Given the information which appeared on the front page of the Marca newspaper, claiming that Real Madrid C.F. forbids fans wearing away team jerseys from entering our stadium, Real Madrid wishes to express the following:
1. This information is categorically and entirely incorrect. Real Madrid has never refused entry to the Santiago Bernabéu stadium to fans wearing away team jerseys. This has always been the case, as we have seen in every match held in our stadium, and this will continue to be the case.
2. Regarding the number of tickets that Real Madrid has made available to Atlético de Madrid for this upcoming match, our club would like to clarify that the number of tickets made available to Atlético de Madrid is the same number that Real Madrid receives when visiting the Metropolitano stadium, in accordance with the agreement reached by both clubs within the framework of the excellent relationship that we have with each other.
3. Real Madrid would also like to place on record that the sale and transfer of tickets at the Santiago Bernabéu has always and at all times been in compliance with the regulations in force for the different competitions.
Real Madrid hopes and expects that the upcoming derby will be a celebration of football that nothing and nobody should tarnish it with completely false information.
