The red and white fans will enjoy a sports installation that responds to the highest standards of security, visibility, and comfort from September. An entertainment and catering offer meant for the best fans in the world.
The new image, that was announced last December, will help to reinforce the steps ahead taken during the recent years in the institutional and the sports fields. The badge evolves respecting the club's history and supporting our most representative colors.
The Atlético de Madrid is a club proud of its roots. In honor to Madrid, the bear and the strawberry tree are gaining importance and the upper part of the badge is slightly rounded as a gesture to the first emblem of the club.
Today we add one badge to those we've had along our history, but we don't renounce to any of the previous ones. They're equally ours and we're very proud of all of them. The history continues.
From 1903, the club has grown adapting the challenges of each era and evolving with the aim to offer the best results to the atléticos. With a present to feel proud of, the team, the club, and the fans start today a season that will be unforgettable for all.
