It was an unclear one, and a big step. The arena is still unfinished -- indoors and outside wires hang unconnected, painting isn't yet done, trees are unplanted, taped-up print-outs behave as signals, and dust out of the construction work lingers, while the access from the M40 motorway that borders it to one side have never been built. Car parks were complete -- although at $300, season tickets there cost and many come by subway. The travel chaos feared didn't happen, not least because fans came early, invited to do so by actions. There were two hours that are happy and enthusiast zones, music and castles. And Saturday comes.
There are plaques dedicated. Fans seek out Luis Aragonés, Kiko, and Simeone Garate. They seek out defector Hugo placing stickers over the top and scuffing at it. White and Red, the flag in Spain flies out. The doors open at 7 pm, an hour and 45 minutes before kick-off, as well as the impacts that are interior, although it's not an arena outside. It's genuinely spectacular: enormous, steep and high. The radios are in early and they are getting emotional. There's an homage to their houses pre-game. The playlist in the stadium is the same as was in the 80s rock.  judi bola

Down in the tube, players venture out to heat up. There's a roar when they move out. The anthem is played, when they return for the match. They are almost ready. The match ball was brought in by parachute. As does the Spain flag an Atlético flag follows. There's a minute's applause for the club member No1. Garate, Torres -- performs the kickoff -- kept a secret and Hugo was named by a youth teamer. Past, future and present. "I will never forget it: it is an honor to be with José Eulogio and a child who we expect has a terrific future," Torres says. He's not a beginner but eight Atlético products that are youth-team are, three of them. And then the game starts. It is not good: however impressive the stadium the day, it versus Málaga per week. On the eve of the match, Saúl had stated: "I hope it is a canterano who scores the first aim. It happens not the way they hoped.

While the first shot on goal is from the Borja Bastón of Málaga the is for the foul from Koke, Roberto, and the shot from Saúl. They all are Atlético canteranos, products that are youth-team. But Atlético does not have a shot on goal until one hour and the minute in, it. "New stadium, same soccer," El País writes the following day. The noise drops, there is a lull. Some of them. In the Calderón also, there were lulls for all that it's true, and the legend, times when it went silent there as it does here. In the other, the songs from 1 and do catch on at the location. The sound does not always reach them, some say afterward; it is not easy when you can not make out the tune to sing along.

It was Friday evening northeast of the capital before their opening night and one question was resolved. "The most important issue is the 3 factors," Someone said shortly after, but that smile underlined that he understood better than anyone that really was not correct. "You try to concentrate on work but it is not simple: We are all human," he admitted the next night. "When you get to the stadium, however much you tell yourself 'do not look, do not feel, do not watch, do not gaze about', you do it." Everybody did -- from the minute they arrived on Saturday. After 50 years in the Vicente Calderón, Atlético had a brand new arena.
Even though the fear was as inevitable as it was natural, they were excited for certain.

He struck at the ball not. There was much to cheer and, nearly completed, at last, he was cheering all right: about the escalators from the new metro station alongside, the acoustics, the design, the color, the relaxation: "The chairs, please! They are lovely for people of terrific weight!" An enormous concrete bowl close to Barajas airport, using a whirlpool roof and red chairs, somewhat like Wembley, the Emirates or San Mamés, Cerezo insisted: "On the outside, it is fair, on the inside it is the company." However, some asked, would it be? The Calderón was 13,000 seats smaller and crumbling, a wreck, but it suited and it would be missed by them. Here they are within a plot of no man's land 20km at a stadium, from home.  agen sbobet terpercaya

Not Wanda. The Chinese shareholders and investors of Atlético supplied half of the name; the other half was provided by its history. The Wanda Metropolitano is named after the scene before they moved into the Atlético had. Aware of the feeling of rootlessness the move could provoke, there was a conscious attempt to adopt their background, recreate community and to create continuity. To make it fun. And fans have reacted: seats haven't meant chairs that were empty. Season-ticket earnings have improved and the launching games have sold out. It was clear from the struggle to keep their player's players were renewed although provides came to get a dozen footballers, none were approved. It was significant, although it came at a price and a major one. It's no great moving into a house that is new rather than taking everyone. Weaken the group and enhance the stadium does not work. Less in the debut season, where there's anticipation in addition to anxiety.

There are worries over the effect and the practicalities. What has presented as effectively a 'free' arena, rebuilding and Atlético taking the stadium earmarked for three failed bids in return for their location, has cost them $170m and the $140m worth of the Calderón website. Since it began in 2008 prices have grown; they had a loan to keep going. And maintaining the demands on them have increased that Champions League qualification isn't an objective, it is an obligation. However, Cerezo says that it's a step into a new age, and it will be covered in seven or eight decades.
