Atletico Madrid, much like Manchester City, represent the complete opposite of Real Madrid in more ways than one, with their home, the 55,000 seat Vicente Calderon, situated astride a motorway in the more industrial southern part of the city. If Real Madrid are not playing at home, this is a good option to see a premier league team during your sports tour to Madrid.
Their fans proudly sport T-shirts bearing the logo "Anti-Madridistas" and they offer a livlier atmosphere than their wealthier neighbours. The nine times Spanish champions do not have as many well-known names as Real, but it is definately worth a visit during your team tour to Madrid.
