Club de Fútbol Rayo Majadahonda (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈraʝo maxaðaˈonda]) is a Spanish football team based in Majadahonda, in the autonomous community of Madrid. Founded in 1976 it plays in Segunda División, holding home games at Estadio Cerro del Espino, with a capacity of 3,376 seats.

History[edit]

Rayo Majadahonda was founded in 1976, being immediately registered in the Madrid Football Federation. It played in the regional divisions until 1987 when it achieved promotion to Tercera División.

The club established themselves in the fourth division until the 1996–97 campaign, when it achieved a first-ever promotion to Segunda División B. Two consecutive relegations followed, but the club immediately regained their national status in 2000. Then, it subsequently remained in the fourth level until 2015 (only split by a one-season spell in the third division), when it achieved promotion with club legend Antonio Iriondo as manager.

On 27 May 2018, Rayo Majadahonda promoted for the first time ever to Segunda División by beating FC Cartagena with a last-minute own goal from Míchel Zabaco, with Iriondo still in charge of the first team.[1]
