Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, the 6th largest stadium in Europe, has a grandeur and presence that demands your attention. From the outside you can tell it is going to be special; it is only when you step into the arena that you understand what all the fuss was about – stunning!
The year 2017 marked the long-awaited and emotional confirmation of Madrid’s Metropolitano Stadium, a historical moment in the Spanish Football club’s history.
Espanyol have always been FC Barcelona’s rivals, since being formed in 1900. In Franco’s era, the Catalan capital’s second side were viewed as being more in league with him than the Blaugrana were. To this day, Spain flags are waved in the stadium. The ground itself is new, with Espanyol starting to play there in the 2009-10 season onwards.
