Aberdeen F.C., known as 'The Dons', was founded in 1903 from the amalgamation of three local clubs. The club's first season in 1904-05 and they have only ever spent one season outside of the top flight of Scottish Football. After formation they won election to the First Division where they have remained ever since, giving them the distinction of never having been relegated from any division at any time in the club's history. It was sometime, however, before they achieved any real success in the First Division; although they did finish as runners-up in 1910-11 and 1935-56. In 1955, the Dons won their first League championship. Since this period, the Dons have achieved a great deal more than in the early years, particularly since the late 1970s. By the end of 2007, the club had won a total of four league titles, it had claimed the Scottish Cup seven times and the Scottish League Cup a total of five times. The majority of these successes came during the 1980s. During this time they also won the European Cup Winners Cup, beating Real Madrid in the final in 1983. In the same year they defeated S V Hamburg to win the European Super Cup.
