Case study

Real Madrid Club de Ftbol (Spanish pronunciation) Royal Madrid Football Club, commonly known as Real Madrid, is a professional football club based in Madrid, Spain. It was founded in 1902 as Madrid Football Club and has traditionally worn a white home kit since. The word Real is Spanish for royal and was bestowed to the club by King Alfonso XIII in 1920 together with the royal crown in the emblem. The club established itself as a major force in both Spanish and European football during the 1950s. Unlike most European football clubs, Real Madrid's members (socios) have owned and operated the club since its inception. The club is the richest football club in terms of annual revenue, generating 479.5million in 2011 and the second most valuable, worth 1.8billion. Real Madrid holds many long-standing rivalries, most notably with FC Barcelona. The team has played its home matches in the 85,454-capacity Santiago Stadium in Madrid since 1947. It is one of three clubs to have never been relegated from the top flight of Spanish football. Domestically, Real Madrid has won a record 32 league titles. Internationally it has won a record nine European Cup/UEFA Champions League titles and a joint record

three Intercontinental Cups, as well as two UEFA Cups, and one UEFA Super Cup.

Swot for real madrid


There is a very renowned club of football in spain.It can be admitted worlds best club in the term of football.The main target group of this club is men in the group 15 and above.Millions of people across the world who love to play or watch football.as a system to earn profit the real Madrid analysis the SWOT as follows.

Strengths

An Exceptional Side Madrid boasts world-class talent in every position. Barring injury, they will probably line up as Casillas in goals; Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo & Arbeloa in defense; Alonso and one of Khedira, Kaka or Essien anchoring midfield; Di Maria and Ronaldo on the flanks, Ozil or Modric behind the strikers; and Higuain or Benzema leading the line. A serious proposition whatever way you look at it.

A Winning Manager Already a two-time competition winner with Porto (2004) and Inter (2010), Mourinho is eager to confirm his standing as the greatest European manager of all-time by guiding Madrid to European glory and winning a record 3rd title with 3 different clubs. He knows what it takes to win the

competition, and he will have learned from just falling short in the past two seasons.

A Club Focused on Europe Despite convincingly winning La Liga last season, Los Blancos seem more focused on finally achieving their dream of a record-breaking 10th European title this year. Having reached the semi-finals in each of the last 2 seasons, Perez & Co. have shown ambition to lift the cup with the big-money summer signing of Modric.

Weaknesses

A Tough Group Draw Madrid have been drawn in the so-called Group of Death, alongside Dutch champions Ajax, German champions Borussia Dortmund and English champions Manchester City. Whilst clearly the most difficult group in the competition, Madrid should have the experience and class needed to qualify (at which stage their price will have shortened considerably).

An Unhappy Ronaldo With 114 goals in 105 games, Renaldos goal record for Madrid is nothing short of remarkable. However, his recent soundings of sadness at Real have cast doubt over the relationship between player and club. And with Ronando simply vital to any hope Madrid have of achieving European success this season, the clubs hierarchy will need to quickly step in and fully resolve whatever concerns he has.

Opportunities

An Appealing Outright Price

At only 10/11 to win their group, the 9/2 available for Madrid to win the competition outright seems appealing. I can only assume that their tough group is reflected in the price, but I suspect Madrid will emerge from the group without too many troubles but with odds a great deal shorter than they are now.

Threats

Barcelona In all of the past 7 seasons, except 1, Barcelona have either won the Champions League (3 times) or been narrowly beaten at the semi-final stage by the eventual winners (3 times). At best price 57/20 with You Win, Barcelona are deserved favorites but it remains to be seen how their new coach, Vilanova, responds to big-pressure European nights.

Other Contenders Given Chelseas win last season, who is to say that another unexpected winner could not emerge? However, despite the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Juventus and others all having hopes in the competition, the Spanish duo of Barcelona and Real Madrid remain the teams to beat.

In short it can be said that*in the view of strength

1. strong global brand name. 2. one of the richest football clubs in the tern of revenue.

3. it has some top level sponsors like adidas,siemens,cocacola.


*in the view of weakness

1. compared to English clubs real Madrid is less popular. 2. real Madrid have some players who has some off-field player behaviour. 3. barcelona is overtaking realmadrid quickly.
*in the view of opportunity

1. real Madrid has some global base to earn profit.such as india,china and USA. 2. more advertising and brand visibility can help real Madrid. 3. real Madrid can help some poor sector such as football design and have the big stadium as an opportunity.
*in the view of threats

1. others clubs are buying out good players. 2. internal problems between players and the management. 3. some players demands huge money value,this occurred financial debts to the club.
