Real Betis History
Betis were founded as España Balompié in September 1907. “Balompié” translates literally to “football” in the original Spanish, which predates the use of the now more common term “fútbol”.
One year later, the club became known as “Sevilla Balompié”, and in 1914, merged with Betis Football Club. That same year, the patronage of King Alfonso XIII resulted in the current name of Real Betis Balompié being adopted. “Betis” comes from the Roman name Baetis, the river that travels through Seville and name of the Roman province.
Originally a blue club, the origins of the now-familiar green and white colors of Betis have an interesting story. The tale goes that club co-founder and captain Manuel Ramos made some connections while studying in Scotland. Supposedly, he contacted Celtic, and obtained some of their green and white fabric to make kits for Betis. Green and white also happened to be the colors of the flag of Andalusia (where Seville is located). He turned Celtic’s horizontal hoops 90°, and Betis’ green and white stripes were born.
The only top tier title for Betis to date is their 1935 La Liga triumph.
A decade of decline followed, leading to a stint in the third tier. But despite the lower standing, fan support remained strong, even at away matches.
With titles in La Liga (1), the Segunda (7) and Tercera (1) Divisións, Betis hold the unique distinction as the only Spanish club to have won the league title in each of the top three tiers.
Especially in recent decades, the club bounces in and out of European competition. The highest overall level they’ve reached is the group stage of the 2006 Champions League. But they’ve also made the UEFA Cup/Europa League round of 16 and the quarterfinals of the Cup Winners’ Cup on multiple occasions.
The 60,000-seat Estadio Benito Villamarín is the biggest stadium in the city of Seville. Open in 1929, it hosted Brazil’s wins over Scotland and New Zealand in the 1982 FIFA World Cup. It is located only about 2 miles away from rival Sevilla’s Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.
As of 2020, notable Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini has led the club from the sidelines.
