Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez has been re-elected to oversee the affairs of the club for the sixth term.
The 74-year-old won the election unopposed and will be president for another four years until at least 2025.
In an official statement, Real Madrid confirmed Perez’s re-election alongside the Board of Directors at a ceremony at Real Madrid City.
Since taking the top role at Santiago Bernabeu back in July of 2000, Los Blancos have won 26 domestic, continental and global crowns.
Perez has overseen five UEFA Champions League, five La Liga, five FIFA Club World Cup, four UEFA Super Cup, two Copa del Rey and five Spanish Supercopa titles.
The club constitution changed in 2012, demanding that challengers for the role have to meet certain criteria that includes 20 years of club membership and 15% of the club’s budget with the support of Spanish banks.
The only interruption to Perez’s time in charge of Los Merengues was Ramon Calderon’s three-year stint between 2006-09 when the only titles won were one La Liga and Spanish Supercopa each.
It is important to note that Perez’s first role as president ran from 2000 through to 2006 and his new term will run through to 2025, meaning that he will have been in charge of the club for 22 of the first 22 years this century.
