The Vicente Calderon … like you have never seen him before! Atletico Madrid's half-ruined, iconic stadium becomes part of a large street where cars race across the field
- Atletico Madrid has moved out of the old stadium in the summer of 2017
- They left Vicente Calderon, the ground they had called home since 1966
- Now in the Wanda Metropolitano the old stadium is finally demolished
- The material shows the M30 road that runs through and around the stadium
A time-lapse of the Spanish newspaper Marca shows vehicles racing around the remains of the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid.
The demolition of the old Atletico Madrid stadium began last week and is expected to be completed in December.
The M30 in Madrid had been closed in recent weeks, but was reopened so that road users can use it again.

The road still leads through the old grandstand, but the M30 now cuts in where the field was
The cost of demolishing the old site of Atletico Madrid has so far reached 40 million pounds
The footage now shows the road that leads not only through the old grandstand where she has always done, but also around the front of the stadium as it disassembles the playing field.
Work on dismantling the grandstand begins on 15 November.
The cost of demolishing the land, which Atleti has used since 1966 to 2017, has been estimated at around £ 40m.
They have been in the Wanda Metropolitano since the beginning of the 2017/18 season.
That's what the old Atletico Madrid stadium looked like before the bulldozers arrived
Many in the social media want the main stand to be preserved as it resembles the club's story.
"Should just stand there," one fan wrote, while another added, "So sad, that was a beautiful stadium."
"Beautiful stadium," wrote another. "You should leave that there as a memorial to a cathedral of football."
