Great Los Che side
Further championships have followed in 1971, 2002 and 2004.
The last great Los Che side to win a league title was managed by none other than Rafa Benitez and led by current LaLiga ambassadors David Albelda, who took the reins from fellow La Liga Ambassador Gaizka Mendieta.
Camp de Mestalla
Within walking distance of the city centre, just across the old river bed of the Turia, is Valencia's ‘Camp de Mestalla', which has hosted the club's games since May 1923, making it the oldest football stadium in La Liga.
Regularly renovated over the decades, and a host of games at both the 1982 World Cup and 1992 Olympic Games, Mestalla currently seats 55,000 and is renowned to be one of the most atmospheric stadiums in La Liga.
Valencia's closest neighbours in La Liga are the city's other team Levante, who in recent years have provided a stiff test in regular derbies.
There is also local rivalry with Villarreal, from the neighbouring province of Castellon.
This season Marcelino's side drew away at both Levante and Villarreal, winning the return game 3-0 against the Yellow Submarine, with another city derby against Los Granotas at Mestalla coming up on April 14.
The club's current successful era has been overseen by Singaporean Peter Lim, maximum shareholder since 2014, and current president Anil Murthy.
This has seen a big focus from the club on international marketing and expansion, with a significant growth in the club's global fan base.
The 2018-19 club captain is Dani Parejo, a Spain international midfielder who has emerged as a skilful and combative leader over recent seasons.
The club's excellent ‘cantera' youth system has also supplied left-back Jose Gaya and young midfielders Carlos Soler and Ferran Torres. South Korean starlet Lee Kang-In is another to watch for the future.
Other vital squad members include Spain international striker Rodrigo Moreno, Central African Republic midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, Portuguese winger Goncalo Guedes and Brazilian goalkeeper Neto Murara.
The remaining months of the campaign will see Valencia aim for a top four La Liga finish, as well as facing Barcelona in early June's Copa del Rey final and continuing to progress in the Europa League. Los Che look set to continue their success well into their second century of existence.
