History and description

It has a capacity of over 80,000 and is located in the southeastern section of Madrid. The Estadio Vicente Calderón was built in the 1960s to replace Atlético's then-home stadium, Metropolitano. It has a capacity of over 80,000 and is located in the southeastern section of Madrid. The Stadium Metropolitano had been the home of Atlético since 1923, but had significantly aged and its rivals Real Madrid had just opened the new Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.

The municipality of Madrid purchased land on the southern edge of the city in order to build a new stadium closer to Madrid's center. Many Madrid fans were opposed to the site, feeling that it was located outside of the city.

The original Estadio Vicente Calderón opened its doors on October 2nd, 1966 with a 1-1 tie between Atlético Madrid and Valencia CF. Unfortunately, construction of the main stand hadn't been completed yet because of funding problems.

The stadium was finally completed in 1970, and it had a capacity of 62,000 seats. This made Estadio Vicente Calderón the first large all-seater stadium in Europe.

The stadium was originally called Estadio de Manzaneras, but its name was changed in 1971 in honor of club-president Vicente Calderón.

The 1982 World Cup was held at Estadio Vicente Calderón in Spain. This stadium hosted three second-round group matches.

The stadium remained largely unchanged over the years, though it did receive a few refurbishments that included the installation of patriotic red, white, and blue seats. This reduced the capacity somewhat.

In 2011, Atletico announced plans to replace their current stadium, the Estadio Vicente Calderon, with a new stadium, Wanda Metropolitano. However, works proceeded slowly and the stadium was not completed until the start of the 2017-18 season.

The last match at Estadio Vicente Calderon was played on May 27th, 2017 when Barcelona and Alaves squared off for the Copa del Rey final. Six days earlier, Atletico had played their last match at the stadium: a league match versus Athletic (3-1).

After Atletico Madrid moved to their new stadium, the Vicente Calderon will be demolished and replaced by a new development that likely includes apartment buildings and a park.

How to get to Estadio Vicente Calderon

It has an original capacity of 80,000 spectators and was built in 2002. The Estadio Vicente Calderón is located in the south-western edge of Madrid's city center and along the M-30 motorway which runs underneath the main stand. The stadium has an original capacity of 80,000 spectators and was built in 2002. The stadium is approximately a 30 minute walk from Plaza Mayor, and even less from Madrid'?s Palacio Real, from where it is an almost straight walk south.

The closest metro station is Pirámides, from which it is a 10-minute walk to the stadium. Pirámides is on metro line 5, which crosses right through Madrid's center (e.g. stops Opera, Callao, and Gran Via).

Pirámides Stations is also serviced by Cercanía commuter trains. Line C-7 and C-10 connects the stadium with, among others, train stations Atocha and Chamartín.

Address: Paseo Virgen del Puerto 67, 28005 Madrid

Eat, drink, and sleep near Estadio Vicente Calderon

The Estadio Vicente Calderón is located in a quiet neighbourhood, but it is not too far from the city centre. There are a few bars and restaurants around, but it might be easier to eat or drink in the city centre and then take a metro to the stadium. Both hotels offer great value for your money, especially when compared to other options in the area.

If you want to include some sightseeing or nightlife, staying in the southern part of the city centre may be a better option. Hotel Puerta de Toledo, Hotel Gavinet, and HRC Hotel get good reviews, are reasonably affordable, and are no more than 15 minutes walking from either the stadium or the Plaza Mayor.

What an experience. It was sad to hear they are moving away from the Cauldron - it was wonderful.

I am looking forward to our first trip in a couple of weeks time. We have bought tickets online directly from Atletico for the Spanish Super Cup match v Real. They emailed the tickets to me so I just need to print them off at home.

I would like to remark that nowadays you can easily reach the stadium by bike via the linear park that runs along the Manzanares river.If you start your trip towards the stadium at the Royal Palace side that faces the river, you can enjoy all of the bridges (old and new) that have been designed throughout the years, as well as take a beer or refreshment on the stylish kiosks located each 500 meters.
