NEWS | 03/11/2018Florentino Pérez presided over the event that recognised the members who have shown their loyalty to the club for a consecutive period of 25, 50 and 60 years.
Emilio Butragueño, the club's director of institutional relations, presented the event, looked to the past in his address: "If we go back 60 years, in 1958, our football team lifted our third European Cup in a row thanks to a goal from our honorary president, Gento, the sixth LaLiga title and the basketball team won the second straight League title with a great side coached by Ferrándiz”.
"Fifty years ago, in 1968, we secured our fourth European Cup in basketball and the LaLiga crown in football, with Amancio our top goalscorer. In 1993, 25 years ago, madridismo mourned the passing of Petrovic and our football team captured the 17th Copa del Rey title after seeing off Zaragoza, whilst the basketabll team clinched the League. We're proud to share the feeling of being a madridista and without you, this wouldn't be possible. That's why we want to thank you for your loyalty towards Real Madrid”.
The poignant event saw two individuals receive special mentions. Florentino Pérez along with Gento, presented a gold pin to the club's vice-president Eduardo Fernández de Blas and his father, Eduardo Fernández García, and a silver pin to Amancio Amaro.
