Villarreal Club de Fútbol was founded on 10 March 1923 and in 1998 joined Spain's top division - La Liga. Villarreal's best La Liga finish came in 2008 when they finished second to Real Madrid. The team also reached the 2006 Champions League semi-finals where they lost to English side Arsenal. After the 2012 season, Villarreal CF were relegated to the Segunda División, however, they were promoted after just one season and ever since have been competing in the top division.
The Villarreal CF home stadium is the Estadio de la Ceramica, which was formally known as El Madrigal. The stadium name changed just before a match against Barcelona in January 2017 in recognition of the importance of the ceramics industry to Villarreal. The stadium has a capacity of 24,890 which, astonishingly, is half the population of the city of Villarreal itself! Interestingly, the stadium had to undergo a series of modifications in 2005 when Villarreal CF qualified for the Champions League so as to comply with the regulations needed for Europe's top footballing competition.
