Real Madrid plan to have a women’s football team next season

22 Jun 2019

LaLiga Iberdrola could have a new entrant for next season with Real Madrid planning to have a women’s team for the 2019/20 campaign.

The club have agreed a deal to buy and absorb CD Tacón, who won promotion to the Primera Division for the first time in their short history this summer, having only entered the league system at the start of the 2016/17 season.

Real Madrid will pay less than €500,000 to acquire the team, with the deal due to be completed at the beginning of next week.

The news comes in the same week that Spanish FA general secretary Andreu Camps revealed that more than €20m will be invested in women’s football next season, with every top flight match being either shown on TV or streamed live online – with at least three second division matches being aired too.

Real Madrid have been evaluating the idea of a women’s team for a number of years now and had planned on starting from scratch, but Tacon‘s rise and the good relationship between the clubs has proven too good an opportunity to turn down.
