Best football stadiums to visit in Madrid

Madrid is Spain's biggest city and has an illustrious association with the beautiful game.

The Spanish capital is home to just over 3m people, most of whom support local giants Real and Atletico. However, there are a number of other decent-sized Primera Liga teams in the city and a whole host of non-league clubs - meaning there's some great grounds to visit.

Map of football stadiums in Madrid


Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Real Madrid)

Real Madrid's famous Estadio Santiago Bernabeu
Santiago Bernabeu - the biggest and most famous football stadium in Madrid

The Bernabeu has been home to Real Madrid since 1947. Its capacity of 81,044 makes it the 2nd biggest stadium in Spain (some 20,000 seats smaller than Barcelona's Nou Camp).

The record attendance is a whopping 129,690 set for a European Cup tie against AC Milan in 1956. This still stands as one of the biggest attendances ever recorded.

There are plans to renovate the stadium which include the addition of a roof and 360-degree screen as well as a shopping centre, restaurants and hotel - with some rooms having a view of the pitch. Strangely, the capacity will remain unchanged.

The €525m project is due to start in 2019 and take 3.5 years to complete. Improved wifi will better connect fans to the outside world, meaning the gamblers amongst us who can take advantage of enhanced odds and in-play betting through websites such as omegatipsters.

Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Atletico Madrid)

Atletico Madrid's new Estadio Wanda Metropolitano
Madrid' newest stadium - Atleti's Wanda Metropolitano

Atletico Madrid moved into the Wanda Metropolitano at the start of the 2017/2018 season.

The stadium is actually almost 30 years old, having being originally built for the 1997 World Atletics Championships. Madrid's failed bid for the 2016 Olympics saw the land sold to Atletico who knocked the old stadium down and spent €240m building the new 67,829 venue.

The ultra-modern stadium is a big change for Atleti's former home, the Vicente Calderon which the club called home for 50 years. The old stadium is due to be demolished in 2019.

Beyond Madrid's "big 2"

Whilst it's easy to focus on Madrid's 2 mega clubs, there are a number of smaller, yet successful teams located in the Spanish capital...


Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe)

Getafe's Coliseum Alfonso Perez
The Coliseum Alfonso Perez - home of Getafe

Getafe have played in the Alfonso Perez since it was built in 1998. Located to the south of the city, it has a capacity of 17,393 yet is usually only half full, despite Getafe being a relatively permanent fixture in La Liga in recent years.

Coliseum Alfonso Perez 14,400 capacity • 600 visits logged •


Campo de Futbol de Vallecas (Rayo Vallecano)

Rayos Vallecano's Campo del Futbol de Vallecas
Campo de Futbol de Vallecas - home of Rayo Vallecano

Located a couple of miles south east of the city centre, Rayo's 14,505 capacity home was closed in 2018 as the local council judged the stadium to be unsafe.

This also wins our award for Most Boring Stadium Name in the City of Madrid, but there are a couple of interesting facts that might just make it worth a visit...

The Vallecas was actually Atletico's temporary home for four years in the early 1940s after their stadium at the time was destroyed in the Spanish Civil War.

It also hosted a Queen concert in 1986, which was one of the last ones with the original band members (3rd from last if you really needed to know).

And if that wasn't enough... the basement of the Campo de Futbol de Vallecas is home to the Chess Federation of Madrid.

Campo de Futbol de Vallecas 14,708 capacity • 645 visits logged •


Municipal de Butarque (Leganes)

Leganes' Municipal de Bartarque
Municipal de Butarque - home of Leganes

CD Leganes' Municipal de Batarque has been the club's home since the stadium was built in 1998 (the same year as Getafe's ground - the last 90s evidently being a boom time for Madrid stadium contractors).

The original capacity of 8,138 was expanded to 10,954 following Leganes' promotion to La Liga in 2016. It was soon expanded to 12,450 with Leganes successfully retaining their La Liga status.

Municipal de Butarque 12,450 capacity • 211 visits logged •

Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo (Alcoron)

Alcorcon's Municipal de Santo Domingo
Municipal de Santo Domingo - home of Alcorcon

Alcoron's Santo Domingo stadium is located around 12 miles to the south west of Madrid. The 7,000 seater stadium was first opened in 1999 and has seen Alcoron promoted from Spain's regional leagues through to the Segunda B (3rd tier) and Segunda division (2nd tier).

Municipal de Santo Domingo 5,100 capacity • 98 visits logged •
