Atletico Madrid FC plays by royal appointment – almost
King Felipe VI is the honorary president of the club, which gives you an indication of its importance to the country’s footballing legacy. The club was born in 1903 and was closely associated with Athletic Bilbao in its early years, being started as the club’s youth team, and it originally included a few renegades from Real Madrid. It was only in 1941 that Atletico Madrid took on its own independent identity as a club. They had already won several major titles and league championships by then but would go on to amass over 10 La Liga championships, lift the Copa Del Rey at least 10 times and win more than five European titles between 1939 and 2021.
Hit the mattress with Atletico Madrid FC match tickets
The team’s nickname is “The Mattresses”, which has to be one of the most obtuse names in all of football. It’s simply due to their red-and-white striped kit resembling old Spanish mattresses. There is some controversy over the exact origin of their strip. What is true is that the club originally bought their shirts from Blackburn Rovers, but on one trip the buyer couldn’t find any, so picked up a bunch of Southampton jerseys on the way back to Spain. Others still maintain that the shirts were made with unused surplus cloth from mattress-making factories. In the 1970s, they also became known as Los Indios (The Indians), with one theory being that this was because Los Indios are the traditional Wild West enemy of Los Blancos (The Whites) – the nickname of Real Madrid. It all adds to the club’s rich history and folklore. This aside, the team remains one of the most exciting to watch in top-flight Spanish football. Their home ground is at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, so if you find yourself in Madrid and want your football fix, simply log on and buy your Atletico Madrid FC tickets on StubHub.
