Real Betis

Real Betis Balompie, S.A.D., commonly referred to as Real Betis (pronounced [reˈal ˈβetis]) or Betis, is a Spanish professional football club based in Seville in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Founded on 12 September 1907, it plays in La Liga, having won the Segunda Division in the 2014–15 season. It holds home games at Estadio Benito Villamarin in the south of the city with 60,720-seat capacity.

Real Betis won the league title in 1935 and the Copa del Rey in 1977 and 2005. Given the club's tumultuous history and many relegations, its motto is ¡Viva el Betis manque (aunque) pierda! ("Long live Betis even when they lose!").

History

The name "Betis" is derived from Baetis, the Roman name for the Guadalquivir river which passes through Seville and which the Roman province there was named after. Real was added in 1914 after the club received patronage from King Alfonso XIII.

Foundation

Betis' city rivals Sevilla FC were the first club in Sevilla, founded in October 1905, while a second club, Sevilla Balompie were established in September 1907.
