Stadium History

Constructed in 1976, it immediately became the largest stadium in the Alicante province. Just six years after its inauguration, it had the honor of hosting matches during the prestigious World Cup tournament in 1982. This included three group-stage games featuring Belgium, Hungary, and El Salvador. Additionally, the stadium gained nationwide recognition as Spain played five international matches here, with three being official qualifying matches. In 2003, the stadium was the venue for the renowned Copa del Rey final.

Designed by Juan Boix Matarredona, the stadium features two-tiered stands specifically tailored for football. The lower tier can hold 20,653 spectators, while the upper tier offers 15,364 seats. The steep stands provide a more impressive sight than the somewhat unassuming and neglected exterior. Beneath the towering 18-meter structure, you’ll find various amenities such as pubs, restaurants, and discos, as well as essential facilities like club offices and a souvenir shop.
