Real Club Deportivo Mallorca is a Spanish football soccer team located in the city of Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands. Founded on March 5th 1916, it currently plays in the Spanish first division. The oldest club in the Balearic Islands, Mallorca was originally formed by Adolfo Vázquez, a republican engineer, who named the club Junta Directiva del Alfonso XIII FBC after the then king. The first stadium, inaugurated on 25 March, was called the Buenos Aires, with a match against Barcelona. A year later, the club changed its name to Real Sociedad Alfonso XIII , which remained until the club was renamed in 1931, for political reasons, Club Deportivo Mallorca. In 1949 they were granted royal patronage, allowing them to use the Real prefix.
In 2003, Mallorca won the Copa del Rey for the first time. In its history, the team spent 20 seasons in Primera División and 29 in Segunda División.
