Atletico Madrid Football Club fundamentals

Origin

Atletico Madrid Football Club, or simply known as Atletico or Atleti, is a Spanish professional football club based in the same city as the neighboring club Real Madrid, hence their names. Atletico were established on 26 April 1903, as Athletic Club Sucursal de Madrid. They are also known under other nicknames in different periods. For example, they were first called Los Colchoneros (The Mattress makers) due to their first team stripes being the same as traditional mattresses.

During the 1970s, they were known as Los Indios (The Indians). There were several stories behind this nickname, including that it referred to their American players' arrivals, or because Los Indios were long considered the biggest enemy of Los Blancos, which is the nickname of Atletico’s city rival, Real Madrid. 

They have changed numerous stadiums since their inception but currently play at Wanda Metropolitano which has a great capacity of 68,475. Diego Simeone has been the manager of Atletico since 2011, and he has just expanded his contract with this club until 2024. Atletico Madrid are playing in red and white vertical striped shirts, which are also featured on their emblem, blue shorts, and blue and red socks.
