Florentino Perez will remain as Real Madrid president after the period for candidates to step forward closed on Sunday with no opposition presenting themselves.
The club announced an election on June 8, with 10 days the time frame for people to confirm their candidacy. But 10 days passed without anyone stepping forward, meaning Perez will serve a fifth term as the club’s president.
Perez began his second period with the club in 2009 having previously presided over the ‘Galactico Period’ between 2000 and 2006.
In total, Perez has spent 15 years as the club’s chief split across two periods: 2000-2006 and 2009-2017. He will serve another four-year term, taking him up to 2021.
Under his mandate, Madrid have won three Champions Leagues in the last four seasons (2014, 2016 and 2017). Los Blancos have won Europe’s top prize 12 times, more than any other side.
