About Atlético de Madrid
The Wanda Metropolitano stadium was inaugurated in 2017, replacing the historic Vicente Calderón stadium that hosted the colchoneros matches since 1966. The Wanda Metropolitano has a capacity of 68.000 spectators.
It is one of the most modern stadiums in Europe and this is demonstrated by his spectacular roof and LED lighting throughout the stadium. The closeness of the stands to the pitch ensures a unique atmosphere in all the games, being able to appreciate all the players very closely and live football experiences like never before.
The atletico fiefdom is located in the San Blas-Canillejas district, next to the M-40 motorway in the eastern part of the city, specifically on Avenida Luis Aragonés.

The red & white club is the third team with more league titles in their showcases, behind Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. One of his best times in terms of titles was during the decade of 2010 with Simeone on the benches, winning 2 Europa Leagues, 1 Copa del Rey and reaching 2 Champions League finals. Another of the glorious times of the colchonero team was in the late 40s and early 50s with Helenio Herrera as a coach, during that period won 2 consecutive leagues having at that time more leagues than his eternal rival, Real Madrid.
The eternal rival of Atletico de Madrid is Real Madrid. The two most important teams of the spanish capital face each year in the Madrid derby, one of the most competitive matches in La Liga.
