This club based in the province of
Castellón was founded in 1923 and for the majority of its existence, it played
in the lower divisions until first entering La Liga in 1998. The team’s
nickname is El Submarino Amarillo, or
‘Yellow Submarine’ because of the squad’s kit color. Villareal plays its home
games at El Madrigal stadium which holds a capacity of 24,890. The squad
has always been considered as one of the underdogs in La Liga, especially when
the team plays powerhouses like Real Madrid and Barça, however it can hold its
own, especially when it comes to playing local rivals Castellón and Valencia.
