History
• On 5 March 1919 a group of footballers gathered in a bar on Calle Barcelona with the aim of creating a football team to replace the long defunct Club Valencia. Valencia CF was born, initially calling a field in Algiros home.

• Regional success brought admission into the Copa del Rey in 1923, the year Valencia moved to Mestalla, and by the end of the 1920s Los Blanquinegros had won promotion to Spain's second tier. By 1931 they were in the Liga, and though Real Madrid CF proved too strong in the 1934 Copa del Rey final, Valencia did not have to wait long for their time.

• Under charismatic club president Luis Casanova, the 1940s was a golden era for Valencia. Spearheaded by Epifanio 'Epi' Fernández and Edmundo Suárez, they returned to Mestalla – largely reconstructed following damage during the Spanish Civil War – with three Liga titles (1942, 1944, 1947) and two Spanish Cups (1941, 1949).

• The gold run dried up, but Alfredo Di Stéfano's entrance in 1970 changed that as he guided Los Blanquinegros to a last-day Liga triumph in his first season. The arrival of another Argentina-born star, Mario Kempes, at the end of the decade brought more success as El Matador scored the winning goal in the 1979 Copa del Rey final. Twelve months later Kempes missed a penalty in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup showpiece though Valencia nevertheless prevailed against Arsenal FC. Yet by 1986 they were enduring their first season outside the top flight in 56 years.

• Following the 1999 Copa del Rey triumph, the new millennium brought fresh success. Rafael Benítez guided the side to two Liga successes (2002 and 2004) and, having lost successive UEFA Champions League finals (in 2000 to Real Madrid CF and in 2001 to FC Bayern München), a 2-0 victory against Olympique de Marseille secured the 2004 UEFA Cup. Valencia added their seventh Copa del Rey in 2008.
