What is the pronunciation of Real Madrid? Maybe most of the fans would probably make a mistake

The pronounciation of Real Madrid must read the word “real” as how native Spanish speakers pronunce it.For the reason that the meaning of  “real” in Spanish has a close ralation to the Spanish word “rey”,which has the same meaning as the English word “royal”.

What is the pronunciation of Real Madrid? Maybe most of the fans would probably make a mistake

As one of the most famous teams in La Liga history,Real Madrid,who was founded on 1902 has gone through a history of 119 years.However, when they were first formed their name was not yet Real Madrid, but was known as the Madrid football team. So who changed the name of the team to what is now known as Real Madrid? It was Alfonso XIII, the famous king of Spain, who decided to add the word “Real” (meaning “Royal”in Spanish) to the original name of the club on 29 June 1920, with a crown on the crest, in order to promote football in the Spanish capital, Madrid. The club was then renamed Real Madrid Football Club.Therefore, if someone who has the opportunity to visit Stadio Bernabeu,which is the home stadium of Real Madrid,you can’t pronounce the word “real” by using how you regularly read it in English.Otherwise,native Spanish may consider the way you pronounce the name of Real Madrid as a interesting joke.

Desptie this,Real Madrid have still won the UEFA Champions League for 13 times in their history and achieved an unprecedented treble between the 2015/16 and 2017/2018 seasons. The team’s century-long history has been marked by the emergence of such famous figures in the world of football as the Brazilian star Cristiano Ronaldo, the Spanish star Raúl, the talented French midfielder and later the club’s decorated coach Zinedine Zidane. But to conclude this article, I would like to remind all Real Madrid fans to learn how to say the name of the club correctly in plain Spanish when they get the chance. If you do, you will not be far away from successfully saying the famous and very loudly solgan “Hala Madrid” in Real Madrid fan circles.
