History and description

The stadium, which has a capacity of more than 80,000, is known for its roofless skyboxes and its location next to the Instituto Cervantes. Estadio Vicente Calderón was built in the 1960s as the replacement for Atlético Madrid's then-home Stadium Metropolitano. The stadium, which has a capacity of more than eighty thousand, is known for its roofless skyboxes and its location next to the Instituto Cervantes. The stadium Metropolitano had been the home of Atlético since 1923, but had significantly aged and Real Madrid had just opened the new Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.

The Madrid City Council bought land on the southern edge of the city on the banks of the river Manzaneras. Many fans objected to a site that was deemed outside of the city.

On the 2nd of October 1966, the Estadio Vicente Calderón officially opened with a league match between Atlético and Valencia. Although construction of the main stand had not been finished yet due to funding problems, the stadium was finally completed on the 29th of May 1970.

The stadium was finally completed in 1970, and it had a capacity of 62,000 seats without any standing areas which made Estadio Vicente Calderón the first large all-seater stadium in Europe.

In 1971, the stadium's name was changed to honour club president Vicente Calderón, who had overseen its construction.

The Estadio Vicente Calderón was selected as one of the playing venues of the 1982 World Cup, during which it hosted three second-round group matches.

The stadium has not changed much over the years, and only received a few refurbishments that included the installation of the red-white-and-blue seats, which also reduced capacity somewhat.

In 2011, Atletico Madrid announced plans to replace Estadio Vicente Calderon with a new stadium, Wanda Metropolitano, at the site of Estadio de la Peineta in the east of the city. Atletico stated their ambition to move into their new home in 2015, but works progressed slowly and completion was pushed back to the start of the 2017-18 season.

The last match at Estadio Vicente Calderon was played on May 27, 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).

Following Atletico Madrid's move to their new stadium, the Vicente Calderón will be demolished and replaced by a new development that likely includes apartment buildings and a park.

How to get to Estadio Vicente Calderon

The Estadio Vicente Calderón is located on the south-western edge of Madrid's city centre, on the banks of the river Manzaneras and along the M-30 motorway which runs underneath its main stand. The stadium is approximately 30 minutes 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 lies on Metro line 5, which crosses right through Madrid's center (e.g. stops Ópera, Callao, and Gran Via). Metro station Marques de Vadillo, also on line 5, but on the other side of the river, lies a 15-minute walk away from the stadium.

The Pirámides station is also served by Cercanía commuter trains. The C-7 and C-10 connect 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 rather quiet urban neighbourhood, though not far away from the southern edge of Madrid?s city centre. There are a few restaurants and bars around, but it might be easier to eat or drink in the centre and then take a metro to the stadium. It has lower ratings, but might be more appealing to some people if it's more affordable.

If you want to enjoy some sightseeing or nightlife while staying in the city centre, staying in the southern part of the city may be a better option. Hotel Puerta de Toledo, Hotel Gavinet, and HRC Hotel get good reviews and are reasonably affordable, so they're within 15 minutes walking distance from either the stadium or Plaza Mayor.

Jose Manuel Gil Santacruz writes: I would like to remark that nowadays it is very easy to get to the stadium by bike. There is a linear park that runs along the Manzanares river, and if you start your trip from the Royal Palace side that faces the river, you can enjoy all the bridges (old and new) that have been designed throughout the years, and take a beer or refreshments on the stylish kiosks located each 500 meters.

If you begin your trip to the stadium from the Royal Palace side that faces the river, you can enjoy all the bridges (old and new) that have been designed throughout the years, and take a beer or refreshments on the stilish kiosks located each 500 meters.
