Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid, Spain

Metropolitano Stadium (Spanish: Estadio Metropolitano), also referred as Wanda Metropolitano for sponsorship reasons, is a stadium in Madrid, Spain. It has been the home stadium of Atlético Madrid since the 2017–18 season. It is located in Rosas neighbourhood in the San Blas-Canillejas district. The stadium was built as part of Madrid's unsuccessful bid to host the 1997 World Athletics Championships, and was opened on 6 September 1994 by the Community of Madrid. It was closed in 2004 due to the city's bid for the 2016 Olympics. In 2013, it passed into the possession of Atlético Madrid, who played their first game there on 16 September 2017. The stadium had a capacity of 20,000 spectators upon its closure and re-opened with a seating capacity for 67,703. It is set to host the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final. The stadium was formerly known as Estadio de la Comunidad de Madrid (Madrid Community Stadium), Estadio Olímpico de Madrid (Madrid Olympic Stadium), and more commonly by its nickname Estadio de La Peineta (The Comb Stadium). Naming rights were acquired by the Wanda Group, a Chinese real estate company. Due to UEFA sponsorship regulations the stadium is known as Estadio Metropolitano in UEFA marketing materials.
