More about Atlético Madrid

Club info

Club Atlético de Madrid commonly known as Atlético de Madrid or Atlético is a Spanish professional football club based in Madrid and is currently playing in La Liga.

 
Clublogo Atlético de Madrid

In terms of importance of titles and number of followers, Atlético Madrid is the third most successful club in Spanish football, behind Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. In terms of the number of titles, Atlético Madrid is the fourth most successful club in Spanish football, behind Real Madrid, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao. Atlético have won La Liga on ten occasions, including a league and cup double in 1996; the Copa del Rey on ten occasions; two Supercopas de España and one Copa Eva Duarte; in Europe, they won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1962, were runners-up in 1963 and 1986, were European Cup runners-up in 1974 and 2014, won the Europa League in 2010 and in 2012, won the UEFA Super Cup in 2010 and 2012, won the Intertoto Cup in 2007, as well as the 1974 Intercontinental Cup.

The club play their home games at the Vicente Calderón, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. In 2016, Atlético are due to move to their new home of Estadio La Peineta, which will have a capacity of 70,000. Atlético's home kit is red and white vertical striped shirts, with blue shorts, accompanied by blue and red socks. This combination has been used since 1911. The current club kits are manufactured by Nike and the main sponsor is Plus500.


Vicente Calderón with Atlético de Madrid fans

During their history, the club has been known by a number of nicknames, including Los Colchoneros ("The Mattress Makers"), due to their first team stripes being the same colours as old-fashioned mattresses. During the 1970s, they became known as Los Indios, allegedly due to the club signing several South American players after the restrictions on signing foreign players were lifted. However, there are a number of alternative theories which claim they were named so because their stadium is "camped" on the river bank, or because Los Indios (The Indians) were the traditional enemy of Los Blancos (The Whites), which is the nickname of the club's city rivals, Real Madrid.

Felipe VI, the current king of Spain, has been the honorary president of the club since 2003. The club co-owns the Indian Super League franchise in Kolkata, named Atlético de Kolkata, which won the inaugural season of the competition in 2014.

Madrid derby
Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid are clubs with contrasting identities and very different fates. While Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu Stadium proudly rises on Paseo de la Castellana in the wealthy Chamartín neighbourhood of northern Madrid, Atlético's less glamorous Vicente Calderón Stadium stands way down south, in the working class barrio of Arganzuela. Historically, Real Madrid have long been seen as the establishment club. On the other side, the Rojiblancos were always characterized by a sentimiento de rebeldía, a sense of rebellion, although during the early Francisco Franco years, it was Atlético that was the preferred team of the regime, albeit forcibly. They were associated with the military airforce (renamed Atlético Aviación), until the regime's preferences moved towards Real Madrid in the 1950s.

Certainly, the dictatorial state sought to make political capital out of Real Madrid's European Cup trophies at a time when Spain was internationally isolated; "Real Madrid are the best embassy we ever had", said one minister. Such perceptions have had an important impact on the city's footballing identities, tapping into the collective consciousness. In this vein, Atlético fans were probably the originators, and are the most frequent singers, of the song, sung to the tune of the Real Madrid anthem, "Hala Madrid, hala Madrid, el equipo del gobierno, la vergüenza del país", "Go Madrid, go Madrid, the government's team, the country's shame."

Recently, Atlético Madrid had struggled massively in the derby, carrying a fourteen-year winless streak into the 2012–13 season. However, the tide turned on 17 May 2013 when Atletico Madrid beat their city rivals 2–1 in Estadio Santiago Bernabeu to take home the Copa del Rey trophy, and continued on 29 September 2013 when they won a 1–0 victory, again in Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.


The fans for the match Atlético de Madrid - Real Madrid

Kit
Atlético began playing in blue and white, similar to Athletic Bilbao, but soon changed to their traditional red and white stripes by 1911. Many believe the change was influenced because red and white striped tops were the cheapest stripes to make, as the same combination was used to make bed mattresses, and the unused cloth was easily converted into football shirts. The kit has been made by Nike for the past nine years, as the company wants to provide competition against Real Madrid, who have a deal with Adidas. The current shirt sponsor is Azerbaijan, while Kyocera has a sponsor's logo on the back of the shirt, Finnish gambling monopoly PAF has a sponsorship on the club's shorts and the AXN cable channel, a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, has a minor sponsorship on the back of the shorts. The shirt sponsorship by Azerbaijan has been condemned by Reporters Without Borders, who satirized it in a campaign visual in which the shirt's vertical stripes become prison bars with the logo "Azerbaijan, Land of Repression". Atlético Madrid admits its sponsorship deal with Azerbaijan has a political dimension, saying the intention is to "promote the image of Azerbaijan". In August 2014, the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights wrote to Atlético, calling on it to end the sponsorship by and promotion of Azerbaijan because of Azerbaijan's human rights record, calling it "one of the most repressive countries in the world".

