Presidents

Since its founding in 1902, Real Madrid has had 18 different presidents. The club is owned by the club-members of Real Madrid C.F., and similarly to a limited liability company, they elect the president by a ballot. The president has the responsibility for the overall management of the club, including formally signing contracts with players and staff. In Spain, it is customary for the president to watch the games in which the first-team participates, together with the president from the opposing team.
