Estadio CAP – stadium description

Sports complex was created near the top of the Hill in Huachipato district in 1961. It comprised primarily of a multi-use stadium with football and athletics facilities. It was also joined by a secondary stadium for football and several tennis courts. Contrary to most stadia in Chile, this one was acquired by private owners, CAP Acero, local steel manufacturer.

It was CAP who financed the complete reconstruction in 2008-2009. It saw reconfiguration to a rectangular layout with corners left unoccupied. At a cost of $11 million it received over 10,000 seats, including premium boxes in the west. The western grandstand also holds majority of required infrastructure, though part of the tennis facilities were sacrificed to fit everything.

At the time of opening it was among the best stadiums in Chile and remains among top football-specific venues despite many projects carried out across the country.
