Real Club Celta de Vigo is a Spanish football club based in Vigo, Galicia. They currently feature in the Segunda Division.

Celta de Vigo were established on March 28, 1923 because of the mergence of Real Vigo Sporting and Real Fortuna Foot-ball Club. They achieved great success in the 1990s when they consolidated their place as one of the top six sides in La Liga and featured in the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League).

But Celta have spiralled down this decade and are now playing in the Segunda Division. In June 2007 they narrowly avoided going into administration.

Celta de Vigo play their home matches at the Balaidos that can accommodate 32,500 spectators. They bear the nickname “Los Celestes” (The Sky Blues).
