Club Atlético de Madrid, SAD (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈkluβ aðˈletiko ðe maˈðɾið]), commonly known as Atlético de Madrid or Atlético, is a Spanish professional football club based in Madrid that plays in La Liga, where they are the current champions. The club co-owns the Indian Super League franchise of Kolkata, named Atletico de Kolkata.

The club play their home games at the Vicente Calderón, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. In 2016, Atletico are due to move to their new home of Estadio La Peineta, which will have a capacity of 70,000.
Atletico's home kit is red and white vertical striped shirts, with blue shorts, accompanied by blue and red socks. This combination has been used since 1911. The current club kits are manufactured by Nike and sponsored by Azerbaijan.
During their history, the club has been known by a number of nicknames, including Los Colchoneros ("The Mattress Makers" in English), due to their first team stripes being the same colours as old-fashioned mattresses. During the 1970s, they became known as Los Indios, allegedly due to the club signing several South American players after the restrictions on signing foreign players was lifted. However, there are a number of alternative theories which claim they were named so because their stadium is "camped" on the river bank, or because Los Indios (The Indians) were the traditional enemy of Los Blancos (The Whites), which is the nickname of the club's city rivals, Real Madrid.
