It is very popular that Football teams are known by nicknames; this is why Valencia C.F. are also called the ‘che club’.

Some people could think that this tradition comes from Argentina or Uruguay –they use the Word ‘che’ very often-, but in Valencia they have also been using it since centuries. In Valencian/Catalan, ‘Che’ or ‘xe’ is a colloquial slang used in a vocative sense as “friend”.

Valencia C.F. are known as ‘che’ because this is the best word to define the team and everything related to the club. Che team, che fans, che stadium… Che means Valencia!

Now you know the point: ‘che’ is not only Argentinian or Uruguayan, but also Valencian!

Atletico Madrid will leave the legendary Vicente Calderon Stadium to play at the Estadio Olímpico de Madrid (Olympic Stadium of Madrid), commonly known as La Peineta.

The Estadio Olímpico de Madrid was inaugurated in 1994 to hold athletic events. With a capacity for 20,000 spectators, then became a multipurpose stadium.

It was in the year 2008 when the stadium became Atletico Madrid property and the club decided that La Peineta would become their club’s new home. The idea was that the club would move there in the season 2012.2013, but this has not still happened.

In September 2013 the city of Madrid was not chosen to hold the Olympic Games in 2020 so this changed plans. For example, the running track surrounding the pitch was not built eventually.

After this it was decided that La Peineta Stadium will only be exclusive for Atletico Madrid. The stadium will have a capacity for 73,000 spectators, 18,000 more seats than the vicente Calderon. The club will move to the stadium in July 2016.

The current Valencia CF stadium is Mestalla, located among the Aragon Avenue and the Sweden Avenue in the city of Valencia.

A few years ago the club decided to change their stadium, as Mestalla has been used since its opening in 1,923. The new Valencia Stadium has no official name, but it is commonly known as Nou Mestalla (New Mestalla). Its construction began in August 2007, and the stadium was supposed to be totally built in the summer of 2009. However, the works of the Nou Mestalla have not already been finished, so the stadium is still far from being inaugurated.

What will the Nou Mestalla, the new Valencia Stadium, offer?

Capacity for 75,100 spectators

132 private boxes

Grandstand for 1,500 spectators

Honor hall for 150 people

Restaurant of 3,000 m2 with pitch views.

The new Valencia CF Stadium is supposed to become one of the newest and most innovative football stadiums in Europe. For the time being, though, we still have to wait until the end of its construction.
