History and description

The Stadium of Mestalla opened on May 20, 1923 with a friendly between Valencia and Levante. It could initially hold 17,000 fans, but was quickly expanded to a capacity of 25,000. During the Spanish civil war, the stadium served as a concentration camp and junkyard, and as a result it got heavily damaged to the point that not much remained of it after the war.

Mestalla got restored after the war, and it initially remained a modest affair until the club embarked on a grand redevelopment program called "Gran Mestalla?", which involved the construction of a new main stand and the expansion of all other stands. The project was finished in 1955, and Mestalla's capacity was increased to 45,000 places.

In 1957, part of the new stadium collapsed after the river Tùria flooded the city, but it was rebuilt quickly. In 1962, Nottingham Forest was the first foreign team to play at Mestalla.

In 1969, the stadium was renamed to honor former president Luis Casanova. He felt overwhelmed by the honour and asked in 1994 to change the name back to Mestalla.

Valencia considered moving to a new stadium on the edge of the city, but instead decided to redevelop Mestalla, which was necessary as part of preparations for the 1982 World Cup. Works included the reconstruction of the bottom tier, which until then consisted of a brick structure and was replaced by a concrete one.

Mestalla hosted all three first round group matches of the 1982 World Cup.

The stadium remained relatively unchanged for the next fifteen years. It underwent its last redevelopment between 1997 and 2001, when both ends and one side got expanded with an extra tier, and new access towers were built in the corners.

The Estadio de Mestalla still lacks many modern facilities though, and as such Valencia announced plans for a new stadium in the north of the city. Construction of the 75,000-seater started in 2007, but works were halted in early 2009 due to a lack of funding. At present it does not seem likely that these will recommence any time soon.

How to get to Mestalla

The Estadio de Mestalla is located east of Valencia's historic city centre. The walk from the cathedral or the main railway station (Estación del Norte) takes no more than 30 minutes. Alternatively, the stadium can be reached by metro. Metro stop Aragón, on line 5, is adjacent to the stadium. Line 5 will also bring you to the airport. Another option is taking metro line 3 to station Facultats, which is 5 minutes walk north of the stadium.

 

Address: Avenida Suecia s/n, 46010 Valencia

Eat, drink, and sleep near Mestalla

The Estadio de Mestalla is located in a densely urban neighbourhood close to Valencia's city centre. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in the area of the stadium, while more serious nightlife can be found a small walk away in the historic district. There is, for example, a pocket of nightlife around Plaza de Canovas at a distance of less than 10 minutes walking from the stadium, but there is much more further on in the historic center, while there is a club scene around the city's beaches.

There are many hotels in Valencia and some good options, such as Hospes Palau de la Mar, Hotel Husa Dimar, and SH Valencia Palace, that are close to Mestalla. Hotel Renasa, NH Villacarlos, and Hotel Kris Consul del Mar are also close but may be a little bit more expensive.

The many hotels near Estadio de Mestalla are available in the historic centre or closer to the beachfront.

Valencia Tickets

Tickets for Valencia games can be purchased online through the official website, Ticketmaster, or Entradas.com. Tickets can also be bought in person at the Mestalla ticket windows, at the Valencia megastore on the Avinguda del Marqués de Sotelo right off Plaça de l'Ajuntament square in the city centre, or at one of Fenamix sales points. Valencia's attendance rates are among the highest in the league, however they have a limited number of high-profile matches that always sell out. In these cases, you may have to settle for resellers such as viagogo and ticketbis. These websites may also be your only option if Ticketmaster and Entradas.com don't accept your foreign credit card.

Ticket prices vary depending on the opponent but can start at 10 euros for upper tiers and go up to 65 euros for the best seats at the main stand. Most tickets cost between 15 and 35 euros. The most expensive tickets for the Barcelona and Madrid matches will be significantly more expensive.

Mestalla stadium tours

Valencia offer guided stadium tours that include access to the dressing rooms, players' tunnel, and press room. The tours last about an hour. Tours run continuously on Mondays through Fridays between 10:30am and 2:30pm and 3:30pm and 5:30pm, and on Sundays between 10:30am and 1:30pm. On matchdays only, tours stop at 5 hours before kick-off, and do not include the dressing rooms.

The cost of the tour is €10.20. Bookings can be made online, by phone, or at the tour ticket window at Mestalla, but are not required.

Valencia Club de Fútbol is the official website of Valencia Football Club. Turismo Valencia is the official tourism website for Valencia. Metrovalencia.es provides travel information on the Valencia metro. What was surprising me was the fact that, after the half-time whistle, everyone got out sandwiches. It looked strange. Valencia is a very beautiful city and I would recommend a visit to everyone. It was a great day!

My friend got the tickets through ticket master and they cost thirty euros. The atmosphere alone was worth the entrance fee. He was sitting next to a few Athletico fans in a predominantly Valencia section but felt no bad vibes. Needless to say he was wearing an orange hoodie and blue trainers so he was covered.
