 The ghost story of Atletico Madrid: 16 days of temporary disappearance of the 1 million Owanda Stadium


Atletico Madrids earnings from hosting the Champions League final are around 1 million euros. From May 20 to June 5, UEFA will have exclusive access to Atletico Madrid. According to the rules of UEFA, only the logo of UEFA advertisers will appear in the final of the Champions League, while the word Wanda outside the stadium is considered as a commercial advertisement by UEFA.

Under such circumstances, UEFA does not allow the word Wanda to appear outside the court. Uefas approach is to block the word Wanda with the words Champions League Final. As a result, the name of Atletico Madrids home stadium has changed from Wanda Metropolitan Stadium to Metropolitan Stadium temporarily.

The bond between Wanda and Atletico Madrid began with Wang Jianlins equity. In January 2015, Wang Jianlin bought a 20% stake in Atletico Madrid for 45 million. The new home of Atletico Madrid was also named Wanda Metropolitan Stadium. But as Wanda Group tightened its overseas investment, Wang Jianlin sold all his stake in Atletico Madrid in early 2018.

In addition to renaming Atletico Madrids home, UEFA will also carry out a series of modifications and adjustments to Atletico Madrids home. The press gallery will be expanded to 1500 people, and cameras will be installed and adjusted in three or four days to ensure that every corner of the venue can be photographed. The courtside will be equipped with huge microphones to collect sound, and the parking lot will be expanded from 6,000 square meters to 13,000 square meters.
