History and description

The new Wanda Metropolitano stadium is the new home of Atletico Madrid. It replaced Estadio Vicente Calderon, which lacked the possibilities for expansion and modernization that were needed due to it being enclosed by a river and a motorway on one side and residential buildings on the other. A detailed plan for the stadium was presented in late 2011, still in combination with a Madrid bid for the 2020 or 2024 Olympic Games. While the stadium was designed as a football-specific stadium with the stands close to the pitch, plans allowed for the temporary construction of an athletics track on top of the lower tier.

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

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 funding difficulties and the failure of the olympic bids.

On December 3, 2016, Atletico Madrid 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.

Wanda Metropolitano, an arena that officially opened on 16 September 2017, hosted its first league match between Atletico and Malaga on 1-0.

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

How to get to Wanda Metropolitano

Wanda Metropolitano is located in northeastern Madrid on the outskirts of Barajas airport. It's roughly 10 kilometers from central Madrid. Metro station Estadio Metropolitano is easily reached by metro. The 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).

Address: Wanda Metropolitano, 28022 Madrid

Eat, drink, and sleep near Wanda Metropolitano

Whereas the old Vicente Calderon was located in a charming neighbourhood, the area around Wanda Metrpolitano does not compare favourably to other areas of the city. This is due to its location surrounded on all sides by highways and large apartment blocks that make it difficult for Atletico fans to enjoy the neighbourhood. There is little reason to head to the stadium long in advance of the game in Spain.

Alternatively, you can take a bus from the Wanda Metropolitano stop (the one closest to the Metro) and get off at the last stop, where you will find a few hotels. These include an ibis budget near the train station and an occidental by the bullfighting ring.

Information on hotels in the San Blas area near Wanda Metropolitano is available here. As the stadium is easily accessible by public transport, you can explore other hotel options elsewhere in Madrid by clicking here.

Atletico Madrid Tickets

Tickets for Atletico Madrid games can be bought online through the club website or through the entradas.com portal. Prices for tickets can vary depending on the opponent, but typically start at ?60.00 for upper tier seats behind the goal to ?150.00 for best seats at the main stand for a regular league match. Most lower and middle tier seats behind the goal and on the sides go for around ?80.00 to ?100.00, while a few upper corner seats at the old La Peineta stand go for about ?40.00. Expect to pay more for high-profile games.

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

And public transport information for the Madrid area is emtmadrid.es Nobody wants to go to this stadium. It's been predicted that within a few years, they'll be lucky to get 30,000 people turning up. It's that bleak. Leaving the iconic, central and beautiful Calderón for this might be the worst trade in history.

I attended the 2019 champs League final here.

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

. As Atletico Madrid fans, we are sad to see them transfer away from the iconic, central and beautiful Calderón stadium. Although this move may be bad for them in the short term, it will ultimately kill them as they will struggle to attract fans in the future. This is a very bleak situation for them and they will likely be lucky if they can draw 30,000 people at their new ground within a few years.

The stadium is beautiful and the metro is just outside. Tickets are available from ticket booths (mine cost me ?30). I didn't see any programs being available, but there is a shop outside the stadium as well.
