Atletico Madrid confirm that fans will have the chance to keep seats from the Vicente Calderon when the ground closes next month.

Atletico Madrid have confirmed that fans will be able to take seats from the Vicente Calderon stadium as souvenirs at the end of the season.

After Los Rojiblancos' Champions League exit at the hands of city rivals Real Madrid, some supporters were seen removing seats as a memento.

However, with the club still to host their final league match, the Copa del Rey final and a number of concerts at the ground, Atleti have decided that fans can register for their own piece of history rather than rip it out themselves.

Atletico hope that the measure will stop supporters from ripping up seats after the final La Liga fixture against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

Los Rojiblancos will move into their new stadium, the Wanda-Metropolitano, at the start of next season.
