Estadio El Arcángel – stadium description

For 39 consecutive seasons have Córdoba CF played at Estadio Arcángel. This changed in 1993, when new stadium – adequately named Estadio Nuevo  Arcángel – opened just 500 meters from the old one. Initially an athletics stadium for some 15,000 people, it offered poor sightlines and quite some distance from the pitch. This is why authorities decided to remodel it completely quite soon.

In 2005 works commenced on eastern stand, opposite the main one. A new structure with 2 tiers and 8,000 seats was raised, integrated with an 8-floor building planned for office space. This building stands unfinished and empty to date, however. In 2007 work started on northern end, slightly lower than the eastern one. Ready by 2008 it was followed by almost identical construction in the south, to be ready in 2013. When finished the ground will have 25,000.
