Atletico Madrid opened the doors of their stadium on Monday to showcase the ground that will host the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur on June 1st.
The Wanda Metropolitano, called simply the Metropolitano Stadium in UEFA competition, has a capacity of 67,000 and was completed in 2017. On the site where the current stadium sits, there used to be the Madrid... Еще Olympic Stadium, built for Madrid's unsuccessful bid to host the World Athletics Championships in 1997.
The stadium was closed in 2004 and in 2013 Atletico Madrid bought it from the city of Madrid in order to build their new stadium to replace the obsolete Vicente Calderon Stadium.
The 2019 Champions League final is the second final to be hosted there, after the 2018 Copa del Rey final between Sevilla and Barcelona. It will be the fifth time Madrid will host the final of the Champions League.
