Diario AS is a Spanish daily sports newspaper, concentrating particularly on football.


Diario AS is part of PRISA which also owns El Pais and Cinco Días.[1] The paper particularly covers news of the principal Madrid football teams, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid, and therefore, it competes directly with MARCA.

In addition to Madrid, the newspaper also has satellite bureaus in Barcelona, Bilbao, A Coruña, Seville, Valencia and Zaragoza.

In May 2012 the newspaper launched an English language sub-site, AS English, offering articles translated from the original Spanish by a dedicated team of native English-language speakers.

The circulation of Diario AS was 214,654 copies in 2006.[2]
