Atlético announce club has reached 60,000 members
On Tuesday, Atlético Madrid proudly announced the club has reached the milestone of 60,000 members.
As an institution there are still several things for Atlético to improve, but clearly the club’s sportive success has generated an even larger fan base both in and outside of Spain.
More and more Rojiblanco fans are proud to represent the club and have signed on to become a socio, an official member of the club.
Nearly 48,000 season ticket holders automatically qualify as club members, while over 12,000 fans proudly represent the red and white stripes even if they don’t regularly attend games. Among those are the 145 socios outside Spanish borders, although if it’s up to us that is a number that should increase since we know how many of you are passionate Atlético supporters.
