For the first time in years, Atlético have completely renovated the pitch of the Vicente Calderón. It was clear for anyone to see that the pitch was in terrible shape last season, with different coloured patches of grass all over. After a recent Muse-concert in the Vicente Calderón, several parts of the field were damaged, which made the club decide to clear out the current pitch.
The pitch was fully removed, all the way to the drainage system, so that the new turf will gain the necessary strength. The club is confident the pitch will be in perfect condition before the start of the season.
