Atlético Madrid – Wanda Metropolitano Stadium

Atletico Madrid Logo

Wanda Metropolitano or Estadio Metropolitano has been home field for Atlético Madrid from 16.09.2017. The stadium was completely renovated (built in 1990) and with renovations it has increased capacity from 20.000 to +68k. to be fair Atlético is my favorite team from Spain, so I am a little bias here (but not in FICAZ scoring calculation) toward the team and their stadium and atmosphere and especially toward their home kit.

Atlético Madrid Home kit

When I play FIFA on PlayStation I have been always playing in Atlético Madrid home uniform, they are simple unbelievable cool, especially these Nike style home t-shirts.


There are several variations throughout years, with collar without collar, with blue on the shirt, or red, but all those similar designed kit are great to me. It is important to see those glorious red and white stripes with blue shorts 😎

Camera Angle and Zoom

Atlético Madrid - Main

I remember 1st game, premiere night, opening night at Wanda Metropolitano. I was anxious as always to see  what would be camera angle be here. That is the first thing, always, what I am looking for: main TV camera angle. Zoom is secondary thing for me, always camera angle first, especially after so many years of perfect camera angle from Vicente Calderón Stadium which had been decommissioned. And it was great, the first sights on my TV from Metropolitano were fantastic. High and far. Perfect. Zooming is not perfect but still above the average what you can see in scoring values. Our man “Mr. Glenn Rhee” could do a better job to zoom out a little especially far side, top of the screen criteria which is the lowest score of all scores here on otherwise high scoring FICAZ index score which means fantastic TV expedience on this stadium.

Please don’t complain for Atlético Madrid camera angle 😀.

One note: Interacting with people on twitter I noticed that many people thing that TV broadcasters are responsible for camera angle each stadium, but not actually team, club and stadium. That is not the case, if that was the case, then we would have different camera angle from different TV channels. But is always the same. The conclusion is that main broadcast TV camera is fixed, set, and it is up to stadium and club to move it permanently to another fixed position,