Experiences from our customers

Glenn Enfield from Maidstone, 3 persons 24 April 2016
Atlético Madrid - Málaga CF

I could not be any happier with the service and tickets that we were provided. The atmosphere at the Vicente Calderón was fantastic and the ease of not having to find flights and accommodation separately just added to the high opinion I have for this website. Madrid is an amazing city and I would highly recommend it to everyone, I am already contemplating a return at the beginning of next season. For anyone on the wall about using the website, I have nothing but praise for the service that FootballBreak has provided.

Tip: Do the stadium tour as well, only 10 euros and is quiet interesting. I would also recommend looking up a few Spanish phrases as outside the main town centre we found very few people spoke English (understandable really).

James Fisher from Kelvedon, 2 persons 12 March 2016
Atlético Madrid - Deportivo La Coruña

We can highly recommend doing a football break. We were astounded with the quality of the hotel and staff for the price we paid.

Tip: Just soak up the atmosphere of Madrid.

Kevin Hughes, 6 persons 17 May 2015
Atlético Madrid - FC Barcelona

I booked a trip for six of us to travel to Madrid for two nights, watching Atletico Madrid v Barcelona on the Sunday evening. Having never previously organised such a trip I was slightly nervous at booking flights, hotel and match tickets all via one company but Footballbreak.co.uk made it all very smooth.

We were able to select our hotel from a range of choices, and the Aquaria Negresco was ours. It wasn\'t spectacular but a very clean and friendly three star, decent sized rooms, really helpful and welcoming staff and a superb location. It\'s worth choosing a central location, as we did - getting around wasn\'t an issue as plenty of bars and restaurants were within walkable distance. We were also able to stroll to the Vicente Calderon in around 25 minutes. Easy enough.

Our match took place over the weekend of the planned La Liga strike so there was apprehension about it going ahead, but our contact at Footballbreak.co.uk assured me similar incidents have always been resolved in the past, and so it proved again. The game went ahead. I\'d been told tickets would be delivered to our hotel by 10am on the day of the game - and they were, sealed in an envelope and in my name. The six of us were seated together, and we had a great view.

All in all, it was a great weekend and everything went smoothly in terms of booking, and things being organised. I\'d do it again in the future, and when I do, I\'ll definitely turn to the same company again.

Mr Skinner from Sutton 1 February 2012
Atlético Madrid - FC Barcelona

The package was great - no problems. Everything went smoothly. The airline, hotel and Atletico staff all knew what to do as soon as we showed them the vouchers that we'd been supplied with. The seats were great, as was the atmosphere at the stadium.

Madrid

Barcelona’s great rival might not have the Mediterranean at its doorstep, but this doesn’t make it any less enthralling a destination. Fizzing with life and energy, Madrid is the cradle of the Spanish movida, the counter-cultural movement that exploded in the city after the end of the Francoist dictatorship. The city continues to echo this emblematic period in its openness, fashion, and underground scene. And, of course, its dedication to partying till the sun comes up.

More about Madrid

City info

Barcelona’s great rival might not have the Mediterranean at its doorstep, but this doesn’t make it any less enthralling a destination. Fizzing with life and energy, Madrid is the cradle of the Spanish movida, the counter-cultural movement that exploded in the city after the end of the Francoist dictatorship. The city continues to echo this emblematic period in its openness, fashion, and underground scene. And, of course, its dedication to partying till the sun comes up.

 

Sight-seeing in Madrid

The Prado Museum (metro Line 1, Atocha stop) is an absolutely essential item on your itinerary. The biggest art gallery in the world, it has more than 7,000 masterpieces of Spanish painting (of which only 1,500 are exhibited) dating from the 15 th to 18th centuries. It is also well-stocked with the works of the great masters of the Italian and Flemish school. El Greco, Velázquez, Titian, Rembrandt – if you want to see them all, dedicate an entire day. If you’re a real art nut, section off a second one!

