Atlético fans collect their old seats from the Calderón

True to their word, Atlético kept the old plastic seats from the Vicente Calderón for season ticket holders who were able to collect them personally on Monday.

As promised back in May last year, Atlético reserved all of the seating requested by season ticket holders who were able to pick up their old seats from the Vicente Calderón to keep, free of charge. Fans queued up outside the stadium on Monday to receive their former seats which have been boxed up for those who requested them online through the club's website. The seats even came with a certificate of authenticity. "If you're an Atlético, you'll know what it means to have the seat you sat on, season after season, watching the team here", said one fan.

The Calderón is awaiting demolition but work won't begin this summer because the club has not yet requested a license to knock the structure down - the club still uses offices at the ground, despite having their new base in the north east end of the city at the Wanda Metropolitano. "It's a shame that they'll be knocking this down," another fan said. "The Calderón will always be our home".
