After Ronaldo’s announcement, made in April, Valladolid carried out this Monday, the institution’s 94th anniversary, the change of its shield. The club, which has Phenomenon as its owner, has used the same emblem since 1998.
At launch, the club defines the change as an evolution, “a reflection of a new era for the club”. An in-depth research was carried out to study the past in depth and thus be able to project the identity of Real Valladolid into the future.
Team members, historians and supporters were heard to understand their views on the club’s past and future. “Respecting the essence and promoting the future” was the premise that guided the change. The new crest is inspired by that of 1928 and reinforces the club’s key elements: colors (white and violet), flames and crown.
