The Coliseum Alfonso Pérez was built in 1998 and has become one of the newest stadiums in the Spanish leagues. It holds around 17,500 spectators and the stadium itself is open and modern in design with an stunningly designed arch roof that covers the top tier. The ground is situated in the industrial heartland of Madrid’s southern zone and although a little further out than other top flight grounds in Madrid, links into the city centre by bus or metro are good. Average attendances are around the 9,000 mark so getting a ticket to watch a match here isn’t difficult.

Stadium – Coliseum Alfonso Pérez
Getafe sits in the southern suburbs of Madrid and is not as central as the other stadiums. Having said that, transport links are still excellent and fairly frequent.
Metro – From the city centre you will need to take the dark blue line 10 all the way southbound to the end. Then pick up the Gold line 12 which runs out to the suburb of Getafe. The stop for the stadium is Los Espartales. Come out at ground level and it is a short two minute walk from here.
Bus – the 441, 0r 442 both leave from Atocha bus station in down town Madrid and run out to Getafe and past the stadium itself. The cost is around 2 Euros and the last bus runs at 1.45am
Taxi – If you are planning in staying in Getafe till after 2am, then this is your only option to get back. Cost will be around 20 Euros and again, when coming out of the stadium taxis are waiting, but are on ‘first come first serve’ basis
Walk – In a nutshell…. forget it! At 13kms from the city centre. It’s simply too far.
