Sheffield FC & Real Madrid CFThe Tree of Merit


In Paris 2004, FIFA acknowledged the contributions to the world's most popular game of Real Madrid C.F. and Sheffield F.C. The two football clubs were bestowed with the prestigious Order of Merit 'Centenary Award'. 

The ‘Tree of Merit’ celebrates the direct lineage between these two highly-contrasting, but inextricably linked clubs, within the ancestry of the game. Sheffield FC (Est. 1857), the first and oldest club in the world, and Real Madrid CF (Est. 1904), the greatest club of the 20th century.

‘Sheffield FC is a symbol of the role of football as a common denominator in the community and society.’
