The Vicente Calderon started life as the Estadio Manzanares in 1966, with its inauguration game between Atletico and Valencia seeing it become the first major all-seat stadium in Europe. Its name was changed in 1971 in honour of the club’s then-President.

In 1982 the ground was used to stage World Cup matches – hosting three games – and is rated a five-star venue by UEFA, having received this accolade in 2003.

One remarkable feature of the 54,960-capacity Vicente Calderon is that the M-30 dual carriageway, running from the South Node Segovia Bridge, passes directly below one of the main stands.
