History and description

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

The south stand, the only remaining old stand from the 1982 World Cup, was rebuilt for the tournament. The new two-tiered stand was significantly larger than the previous stand, but because seats were installed in most parts of the stadium capacity dropped to 33,000.

During the 1982 World Cup, the Estadio de Balaídos hosted three group matches of eventual winner Italy.

The stadium as it stands now, with only a handful of seats left, is a disgrace to the country's footballing heritage. The Estadio de Balaidos hardly changed over the following decades and it has now severely aged. Plans were proposed for the complete rebuilding of the stadium into a modern 42,000-seater, however these got eventually shelved due to the Spanish 2018 World Cup bid failure. The stadium as it stands now is a disgrace to the country's footballing heritage and few seats remain.

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

The renovation is estimated to cost around 2 million euros. Work on renovating the Tribuna stand on one side of the stadium started in the summer of 2015 and was completed in early 2017. The next phase will be revamping the Rio stand on the other side, which is estimated to cost around 2 million euros.

How to get to Balaidos

The Estadio de Balaídos is located in the south-west of the city of Vigo, approximately 3 kilometers from its historic city centre and a little more from the train station. The stadium lacks an easy transport connection, but it's 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 are available at the airport. There is an alternative to catching 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 are available at the airport.

Bus 5a, 7, 8, 11, 12b and 17 all lead you to the stadium from the historic center. You can catch them on Rua Policarpo Sanz.

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

Eat, drink, and sleep near Balaidos

The Estadio de Balaidos is located in a residential neighborhood by a lot of bars and restaurants. Directly across from the stadium, or along the Avenida do Fragoso or Avenida da Florida, it is a pleasant area to spend some time before the match. However, be aware that as often in Spain, once inside the stadium there are few food options. There are few hotels in the area around Balaidos, but with Hesperia Vigo, Hotel Coia de Vigo, and Hostal Geneve there are a few options available at walking distance. Otherwise, there is good selection of hotels in Vigo's historic centre and around Urzaiz train station in the modern centre.

Looking for hotels near Estadio de Balaidos? This page provides an overview of hotels in the vicinity, as well as other accommodations options in Vigo. For more specific information on hotel locations and rates, please visit the respective pages.

Celta Tickets

Tickets for Celta de Vigo games can be bought online or at the stadium ticket windows from a week before the match. The club may restrict online sales to Spanish citizens (requiring a DNI number) and in those cases, the club can be contacted to arrange a ticket in advance. Tickets can also be bought on the day at the stadium. Only a few matches sell out, so it's worth buying tickets early.

Price ranges for tickets depend on the opponent, but typically fall in the range of ?20.00 for a seat behind the goal to ?50.00 for an upper-tier seat at the main stand. For derbies against Deportivo and the Barcelona and Madrid games, expect to pay significantly more.
