History
• Officially formed on 7 September 1909 as a conglomerate of various teams competing in San Sebastian, the club were granted 'Real' status in 1910 when King Alfonso XIII, who used the city as a summer base, gave them his patronage. The team were founder members of the Spanish Liga when the competition was created in 1928, ending the debut season in fourth with Paco Bienzobas the league's 17-goal top scorer.

• Goal difference alone prevented Real Sociedad winning a first title in 1930/31, but the Basque side entered a period of decline, being demoted four years later and only re-emerging as a force in the top flight in 1949 following several promotion and relegation campaigns.

• Enjoyed a golden period during the late 1970s and early 80s, culminating in back-to-back Spanish championships in 1981 and 1982, the club's only league titles to date. Progressed to the semi-finals of the 1982/83 European Champion Clubs' Cup, knocking out Celtic FC and Sporting Clube de Portugal before meeting their match in eventual champions Hamburger SV, who prevailed 3-2 on aggregate.

• Runners-up in the 1987/88 season behind Real Madrid CF, La Real abandoned their policy of fielding exclusively Basque players in 1989, making Irish international John Aldridge their first non-Pais Vasco signing.

• With Xabi Alonso the inspiration, the Txuri-urdin came second in Spain in 2002/03, yet were relegated four seasons later and spent three years in the second tier. Rejoined the top flight for 2010/11 and gained a UEFA Champions League berth with a fourth-place finish in 2012/13; failed to advance beyond the group stage.
