MARCA is a Spanish national daily sports newspaper owned by Unidad Editorial. The newspaper focuses primarily on football, in particular the day-to-day activities of Real Madrid CF. It has a daily readership of over 2,749,000, the highest in Spain for a daily newspaper, and more than half of sports readership.
Since February 2001 there has also been an associated 24-hour/day sports radio station, Radio Marca. In 2010 appeared the tv channel MARCA TV.
On 25 November 1942 it ceased being published as a weekly publication and has been published as a daily ever since.
On December 21, 2007 MARCA hosted a gala event, featuring the leading Spanish sportsmen of the 20th century, to celebrate the newspaper's 70th anniversary. 
The paper has been involved in an ongoing dispute with Sir Alex Ferguson since the summer of 2008 when he accused MARCA of being "...a vehicle to unsettle players" on behalf of Real Madrid - in reference to the alleged tapping-up of Cristiano Ronaldo.
