Getafe FC is one of the most characterful teams in Spanish football, finally attaining a solid foothold in La Liga in the 2000s. Their constant fight for survival has produced highly entertaining do-or-die football, so while they may not have the glamour of some other teams, it’s worth buying Getafe FC tickets on StubHub to watch these plucky underdogs. All tickets are 100% guaranteed and we can deliver them to your smartphone instantly. You can sell tickets through us too, even if you bought them elsewhere.
Getafe FC joins the big league teams
Known as Azulones, the Deep Blue Ones, on account of their strip, the club was founded in 1946 but folded a while later, until it was revived in earnest in 1986. They spent all of their time in the lower leagues for the first 20 years, propping up League 2B for many years and even spending time in the fourth-tier of Spanish football, Tercera Division. This all changed in 2003, when they gained promotion to the top Spanish league. They achieved this by beating Tenerife, travelling to the Canary Islands to do so. Their home ground is the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez, in Getafe, within the Community of Madrid. As expected, once the team entered La Liga, a friendly local rivalry developed with Atletico Madrid FC. Their main rival, however, goes back a lot further. Almost since their inception, the derbies against neighbouring club CD Leganes have been the most emotionally charged games.

The club’s first season in La Liga started ominously, with much of it spent in the relegation dangerzone. However, Getafe showed their character by then defeating Athletic Bilbao, Espanyol, Valencia and Real Madrid on the trot, finishing 13th. In their next season, they briefly topped the log, ultimately finishing 9th. Though not spectacular, this all helped to cement the club’s place in top-flight Spanish football for years to come. They also almost won the coveted Copa Del Rey in 2007, the first time they’d gotten remotely near the final stages. They even managed to dispose of Barcelona FC, albeit on goal aggregate. Unfortunately, they were beaten in the final by Sevilla FC.
