Outside the glamour and the attention of the great teams of the capital, we find one of the most peculiar clubs that there is not only in Madrid but in all Spain, Rayo Vallecano.
Located in the southwest of the city, Vallecas is a proud working-class neighbourhood, aware of many social causes and one of the first teams to create a women’s section. Rayo Vallecano is attached to its people and is proud of its values, which is why living a match in its small but noisy stadium of only three stands is quite an adventure.
A neighbourhood team, but names such as former Madrid players Laurie Cunningham and Hugo Sánchez, Toni Polster, Wilfred Agbonavbare, Guilherme and the current Atletico de Madrid striker Diego Costa.
The matchday experience will begin by meeting at the central station of Atocha, and from there, we will take the underground to Vallecas where we will enjoy the pre-match atmosphere in the surroundings of the stadium. I’ll show you the graffitis of the stadium and have a few “cañas” to get to know each other a little bit better and tell you some anecdotes about Rayo Vallecano, all of this before entering the stadium to start enjoying an experience different from the others.
By the way, I’m from Vallecas so…I can’t wait to show you all of this!
