    Vicente Calderon

    by solopes Updated Apr 26, 2014
    Madrid

    Portuguese are soccer lovers, jealous of the better games played in Spain. It's common, for those who may, to travel to Spain only to see a game (or a bullfight). Madrid and Barcelona are the top destinations, with Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid dividing the capital.

    In the central quarter of Arganzuela, this stadium belongs to Atletico, and it was the first one to have individual sits to all the people allowed - 70000.

    The Estadio Vincente Calderon is home to the Atletico de Madrid Football Club. It was named after a famous club president Vincente Calderon, although originally called Estadio Manzanares. The Spanish national team plays regular international games in the stadium which can hold 54,851 people. In 2003 it was given a UEFA 5 star stadium rating. The stadium has also been the venue for concerts.

    Atletico Madrid

    Atletico are very much the poor relations to Real Madrid but their fans made us feel vey welcome. A week prevuious the powers that be at UEFA had pronounced the game should be played 200 miles away but thankfully common sense prevailed and the decision was delayed.

    Watching Atletico de Madrid

    Atletico vs Racing Santander - September 2007

    For a great night of footy try Atletico Madrid. I wouldn't say it's more authentic than Real Madrid but there are certainly fewer tourists!
    I paid €25 to sit by the corner spot (lateral) and even though the opposition on the day - Racing Santander - aren't one of Atletico's great rivals, the atmosphere was still passionate and noisy.
    Try visiting the club museum before the match to see the collection of trophies won over the years and a variety of shirts, photos and other memorabilia. The displays are only in Spanish but there are guided tours available.
    It's closed on Mondays but open right up until kick-off on match days. The entrance is via the bar/restaurant by gate 23.
    The club shop is also fun to buy a souvenir and is a hive of activity on match days. The entrance is situated between gates 25 and 26.

    Vicente Calderon Stadium

    Atletico Madrid are the 'other' football team in Madrid, but are a top European club in their own right. Their stadium, the Vicente Calderon, has the 28th largest capacity in Europe, seating 57,500 people. Here you can watch Atletico take on other sides in La Liga, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia. You are probably more likely to get a ticket to an Atletico match than a Real match.
