AS have claimed that despite Madrid losing its bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games, Atletico Madrid will still move into a new stadium.

The brand new ground was meant to be used as part of the Games, in seven years’ time. However, a vote in Buenos Aires on Saturday confirmed that Tokyo would host the sporting event.

The Madrid-based paper though, have claimed that the IOC rejection will not scupper Atleti’s plans to move into their new stadium in time for the 2015-16 season.

The capital club have played in their Vicente Calderon home since 1966.
