This season will be the first time that Real Madrid will play with green color at official meetings althought the team wore a green jersey one time in its history. In the summer of 1965, Real Madrid toured American soil in order to prove its new additions. The team visited Argentina, Chile, Peru, Venezuela and the United States. Precisely in the Venezuelan country there was a meeting that went unnoticed at the time, but it was important for the history of Real Madrid. In Caracas, Real Madrid had to wear green because the Argentine team, River Plate, its rival that day (August 25) wore white.
