Madrid Stadiums Overview

Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas - Bullring | Concert Venue in Madrid

When talking about stadiums in Madrid, the first one on most locals’ lips will invariably be the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. The home stadium for Real Madrid – arguably the most popular soccer club on the planet – Estadio Bernabéu has been packing in tens of thousands of rowdy spectators since first opening way back in the 1940s.

The other major player in Madrid’s devotion to soccer is Vicente Calderón Stadium, which gives fans of Atlético Madrid soccer a place to roost and also acts as a major concert hall throughout the year. In 2015, Calderón will be replaced by Estadio La Peineta, which will greatly expand the seating capacity for Atlético Madrid followers.

Plaza de Las Ventas also acts as a concert stadium when it’s not being used for its primary and most famous purpose, which is to host major bullfights much as it has since 1931. Multiuse Madrid stadium Palacio de los Deportes is a great place to catch popular Spanish singers and a little Madrid basketball, while La Caja Mágica packs in tennis fans from all over the country for the Madrid Masters. Madrid Rockódromo Arena, as its name might suggest, is known to host a rock concert or two, but this versatile Madrid stadium also hosts trade shows and a variety of special events throughout the year.

Whether you’re looking for soccer, music, bull’s blood, or basketballs, the Madrid stadiums have it all and more.
