Real Madrid took centre stage at the LaLiga Kick off Gala that was held at the Eslava Theatre in Madrid. Pedro López Jiménez, Real Madrid's vice-president, represented our club at this event where the LaLiga champion's insignia was presented. During next season, Real Madrid will wear this golden badge on their shirts in domestic matches. Ancelotti's men will display it for the first time when they visit Almería on Sunday 14 August (10 pm).
At the gala, Pedro López Jimenez praised the professionalism of the entire squad, which was instrumental in achieving last season's success. Real Madrid enjoyed a spectacular campaign that saw them win three trophies: the club's 14th European Cup, the 35th LaLiga title and the 12th Spanish Super Cup. The Whites further enhanced their supremacy in Spain's and Europe's top competitions. Additionally, Benzema was outstanding in attack, producing the best season of his career (44 goals) and finishing as the top scorer in the Champions League and LaLiga.
The league title was clinched in scintillating fashion, with four matchdays to spare. Real Madrid dominated the 2021-22 championship and on only one matchday, the second, did they not top the table. Huge wins were secured at the Camp Nou, the Reale Arena, the Sánchez Pizjuán and the derby against Atlético at the Bernabéu. Last season also saw the return of football to our stadium, the scene of the LaLiga and Champions League celebrations. Benzema was the most influential player in the competition and won the Pichichi Trophy with 27 goals. Also, Ancelotti became the first coach to win the five major European leagues (Spain, Italy, Germany, England and France).
