History and description

The first reference to Estadio El Molinón was made in May 1908, though it is likely that football had been played at the site before. According to a newspaper report, a match was played between La Bella Sportiva and El Balón at Estadio El Molinón in May 1908. With time, the stadium gradually lost its popularity and was eventually closed in 1973. Real Sporting moved into El Molinón in 1916 and one year later the stadium received its first redevelopment when a new grand stand was built. In 1926, the stadium could hold about 6,000 spectators. However, as time went on and the stadium lost its popularity, it was eventually closed in 1973.

In 1931, a fire destroyed the grandstand at the club. It brought the club in serious financial troubles, and it took until 1942 for the stand to be rebuilt.

In 1969, the Estadio El Molinón underwent a full cover policy, and one year later a new main stand opened.

The stadium underwent a major redevelopment before the 1982 World Cup, increasing its capacity to 45,000. Of these seats, 16,600 are in El Molinón. During the World Cup, El Molinón hosted three group matches, all involving West Germany.

The stadium was converted into an all-seater in 1997, reducing its capacity to just under 26,000 seats.

After a decade of renovation, El Molinón underwent another round of construction in 2013, including the construction of a new north stand, refurbishment of the other stands and the interior of the stadium, as well as a new exterior. The capacity was also marginally increased.

How to get to El Molinon

The Estadio El Molinon is located about 2 kilometers east of Gijón's historic city center, and about 3.5 kilometers from the city's main train station. The stadium is located 500 meters away from San Lorenzo beach, the most popular beach in Gijón, with only the city's main park, Parque Isabel La Católica, separating the two.

One can take bus 1 or 10 from the historic city centre to the stadium. From stop FEVE or Gota de Leche (in the centre), one can take bus 1 in the direction of Hospital de Cabueñes. Get off at stop Las Mestes. The journey takes about 11 minutes.

From Plaza de Carmen, take bus 10 to Pumarín-Candenal. Again, get off at stop Las Mestes. The journey takes about 20 minutes.

From the main train station, one can (1) walk 10 minutes to stop Gota de Leche, or (2) take bus 18 to Hospital de Cabueñes and get off at stop Plaza de Toros. From there, it is a 10-minute walk to the stadium.

All buses go at least every 20 minutes.

Address: Paseo Isabel La Católica s/n, 33203 Gijón

Sporting Gijon Tickets

Tickets for sporting events can be bought online, at the ticket windows of the stadium, or at the official club store on Calle San Bernardo 20 (right in the city centre). The ticket windows are open on the day of the match. As Sporting occasionally sells out, it is advised to buy tickets in advance for high-profile matches.

The ticket prices for matches depend on the opponent. For low-profile matches they can start at ?15.00 for a seat behind the goal and range up to ?40.00 for a seat at the main stand, but for most matches tickets will start at either ?20.00 or ?30.00. However, expect to pay at least ?70.00 for the top matches against Barcelona and Madrid.

Relevant Internet links

The official website of Real Sporting de Gijón, as well as the tourism portal of the city of Gijón, offer information on public transport in the city. Karl Carroll wrote on March 21, 2017 at 8:56 p.m.: The team is back in La Liga Primera, and usually it sells out. I believe that not all seats are sold, but on match day there will be a slim pickings. Prices to my knowledge are now 40 euros for a good seat and can also be purchased online, but only up to two weeks in advance. It is a real nuisance and it harms the sales instead of improving them.

. Despite being a bit out of date, the team is back in La Liga Primera and usually sells out. It's not always easy to find tickets on match day, but it will be scarce.

Prices for good seats at the theater have, in my opinion, increased by 40 percent in the last year. The availability of these seats online only a few weeks in advance is also extremely frustrating, and it actually harms theater attendance.
