The story of the Altético Madrid stadium stars in 1966, at the time it was inaugurated. The importance of its construction is related to the fact that it was the first stadium in Europe with seats for everyone. The name of the stadium changed to Calderon stadium in 1971, after the former president of the club Vicente Calderón.
