The stadium was inaugurated in 2017 and its name is in homage to the Estadio Metropolitano, where the team used to play in the 1960s.
Unique in Europe
The New Atlético de Madrid stadium has one of the best atmospheres in all Europe, thanks to the acoustics, light show, and the passionate fans, who can be found in the stands every Sunday.
The main stand dates back to 1996, when the "La Peineta" sports complex was inaugurated, an athletics stadium which formed part of the Madrid Olympic bid in 2012, 2016 and 2020, and whose structure was used for the new stadium.
For many fans, it was still tough to leave the old Calderón stadium, a place with 116 years of Atleti history.
Around the stadium
As well as visiting the stadium and its complex, visitors to Avenida de Luis Aragonés can also enjoy the sights the club has created to surround the stadium.
The most important is the "Legends Walk" a collection of plaques that pay homage to Atleti's heroes of the past and present, such as Milinko Pantic, Luis Aragonés, Diego Pablo Simeone, Fernando Torres or Diego Godín.
The stadium also has a large sign which reads “Con coraje y corazón” (with courage and heart), which is a good spot to take a photo next to the official shop.
