–61 season, Zaragoza enjoyed a period of great success, showcasing some of the greatest players playing in Spain during that decade, which earned for themselves the designation of Los Magníficos. While the team failed to capture the league title, it finished in the top five every year until 1968–69, with two third-place finishes, won its first two Copa del Rey titles and the 1963–64 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. Zaragoza's famous attacking line included Canário, Carlos Lapetra, Eleuterio Santos and Juan Manuel Villa; the Peruvian Juan Seminario, who started his career in Spain with Los Maños before moving to Barcelona, won the Pichichi Trophy in the 1961–62 campaign, scoring 25 goals in 30 matches as Zaragoza finished in fourth position.
Zaragoza finished third in 1973–74 and a best-ever second in the following season, losing the title in the last round to Real Madrid. The club was defeated 0–1 in the 1976 domestic cup final against Atlético Madrid, spending two seasons in the second level during the decade, with promotion at the first attempt on either occasion. In 1986, Zaragoza won its third Copa del Rey, defeating Barcelona 1–0; the club finished the 1990–91 season in 17th position, thus having to appear in the promotion/relegation play-offs against Real Murcia. Víctor Fernández was appointed manager in 1991. On 10 May 1995, one year after winning the Copa del Rey against Celta de Vigo, Zaragoza conquered the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup against Arsenal at the Parc des Princes, after having disposed of the likes of Feyenoord and Chelsea en route. With the score level at 1–1, the two teams entered extra time and, in the 120th minute, Nayim hit a half-volley from just past the halfway line, putting it beyond the reach of goalkeeper David Seaman for the final 2–1.
The club contested the 1995 UEFA Super Cup against Ajax, losing 1–5 on aggregate despite a home draw in the first leg. Víctor Fernández was dismissed from his post in early November 1996, after only winning one league match that season; the 2000s brought a further two Copa del Rey titles to Zaragoza's trophy cabinet, including the 2003–04 edition against Real Madrid in Barcelona. However, the club suffered top flight relegation in 2002 after narrowly avoiding so the previous season, but achieved immediate promotion in 2003. In late May 2006, Agapito Iglesias purchased Alfonso Solans' shares and took control of the club, promising to build one of the strongest teams in Spain and Europe. In his first year in charge, he purchased Pablo Aimar from Valencia for €11 million, former manager Víctor Fernández returned to the club. Due to Diego Milito's 23 goals in 2006–07, Real Zaragoza finished in sixth position, thus qualifying to the UEFA Cup. However, the following season ended in relegation – for the second time in the decade – with the side being eliminated in the first round in European competition.
Legendary club coach Víctor Fernández returned for a second spell, although he was sacked in January 2008, as the club had four managers during the campaign. On the last matchday, a brace from Ricardo Oliveira proved insufficient in a 2–3 away loss against Mallorca, with the team totalling 42 points to Osasuna's 43. Zaragoza achieved promotion from the second division at the first attempt. On the last matchday, on 20 June 2009, the team drew 2–2 at Rayo Vallecano with goals from youth graduate David Generelo and ex-Real Madrid defender Francisco Pavón, only trailing champions Xerez in the table; that season Zaragoza was the best team at home, gained 50 from their 81 points in home games. However, after four seasons spent in the bottom half of the table, Zaragoza was relegated following the 2012–13 Liga season after finishing last. 58 seasons in La Liga 23 seasons in Segunda División 4 seasons in Tercera División As of 14 February 2020Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.

Vojtěch or Vojtech is a Czech and Slovak given name of Slavic origin. It is composed of two parts: voj – "troops"/"war" and těch – "consolator"/"rejoicing man". So, the name could be interpreted either as "consolator of troops" or "man rejoicing in a battle, warlike man"; the name day is 23 April. The name Vojtěch is since the Early Middle Ages perceived as the equivalent of Germanic name Adalbert, due to the saint Adalbert of Prague, the two names have no linguistic relationship with each other. Via the same artificial process have been the names Vojtěch/Adalbert assigned to Hungarian name Béla; the proper Czech spelling of the name is pronounced. The name contains two Czech orthography elements; the first is the caron, a form of a diacritical mark, over the letter'e'. The caron modifies the pronunciation of the letter't' preceding the ě; the second is a digraph at the end of the name: the last two letters'ch' in fact form a single phoneme. A common shorter version of the name is Vojta, pronounced.
According to a 2009 survey of the Czech Ministry of Interior, there were over 41 thousand men with the first name Vojtěch in the Czech Republic, which made it the 28th most used name on Czech territory. The name is spelled without the caron above the letter e. Polish: Wojciech, Wojtasek, Wojtek, Wojcik, Wojt, Wojtuś.