The Reina Sofía Museum (metro Line 1 Atocha stop), picks up where the Prado stops, exhibiting Spanish and international artworks from the 19th century to the contemporary era. Here you’ll find Picasso’s legendary “Guernica”, which depicts the brutal bombing of the Basque town during the Spanish Civil War.

Meanwhile, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (metro Line 2 Banco de España stop), hosts one of the most exquisite private collections of paintings in the world.

Madrid’s historical buildings are as inspiring as its museums and art galleries.

Its streets are an extensive open-air museum, where you can follow the evolution of the city into a modern capital simply by walking through them. To discover old Madrid, go to the Puerta del Sol (literally, Door of the Sun) or the Plaza Mayor. Other great landmarks that give a flavour of the city’s history and beauty are the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), Casa de la Villa (City Hall), Plaza Cibeles, Teatro Real, Gran Vía, Puerta de Alcalá, Parque Retiro, and Plaza de España.

  

 

Madrid cuisine

When we think of Spanish gastronomy, the first things that come to mind are usually paella, potato omelette and cold tomato soup (gazpacho). But while these dishes are served all over the country, they are far from representing the full range of Iberian cuisine.

In Madrid, meals are often large, and sauce-based dishes are at the top of the menu. Cocido madrileño (a type of stew made up of meat, sausage and chickpeas) and callos (tripe in sauce) are two of the capital’s most typical dishes.

If you like picking at small plates, go to Melo’s bar (Metro Line 3, Lavapiés stop). Don’t be put off by the aesthetics of the place, or by its crowded interior. You’ll regret you missed out! It’s a veritable institution of the neighbourhood, serving mouth-watering tapas at very reasonable prices. Their croquetas and zapatillas (giant ham and cheese melts) have a reputation for being the best in the world!

As for the sweet stuff – you can’t do Madrid without sampling the inimitable churros (long, greasy sticks of deep-fried dough) and porras (a type of churro on steroids). They are often accompanied by a café con leche (coffee with milk) or thick, hot chocolate for dipping. They have a particular appeal to those staggering home after a night out!

One of the most famous chocolaterías in the city is the Chocolatería San Gines (metro Lines 1, 2 or 3, Sol stop, or Lines 2 and 5, Opera stop). This gourmet paradise has many dedicated fans. Will you join them?

  

 

Madrid, Spanish fashion capital

Madrid fashion is a veritable melting pot of trends and styles, and there is something for all tastes and budgets.

Gran Via is the main street, and between the metro stations of Gran Via and Santo Domingo you’ll find stores like C&A, H&M, Nike, Zara, Oysho, Primark, Pull&Bear, Clarks and others. Shopping addicts will be sure to leave with their arms loaded! 

In the Salamanca neighbourhood, the streets of Claudio Coello, José Ortega y Gasset and Serrano make up the “golden kilometre” of chic Madrid. Here, prestigious designer brands such as Chanel, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Carolina Herrera, Gucci, Armani and Louis Vuitton all display their most recent collections in their windows.

More alternative shops and independent boutiques are based around the axis of Malasaña – Fuencarral – Chueca, often squeezed between an abundance of tattoo parlours. Vintage fans will find heaven in the Templo de Susu (metro Lines 1 and 10, Tribunal stop or at PoplandHere you can plunge straight into the legacy of the movida, Madrid’s explosive 1980s counter-cultural scene.

If you like picking through bric-a-brac and second-hand clothes in search of a bargain, then go to the Rastro flea market. It is held in and around the street of Ribera de Curtidores every Sunday and bank holiday. There are few places as typically madrileño as this. Those who arrive before 11.00am can wander through the stalls freely, but if you prefer the more bustling atmosphere characteristic of the market, get there between 12pm and 3pm (when it closes).

  

 

Getting around Madrid

The Spanish capital has a vast public transport network. However, most of the tourist zone is concentrated in the heart of the city, so you can access most sights by foot without wearing yourself out.

The Madrid metro is one of the oldest in Europe (after those of Paris and London) and has 13 lines that will take you to almost any corner of the city. The advantage of the metro is its speed and the fact that it runs from 06.00am to 01.30am every day. It’s also free for children under 4.

