The entire redevelopment is expected to be completed in 14 months, four of which will be devoted to drawing up the project plan and 10 months to the entire construction. However, all renovation work will be carried out in such a way as not to affect regular sporting events at the stadium.
Top standards in the Segunda División
Compact Estadio Fernando Torres, with a capacity of 5,400 spectators, is a multi-purpose facility located in Fuenlabrada, which is part of the so-called Community of Madrid, Spain. It is currently used for football matches and is the home stadium of CF Fuenlabrada. Founded in 1975, the team currently plays in the second division of Spanish football called Segunda División.
The expansion works will allow for the installation of new stands to increase the current capacity, while the stadium will also boast extensive facilities to support professional competitions. The press area will be improved and a new lighting system will be installed around the venue to allow the television broadcast of each match according to the parameters set by the federation and the league's technicians.
