Diario AS (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈdjaɾjo ˈas]) (sometime stylized as AS or As; Spanish pronunciation: [ˈas]) is a Spanish daily sports newspaper that concentrates particularly on football.


Diario AS is part of PRISA which also owns El País and Cinco Días.[1] The paper particularly covers news of the Community of Madrid football teams: Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Getafe CF, CD Leganés, and Rayo Vallecano. 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 offering original journalism and articles translated from the original Spanish by native English-language speakers, as well as their own content. The circulation of Diario AS was 181,172 copies in 2001[2] and 176,892 copies in 2002.[3] It rose to 214,654 copies in 2006.[4]
