Alcorcon, the plucky understudies of Madrid football
Alcorcon is a Spanish professional football team that has been a mainstay of the country's highly competitive second league Segunda Division for many years. Throughout their history, they've provided their fans with some thrilling football, slaying a few European giants and giving them every reason to be intensely proud of their beloved canary yellow colours. Get involved in a hotly contested league and discover one of the most exciting second tier teams on the Continent when you buy or sell Alcorcon tickets on StubHub.
Slaying the giants of Madrid football
Alcorcon has played in four different Spanish leagues since its inception, beginning in the Categorias Regionalies, and working their way up through Tercera Division and the Segunda B Division, before arriving at the Segunda Division. They've played plenty of promotional play-offs but have never quite made it to the uppermost echelons of Spanish football, although they have a fiery, never-say-die underdog spirit that has made them extremely dangerous opponents at times. Just ask Real Madrid FC, who were unceremoniously bundled out in the first round of the Copa del Rey in 2009. This sent shock waves throughout the capital, and gave residents of the community bragging rights over their neighbours pretty much forever – no matter what else happens, nothing can ever change this little bit of footballing magic for the club. This is the kind of plucky attitude that you'll always find on display when you get Alcorcon tickets.
Moving up in the cup quarter-finals
Alcorcon went on to even further success in the Copa del Rey in ensuing years. In 2017, they made their passage all the way to the quarter-finals thanks to another thriller, this time against Barcelona's Espanyol FC. The game went to extra time, by which point things still weren't settled, and the eventual penalty shoot-out went the way of the Madrid team. They couldn't repeat this success against their opponents in the semi-finals, however, and found themselves edged out by Alavés over two legs. This is a team that's always on the move in one way or another, and they hold themselves admirably on the field for a club with far fewer resources than the mammoths of Spanish football with which they share a city. So one thing's for sure, no matter what's at stake, you'll get hugely committed football when you're in possession of Alcorcon tickets, which you can find on StubHub throughout the Spanish football season.
