Description:
Real Madrid Castilla is a Spanish football team that plays in the Segunda División B. It is the reserve team of Real Madrid. They play their home games at Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium.

Unlike the English football league system, reserve teams in Spain play in the same league system as their senior team rather than a separate league. However, reserve teams cannot play in the same division as their senior team. Therefore Real Madrid Castilla are ineligible for promotion to the Primera Division. Reserve teams are also no longer permitted to enter the Copa del Rey. In the past the reserve teams of both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have blurred the lines between being a reserve team and a separate entity. In addition only under-23 players, or under-25 players with a professional contract can switch between senior and reserve teams.
