History and description

The new stadium has an all-seated capacity of just over 80,000 and was built with a focus on fan experience. The recently opened Wanda Metropolitano Stadium is the new home of Atletico Madrid. It replaces Estadio Vicente Calderon, which lacked the potential for expansion and modernization given its proximity to a river and a motorway on one side and residential buildings on the other. The new stadium has an all-seated capacity of just over 80,000 and was built with a focus on fan experience in mind. A plan for a new stadium was presented in late 2011, still in combination with a Madrid bid for the 2020 or 2024 Olympics. While the stadium was designed as a football-specific stadium, plans allowed for the temporary construction of an athletics track on top of the lower tier.

The new stadium was built on the site of Estadio La Peineta, an athletics stadium that had a large concrete stand. Parts of the stand were incorporated into the design of the new stadium, while the rest was demolished. The project was partially financed through the sale of the land of Estadio Vicente Calderon.

The initial building works started quickly after the club announced its plans in 2011, but progressed slowly. The club had initially set an estimated completion date for 2015, but this was later moved back to 2017 due to the failure of the Olympic bids and subsequent funding difficulties.

On December 16, 2016, Atletico announced that their new stadium would be called Wanda Metropolitano, with Wanda being the sponsor name and Metropolitano a reference to their first proper stadium, Estadio Metropolitano.

The stadium has been designed to accommodate 35,000 spectators. Wanda Metropolitano officially opened on September 16 with a league match between Atletico and Malaga (1-0). The stadium was designed to accommodate 35,000 spectators.

Wanda Metropolitano has been selected to host the 2019 Champions League final.

How to get to Wanda Metropolitano

Wanda Metropolitano is located in the north-east of Madrid. It is roughly 10 kilometers from central Madrid, and it is situated towards Barajas airport. The stadium is easily reached by metro. Metro station Estadio Metropolitano lies right next to the stadium. Estadio Metropolitano is a stop on the orange line 7, which runs north of central Madrid. From central Madrid, a change is required at, for example, Pueblo Nuevo (line 5), Avenida de America (line 4, 6, and 9) or Gregorio Maranon (line 10).

Station Las Musas is within walking distance of the stadium. Alternatively, the stadium can be walked to from station Torre Arias, which lies on line 5.

Address: Wanda Metropolitano, 28022 Madrid

Eat, drink, and sleep near Wanda Metropolitano

Whereas the old Vicente Calderon stadium was located in a charming neighbourhood, the area around Wanda Metrpolitano is less appealing. Enclosed on one side by a motorway, and the other by a rather anonymous residential neighbourhood consisting of rows of large apartment blocks, it is no wonder that Atletico fans were reluctant to move here. It is true that Spain has a few local restaurants or bars, but there are not many reasons to go to the stadium before the game.

There are no hotels directly near Wanda Metropolitano, though there are a few options about 30 minutes away in the San Blas area that get good reviews. These include Ilunion Alcala Norte, Ibis Madrid Valentin Beato, Ibis Budget Valentin Beato, and the Occidental Madrid Este. All of these hotels receive good reviews.

Atletico Madrid Tickets

Tickets to Atletico Madrid games can be purchased online through the club website or through the entradas.com portal. Prices for tickets vary depending on the opponent, but a seat in the upper tier behind the goal will cost about ?60.00, while the best seats in the main stand for a regular league match can cost upwards of ?150.00. Most lower and middle tier seats go for around ?80.00 to ?100.00, while a few seats towards the top of the old La Peineta stand are priced at around ?40.00. It is usually more expensive to buy tickets for high-profile games.

Atletico fills the Wanda Metropolitano quite nicely, but tickets are easily available for most league fixtures.

Useful websites

Club Atlético de Madrid's Official Website, Esmadrid.com, is theofficial guide for the city of Madrid and offers travel information as well as articles about the club. Metromadrid.com offers metro travel information for Madrid residents. Lastly, Emtmadrid.es provides public transport information for Madrid visitors. No one in their right mind would want to go to this stadium. It'll be lucky if the stadium can draw 30,000 people within the next few years. It's quite sad and leaving the iconic, central and beautiful Calderón for this might be one of the worst trades in history.

I attended the 2019 champs League final here.

What is really striking is that behind the seats there is basically nothing. There are a few small food and drink outlets housed in a grim concrete concourse. It is simply incomparable to the new Tottenham ground, or to Wembley or the Arsenal stadium (the after two being a decade older than this monstrosity).

for Atletico Madrid.

The game itself wasn't the best; Atletico won the first leg 4-0, so it was already decided before the second game. The stadium is beautiful and the metro is just outside. Tickets are available from ticket booths (mine was 30 euros). I didn't see any programs being available. There is a shop outside the stadium as well.
