‘On 13 April 2021, in Madrid, at 00:01 hours, at the headquarters of the Real Madrid Club de Futbol Electoral Board, the individuals listed at the beginning meet to discuss and decide on the matters listed below,’ a Real Madrid statement read.
‘Given the existing health situation resulting from Covid-19, the president, Mr. Jose Manuel de Carlos Grau, has decided that the members of the Electoral Board who so wish may participate telematically.
‘Having presented no more than one candidacy declared by this Electoral Board and by virtue of article 40, section E, point 2 of the current by-laws of the club, Mr. Florentino Perez Rodriguez is declared president of Real Madrid.’
Madrid have won five LaLiga titles and as many Champions League crowns during his reign
Perez’s post at the club prior to his current 12-year reign also came in the boardroom between 2000 and 2006.
Any candidate wanting to run for president must have been a club member for at least 20 years and have acquired the personal wealth required to obtain a bank guarantee worth at least 15 per cent of the club’s budget.
But with nobody coming forward to challenge him, this is the third successive occasion on which Perez has been re-elected as Madrid’s president, having previously retained control in 2013 and 2017.
The club have won five Champions League titles and as many LaLiga crowns under Perez, in a total haul of 26 trophies under the current incumbent.
