It’s finally official — CD Tacón has become Real Madrid Femenino after an awkward transitory phase, where Real Madrid bought Tacón but the women’s club still retained its old name and branding:
Real Madrid C. F. wishes to announce that it has sent the corresponding documentation to the Spanish Football Federation in order to make effective the merger by absorption of Club Deportivo Tacón, a women’s football club, as approved by the Extraordinary General Assembly of Committed Members held on 15 September 2019.
The Royal Spanish Football Federation has informed us that said documentation is correct, so the merger will be effective when the current 2019-20 football season is definitively concluded.
Real Madrid will play the women’s football competitions from the 2020/21 season, with Real Madrid City as the venue for the team’s matches and training sessions.
Our women’s football section will be made up of the senior and under-16s to under-19s teams. A youth structure that will allow us to remain faithful to our philosophy of identifying, training and developing young talent. Our teams will also play their respective competitions from the 2020/21 season.
Real Madrid are looking forward to this new challenge with a commitment to promoting women’s football and contributing to its development and growth in our society.
Along with the announcement, Real Madrid crowned this moment with a fun little video:

This is a welcome new beginning for all those associated with Madrid, but it was bittersweet for some of the players, who said emotional goodbyes to their old club:

It took way too long to get here, but we’re here and it couldn’t be more exciting.
