Estadio Santo Domingo – stadium description
Built west of the centre of Alcorcón, this stadium lies in the suburbs of Madrid, just a stone's throw away from the team's previous home. It's part of the town's main sports precinct. Along both sides of the stadium are two training fields, while the main athletics stadium lies to the south, along with swimming pools and tennis courts.
Initially, upon opening in 1999, the stadium was able to hold 2,800 people. Within a decade, to reward AD Alcorcón's progress, expansion was approved. Envisioned to bring the size up to 5,800, the stadium ended up with 5,100 seats, owing the growth largely to the addition of a second tier atop the east stand.
That phase ended up in 2014. It was planned that both ends also would be expanded to reach the required 8,000 for Spain's second league (with all seats preferably covered), however the plan was put on hold in the end.
Estadio Santo Domingo's regular schedule is filled largely by AD Alcorcón's league and cup fixtures, however it also played host to several internationals. In 2013 Spain and Russia held a U21 friendly here, while in 2015 Spain and Israel contested a qualifying game in American football here.
