The Aviation Athletic Club

The Aviation Athletic Club or Athletic-Aviation Club it was formed during the Civil War in 1939 as a result of the merger ofthe Athletic Club of Madrid with the National Team in order to be able to play in the National League. 

The Rojiblanco club has its origin in 1903 as Athletic Club de Madrid, founded as a branch of Athletic Club de Bilbao by a group of supporters who belonged to the School of Mining Engineers.

For its part, in 1937, at the Matacán airfield (Salamanca), the National Aviation was created, made up of soldiers from the Franco side who had been professional footballers. Two years later, the National Team plays its first match in Madrid at the Vallecas field.

The merger between the two teams took place in October 1939, with Ricardo Zamora as the first coach, giving rise to Athletic-Aviación Club. In January 1947 the club adopted its current name, Club Atlético de Madrid.
