Atlético de Madrid is one of the 2 teams from Madrid that play in the ‘Primera’, the other being Real Madrid. This year marks the centenary of this great club and a number of events have been organised over the course of it. The team was founded in 1903 and plays out of the famous Vicente Calderón stadium, which is situated on the banks of the Manzanares river.
The Rugby World Cup starts this weekend (October 10th) in Australia.So, if you can’t bear to miss the England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland games, and you find yourself in Madrid at this time, find yourself an Irish pub.
David Beckham joined Real Madrid last month and you can find the number ’23’ shirt all over the country’s capital. I have seen prices as low as 48 Euros (not sure how genuine they were) and topping put at 78 Euros. Tickets for Real Madrid’s Bernabeu stadium are now in hotter demand than ever, so where can you pick them up? A number of searches on the Internet will churn up tickets that cost around 250 Euros! I would recommend looking at this discussion board for some interesting and useful advice. You could also try the Real Madrid site itself and contact them directly.
Getting to the Bernabeu is pretty straighforward, you can catch the number 27 bus (or any number of others) up the Paseo de la Castellana or take line 10 on the Metro
