It happened on August 28, 1920. On that historic date 11 players wore the Spanish shirt for the first time. With Zamora as the goalkeeper and Arrate and Acedo in the lineup, the team went to the seventh Olympic Games and the match was played in the stadium of La Butte, Brussels.
This anecdote is just one of the brilliant and unforgettable stories that you will find in the Museum of Spanish football, which opened in December 2010 at the Soccer City of Las Rozas, la Ciudad del Fútbol.
The Museum of the Red Team, the Spanish national team, can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 7 pm and the ticket price is 12 Euros for adults and 8 Euros for children.
Among the most valuable pieces on display in the museum’s collection is the Gioconda of Football, the football that was used in the first World Cup final, that of Uruguay 1930.
Obviously, it is the Euro 2008 Cup and the World Cup 2011 in South Africa, the last trophy won by the national team, the trophies that attract all the flashes and almost all camera lenses.
