Visit Mallorca Estadi – construction description

How is the RCD Mallorca stadium going to be redeveloped?

You can see the concept for the redevelopment of Visit Mallorca Estadi on a separate subpage

The design for the redevelopment of the largest stadium in the Balearic Islands was prepared by the Izaskun Larzabal architectural studio. The concept involves the removal of the athletics track and the construction of new sections of stands in its place. This will create a new lower level of spectators around the pitch, with the first rows much closer to the playing field. In addition, a canopy is to be built over the upper part of the eastern stand, and the removed arches will be replaced by additional usable space.

The plan is to be implemented in four phases, stand by stand, while maintaining the functionality of the facility. The first to be rebuilt will be the east stand, followed by work on the stand behind the north goal, then the main (west) stand and finally the south one. The redevelopment is to be carried out between 2022 and 2024. The modernisation was expected to cost the club €21m (in the end, the costs rose to €24m plus an additional €5m for equipment). After the redevelopment, the capacity of the stadium will increase by around 3,000 seats, to 26,020 spectators.

How is the redevelopment of Visit Mallorca Estadi progressing?

The ceremonial start of the redevelopment took place on May 5, 2022, with the stand on the eastern side being the first to be rebuilt. During the inter-season break, the place of the athletics track was taken by additional rows of spectators, which were already ready for RCD Mallorca's first home game of the new season (August 20, 2022 against Real Betis, 1:2). In the summer of 2022, the temporary stand, previously positioned behind the north goal, was moved to the south side.

At the end of July 2022, the installation of the first roof elements on the east stand also began. In September, the sheathing began to be installed and the roof was completed in mid-October of the same year.

For procedural reasons, the club struggled to obtain permission for subsequent phases of the work. After adjustments were made to the design to take into account safety standards, construction could continue.

Work on the new grandstand behind the north goal began at the end of 2022, and the foundations for the new section of the auditorium in the west stand also began in spring 2023. Both stands were ready to receive spectators for the first home game of the 2023/24 season. The construction of the new stand behind the north goal also included an underground car park and a VIP pavilion, built on top of the new stand.

In the summer of 2023, the temporary stand, which was located behind the south goal for the entire 2022/23 season, was removed. The final phase of the stand redevelopment then began, the construction of a new south stand to accommodate RCD Mallorca's most active supporters. The new south stand (as well as the, as yet incomplete, north-west corner) is expected to open in early 2024.
