The fixtures for the upcoming season have been announced, and Atlético will open the campaign at the Vicente Calderón against Sporting Gijón on 30th August. The game has been pushed back to Monday to give us time to recover from our UEFA Super Cup tie with Inter.
In September we then face Athletic Bilbao away, before welcoming Barcelona to the Calderón for what will be a huge match. We round off the month with games against Valencia (at the Mestalla) and then Zaragoza in Madrid.
The return match against Barcelona at the Camp Nou takes place on the weekend of the 2nd February 2011.
El Derbi Madrileño takes place first at the Bernabeu on the weekend of the 7th November, and then at the Calderón on the 20th March 2011.
With the schedule announced, it’s not too long before the season kicks off! I’m excited, you’re excited and you can bet everyone here at AtléticoFans is excited too! Roll on the new season!
