Although there was no stadium tour available we managed to see the ground from the upstairs Bilbao shop.The workmen are still working on the stadium and it is up there with Barca or Madrid but smaller at 53000+.Reaching this years final of Copa del Rey has given the team and Bilbao a real boost.

The San Mamés is a fantastic new stadium with the stands right on top of the pitch. The people of Bilbao treat Athletic like a religion and it was a great experience to be a part of it. The stadium is in the middle of the city and is an integral part of the city. There is no worries about... More

I visited Bilbao for a Europa League game some weeks ago. This stadium is a real temple of the sport and all the comments I had read about it dont do justice. Integral part of the city and surrounded by bars that ooze passion for their home team, the San Mames is easily accessible and awe inspiring. When the Athletic... More

I am arriving Madrid around 7am on Jan 25 and would like to attend the Athletico Madrid game by 11am. I would like to know which means of transport is fastest and safest to get to the game. Also, where to stay overnight. Thanks

Nice Stadium but as a visitor, inside a net cage, the visibility is bad... Rather have Glass or other solution, but this net is terrible!!!

Having booked my weekend in Bilbao, I hoped to see a game, especially as the hotel I booked was opposite the stadium. I realised quite early that due to ground developments I would not get a ticket for the game against Malaga, but I later found that presumably because of TV the game was switched to Monday. However the disappointing... More

Home to Athletic Bilbao. The stadium tour was very enjoyable and I would recommend it to any football fans visiting the area.

If you are a fan of Athletic then this is no doubt the Holy Grail, for anybody else it is slightly odd: the exhibition is interesting enough but like so many other things in the Basque country it simply ignores the dictatorship and the impact on the club - for instance they were forced to change the club's name at...
