Real Valladolid Club de Futbol, S.A.D., or simply Real Valladolid (pronounced [reˈal βaʎaðoˈlið]) or Valladolid, is a Spanish professional football club based in Valladolid (Castile and Leon) from where the nickname Pucela – also the nickname of the city – is derived. The club colours are violet and white, used on the kit in stripes from its foundation on 20 June 1928. The team plays in La Liga, holding home games at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla, which seats 27,846 spectators.
Valladolid's honours include a single trophy of great relevance, the defunct Copa de la Liga 1983–84. It has been runner-up in the Copa del Rey on two occasions (1949–50 and 1988–89), and has participated in two editions of the UEFA Cup (1984–85 and 1997–98) and also one edition of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (1989–90). The team subsidiary, the Real Valladolid B, currently play in the Segunda Division B.
Since its La Liga debut in the 1948–49 season (in which it became the first club from the region to play in La Liga – five others have since done so), Valladolid is the most successful football club in Castile and Leon by honours and history, with a total of 44 seasons in the First Division, 35 in the Second and 10 in the Third.
