Mallorca plays in red shirts and black shorts with black socks. Their home stadium is the ONO Estadi, seating 23,142 spectators.
The oldest club in the Balearic Islands, Mallorca was originally formed by Adolfo Vázquez, a republican engineer, who named the club Junta Directiva del Alfonso XIII FBC after the then king. The first stadium, inaugurated on 25 March, was called the Buenos Aires, with a match against Barcelona (which Barcelona won 8-0). A year later, the club changed its name to Real Sociedad Alfonso XIII, which remained until the club was renamed in 1931, for political reasons, Club Deportivo Mallorca. The Real prefix was added in 1949.
In its history, the team has spent 20 seasons in Primera División, 29 in Segunda División, 2 in Segunda División B and 11 in Tercera División.
It was announced on 22 July 2008, that 96% of the club's shares had been purchased for over GBP50 million by controversial English businessman Paul Davidson.
