Enjoy Soccer stadiums in Madrid during your trip

Madrid is Spain’s largest city and capital, and is also one of the largest cities in all of Europe. Madrid is also the countries soccer capital.  There is a permanent, heated debate across the country regarding which team is the best ever: Real Madrid or Barcelona. But, in regards to which city is the “soccer capital” there is no discussion, Madrid wins by a landslide. 

Spain is divided into Autonomous Communities in the same way the US is divided into states. Although Madrid is the largest city in the country, the autonomous community to which the city belongs (also named Madrid) is one of the smallest. But this hasn’t stopped Madrid from producing 4 teams in Spain’s top league, the  most of any other autonomous community. That is 20% of the teams that currently compete in the national league! 

The 4 teams from Madrid that currently play in the Liga Santander or La Liga as its known are: Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid, C.D. Leganés and Grtafe C.F. Plus there are three other clubs that play in the Spanish second division: Rayo Vallecano, A.D. Alcorcón and C.F. Fuenlabrada. 

Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid are 2 of the world´s best soccer teams. 

Stadium Santiago Bernabeu is located at the heart of the financial district in Madrid. It is even strange to find the stadium here. When it was first built this area in Madrid was basically empty. The Bernabeu stadium is one of Madrid´s most visited tourist attractions.  The  Wanda Metropolitano is Atletico del Madrid current stadium. This new, impressive stadium is located far from the Vicente Calderon stadium where Atletico played for decades.  These two scoccer stadiums in Madrid are amongst the citie´s top tourist attractions. 

You can also find the location of these stadiums in our Madrid interactive touristic map  as well as restaurants and other attractions you can combine with their visit.
