Rayo Vallecano Stats & History

Rayo Vallecano de Madrid was founded in 1924 and didn’t reach the third division of Spanish soccer until 1949. Their red and white striped kit comes from the fact that Rayo had an agreement with Atletico Madrid to be Atleti’s feeder club. Despite the agreement only lasting one season, the kit never changed.

An important moment in the Rayo Vallecano stats was earning promotion to the second division in 1956. The 1976-77 season was another historic one for Rayo Vallecano. They went undefeated at home in the second division and earned promotion to La Liga for the first time ever.

Their debut season in the first division ended with a surprise tenth place finish, against the La Liga odds. In 1982, Rayo Vallecano achieved their best-ever result in the Copa Del Rey, with a semifinals appearance. However, Rayo frequently bounced around between La Liga and the Segunda Division in the 80s and 90s.
