there's an agreement between the city council and the team so they will move to the new stadium in 3 years (2010).Vicente Calderón stadium will be demolished

announced capacity:73.000

here's a video of the development

Nice stadium. At first I was shocked to see the athletic tracks, but they can be removed for a football game :)
Do you know when the construction works for the expansion will start?
And where is it located?

Can someone explain to me why Atletico Madrid need a 73k capacity stadium? Arsenal, a considerably more popular team in a city (London) 3-4 times bigger than Madrid build a 60k venue.

In Spain they don't build stadiums that sell out each weak. Espanyol is building a 40k stadium and they average about 20'000. Mallorca and Levante also have plans for 40k stadiums and they are even below 20k atm. Why they are building that big stadiums I don't know, they are probably speculating for a more successful future.
I think 73k is definately too big for Atletico, but you should not underestimate them, they have nearly 45'000 season ticket holders atm.

with a modern stadium the average will rise to 50.000-55.000 IMO

But Arsenal isnt the only team in London.
There are so many clubs in London, on the other hand Madrid only has two big ones.
Also the construction costs in Spain are far cheaper than in Britain.

I wouldn't be so sure. When I got infos from the Madrid committee for 2012 they gave me the athletic capacity of 66k. So I think 73k is afterwards.

Thanks
I thought that the Olympic stadium has to be +80.000, but Atens was even smaller.

Will the stadium have athletic tracks until 2016 and get rid of them afterwards or can they always change between the two version like Wembley, Stade de France etc?
the stadium won't have tracks.if you watch the video you can see there will be a tier.that tier can be changed for athletic tracks

I tried to find something on this but it looks not reversible. A question is where will Atletico play during the remodeling process as Vicente Calderón is supposed to be demolished.
Vicente Calderón won't be demolished until the team moves to the new stadium

here's a bigger video of the stadium

Yep, you're right. But from what I've read they want to move already in 2012. And the remodeling to a football-specific stadium is to take part after 2016 Olympics. So... the question comes back again.

Atletico sells out all it´s ´subscriptions´ every year. So I expact they expact they can sell more in a bigger stadium.
Still think it´s a shame though. The Vicente Calderon for me is a special stadium.
