Atletico Madrid smashed their record profit margins for a matchday in Saturday’s opening match at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
Antoine Griezmann’s strike just after the hour mark got Los Rojiblancos off to a winning start to life at their new home against Malaga, but it has now been reported there was good news off the pitch too.
Marca report Atleti recorded a turnover upwards of €200k on Saturday – which more than trebled the club’s previous record, which was against Osasuna at the Calderon in April as part of their Children’s Day.
Matchday posters and t-shirts celebrating the day sold out at the club’s premises while a high volume of club shirts, scarves and training gear were also sold on the day.
