History
• Sevilla Balompié were established in 1907 by students in the southern Spanish city. Graduated to become Betis Balompié and later, following a 1914 merger with another local team and subsequent royal patronage from King Alfonso XIII, Real Betis Balompié.

• Reached their first Copa del Rey final in 1931, losing 3-1 to Athletic Club, and became the first Andalusian club to play in the Liga in 1932. Won their maiden – and so far only – national title three years later, edging Real Madrid CF by a point.

• Suffered relegation two years later and spent just one of the next 18 seasons in the top division, eventually returning to the elite tier in 1958/59.

• Lifted a first Copa del Rey in 1977, beating Athletic on penalties to enter European competition for the first time. A run to the European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-finals followed, which included a 3-2 aggregate success over AC Milan in the first round.

• The Verdiblancos's third place in 1994/95 was their best finish since a similar placing in 1963/64. Paid a world-record transfer fee for Brazil winger Denílson in 1998, yet the move failed to inspire the Seville side to glory and they were relegated again in 1999/2000.

• The 2004/05 Copa del Rey represents the club's last piece of silverware, though their first foray into the UEFA Champions League occurred the following season. Betis could not advance from a group including Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC.
