Carrera de San Silvestre
In Madrid, football fans can live their dream by walking on the turf of a legendary football pitch, visiting the changing rooms, and sitting on the bench as though you were about to manage a game. You can do all this in the stadium of the Real Madrid football club, where other options include witnessing spectacular matches, visiting the trophy rooms and enjoying a meal overlooking the pitch. Madrid’s other team, the Atlético de Madrid, is also a fixture at international competitions and is well-known for its performance in several thrilling matches. However, football isn't everything. There are other unmissable events such as the Madrid Tennis Open where you can see the world’s best players in action. The city is also home to two famous athletics events, the Marathon and the San Silvestre race. Just another example of Madrid's wholehearted commitment to sport.
