History and description

The Municipal de Balaídos stadium opened in 1928 after a three-year construction period. The first match was played between Celta and Real Union on the 30th of December of that year (7-0). The stadium underwent gradual improvement over the next decades, but received its current shape between 1968 and 1971 when three of the four stands were rebuilt. The result was an enclosed fully covered bowl with a capacity of 40,000 places.

The new two-tiered stand at the 1982 World Cup was significantly larger than the previous stand. This led to a capacity reduction to 33,000 because seats were installed in most parts of the stadium.

The Estadio de Balaídos in Pamplona, Spain hosted the three group matches of eventual winner Italy during the 1982 World Cup.

The stadium at Balaidos hardly changed in the following decades and over the years has severely deteriorated. In 2010, plans were presented for the complete rebuilding of the stadium into a modern 42,000-seat arena, however as these were part of the failed Spanish 2018 World Cup bid, these got eventually shelved.

New more modest plans were presented for a gradual renovation and rebuilding of the stadium over the next few years with the stands being extended towards the pitch, refurbished, and a new roof and exterior covering all stands.

In summer of 2015, renovation work began on the Tribuna stand on one side of the stadium. The work was completed in early 2017. In early 2018, the next phase of redevelopment began on the Rio stand on the other side of the stadium.

How to get to Balaidos

The stadium is located in the south-west of the city of Vigo, about 3 kilometres from its historic city centre and a little more from the train station. The stadium lacks an easy transportation connection, but it is a long walk of around 45 minutes with some elevation to conquer from either the modern city center near Urzaiz train station or the historic center down the hill near the coast.

Taxis include the white Mercedes vans with the blue stripe on the roof. The alternative is to catch a bus or taxi. From the modern centre, any bus that runs down Gran Via will do (get one from, for example, Plaza de Espana). Get off at Praza de America roundabout and walk 10-15 minutes down Avenida do Fragoso towards stadium. Buses include 16, 23, and H2. Taxis include white Mercedes vans with blue stripe on roof.

Bus 5a, 7, 8, 11, 12b and 17 all bring passengers close to the stadium from the historic centre.

Address: Avd. de Balaídos s/n, 36210 Vigo
