Estadio Wanda Metropolitano History
The stadium originally opened in 1994 when it was known as the Madrid Community Stadium. Built as part of an unsuccesfuly bid to host the 1997 World Athletics Championships, the stadium has arguably been a “white elephant” since opening with the city of Madrid keeen to ensure the stadium wasn’t a wasted contrusction.
Having been rennovated at a cost of over €240 million in 2017 it’s highly unlikely there will be developments for the forseeable future.
Atleti’s previous home of Estadio Vicente Calderon capacity only held 55,000 whereas their new ground hosts 68,000 plus, which suggests limited appetitire to expand any areas.
