Real Sociedad - San Sebastian football team

Real Sociedad de San Sebastián


It is without doubt one of the most popular sports in San Sebastian, and the people here support unconditionally their team: Real Sociedad de Futbol. There were already football matches in the city at the beginning of the 20th century and there is evidence of a proper team from 1903. The Anoeta Football Stadium, as it is today, was opened in 1993 and it has capacity for up to 32 000 spectators.

The Real Sociedad de Futbol has been a First Division team in 65 seasons and during that time it has won the League twice (1980-81 and 1981-82). It also won the Copa del Rey (1986-87) and a Super Copa (1982-83). Although it is a modest team, their quality is noticeable and we must admit that most of their past and present success is due to the hard work with the local young players.
