Atletico Madrid Photos

Atletico Madrid photos taken during matchday 11 at home to Villareal in La Liga. This was four days after a 4-3 victory over Sevilla FC and with Atletico Madrid finally having moved up to third in the table.

Atleti being Atleti they promptly went and lost the game against Villareal 3-4 despite being 2-0 up in the first 20 minutes and having a capacity crowd. For good measure Atletico Madrid also missed a penalty at the start of the second half!!!

Is it really that suprising that Atletico fans are known throughout Spain as "los suffredores" ,the sufferers!!!

Pre Match:

Assuming that no one really needs to know about the Pre Pre match bars the logical place to start this Atletico Madrid photos gallery is setting the scene and building the atmosphere.

With a capacity crowd expected its best to visit the Atletico Madrid superstore (located underneath the uncovered side of the Vicente Calderon ).

Of course there are always the independent stalls selling both official and unofficial Atletico Madrid merchandise for those who want to save a few euros. The selection of memrobilia here is far wider than that of the stores and represents a wider range of clubs. This is also the place if you want an anti Real Madrid T shirt, flag, banner or Scarf. Scarves start at 8€ and go up to 20€ with T shirts, polo shirts etc starting around the 10€ mark.

On the other hand the famous Fondo Sur, southern end of the ground is home to the Frente Atleti or "Ultras" as they are sometimes known. These are the most passionate of Atletico Madrid supporters and start the majority of songs and chants.

The "frente atleti" also create banners and displays for important matches as well as, on average, half of the home games. 1982 refers to the inception of these supporters as an organised group instead of different factions.