The bus is an excellent alternative to the metro if you’re not in a rush, and especially if you want to admire the city on your journeys. The network is dense, practical and particularly fast thanks to the dedicated bus lanes. It goes from 6am to 11.30pm, after which time the night buses or búhos (owls) take over. Two lines serve all neighbourhoods of Madrid. On weekdays they go every 35 mins from 11.45pm to 4am (with the last one at 5.10am). Fridays, Saturdays and nights before bank holidays they go from 11.45pm to 5.30am, every 15-20 mins from the Plaza de Cibeles.

You can buy several different types of day tickets and season tickets in metro stations, either at the ticket machine or from the ticket office. Some newspaper kiosks on the street also supply them. Both the metro and bus function on the same system of tickets and fares. However, the “cercanía” trains that serve the Madrid suburbs have their own fare system.

Single tickets: €1.50 per journey in Madrid centre (Zone A) by bus, by metro or on the ML1 (Tramway Line 1). You pay an extra €0.10 for each of the next five stops, to a maximum of €2.00. No panic, the ticket machine or ticket seller will tell you how much you need to pay.

The Metrobus pass gives you ten trips, which can be used by several people at the same time, and is valid for all of inner Madrid (Zone A) by bus, metro or Tram Line 1, and costs only €12.20. Be warned, though. If you buy it from the airport, you’ll have to add a €3 airport supplement per person.

Tourist passes (abonos turísticos) are available for 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7 days. There are two versions and prices depending on the zones covered.

The A fare is for those who only want to get around the city centre. It covers the metro, ML1, buses and urban <i>cercanías</i>. Respectively, they cost €8.40, €14.20, €18.40, €26.80 €35.40 (there is a reduction of 50% for under 11’s).

The T fare includes all urban transport within the community of Madrid (thus including the ML2 and ML3 tram lines, Cercanías lines and intercity buses going to Àlcala de Henares, San Lorenzo de El Escorial and Anranjuez. The buses extend to Toledo, Cuenca and Guadalajara: respectively costing €17, €28.40, €35.40, €50.80 and €70.80 (50% reduction for under 11s). 

Click here to access the metro map of Madrid and its fare zones. The website of Madrid metropolitan trains allows you to consult an interactive map of public transport as well as find the best route for your journey. You can also check the timetables of each line and, even better, get real time status updates for the entire system.

 

 

Madrid at night

We know that the Spanish can party to the max. But with Madrid it’s on a whole new level.

The main artery of the city is Gran Via (Line 2, Santo Domingo stop or Lines 3 and 5 Callao stop). Here you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the rooftop terraces of the Ada or Urban hotels, while taking in the spectacular Spanish sunset.

When night has fallen, people flock to the Rialto Movistar, Príncipe, Lope de Vega, Compac Gran Vía and Caser Calderón theatres to watch plays and musicals. The restaurant-cabaret Gula Gula deserves a special mention due to its outrageous drag shows, which will put a smile on even the soberest face.

n the Malasaña neighbourhood (metro Lines 3 and 10 Tribunal or Plaza España stops, Line 2 Noviciado stop) you can experience the nostalgia of the movida in a host of alternative bars and venues. Rock and punk artists hold sway here, each one more underground than the next. In Ojalahave a drink with your feet in the sand while enjoying organic snacks and watching animated films projected onto the stone walls. Pretty original, right. Tupperware goes for a more kitsch vibe, as does Vía Láctea  (literally, the Milky Way), where the walls and ceilings are covered in posters and signs straight out of the 80s. The belting rock music will definitely leave your ears ringing.

If you’re not ready to stop after your tour of Malasaña, head to Chueca, the capital’s gay neighbourhood. It is the most open and cosmopolitan part of Madrid, welcoming people of all ages and predilections. Fun is guaranteed any night of the week – right up to sunrise.

Those who love clubbing and pulling all-nighters will be fully at home in Madrid. There are many late night venues, and they generally don’t close their doors until the early hours of the morning. One of the biggest club is Teatro Kapital (metro Line 1 Atocha stop), which is spread over a whopping 7 floors, with different music played in every room. Siroco, (à Malasaña), is a temple for alternative music, with an eclectic programming that means it’s possible to dance to techno one night and reggae the next.
