The idea of starting a Slovenian Real Madrid fan club came to life in the beginning of March 2011. The founding members, a group of enthusiastic and loyal supporters of “The Greatest Club in The World” got together and on the 24th of March 2011 launched a forum and a website named »Madridismo Slovenia«.
The primary goal was to found the first official Real Madrid fan club in Slovenia, which seemed to be quite a challenge. The entire procedure started with forming a fan association, which we then, after only 11 months of existence and hard work succeeded to realize. On the 14th of February 2012, we have officially become "The Real Madrid Fan Association - Madridismo Slovenia" with the entry in the register of associations. This has brought us a step closer to our primary goal.
Up till this day, we have been active both “offline” and “online”, by gathering loyal Slovenian Madridistas under “one roof”. With publishing and posting news, we have been informing our members, wider public and our followers on our website, official Facebook page, Twitter account and YouTube channel. Exciting news, with lots of points of attraction, historical and statistical meaning have become a standard before, during and after the matches of our favorite football players and beloved club.
While busy with all the different activities, one of the main goals was still “hanging in the air” and was yet to be fulfilled. Nevertheless, it came relatively soon after becoming an official fan association. On the 6th of March 2012, which also happened to be Real Madrid’s 110th anniversary, all of the hard work paid off. Early in the morning, a letter from Madrid arrived at our address in Ljubljana. Enclosed was a certificate confirming that we had become an officially recognized fan club of Real Madrid, which is now called Peña “Madridismo Eslovenia”. On “The Clubs” anniversary, we have become the first and only official fan club of Real Madrid CF in Slovenia and have put all Slovenian Madridistas on the world map of Real Madrid’s fans.
This was a great and a promising start of a fruitful and exciting association, which now has even greater ambitions and ideas. Meetings, gatherings, picnics, friendly matches against other fan clubs in Slovenia and organized events for all Slovenian Madridistas are just a few of the benefits that our members can experience. However, to keep it short and to the point, we will now let the future and the results of our work to speak for themselves and our young, but steadily growing Peña. See you in Madrid!
