History and description

The stadium has a seating capacity of 54,000. The Estadio Benito Villamarín was built in 1929 for the Ibero-American Exposition that was held in Seville that year. The first football played at the stadium was an international between Spain and Portugal on March 17, 1929. The stadium has a seating capacity of 54,000 people. In the soon after, Betis started playing occasional home matches at the stadium though Campo del Patronato remained their regular home until 1936.

The stadium originally went by the name of Heliópolis Stadium, was rectangular in shape, and could hold about 18,000 spectators.

The stadium was heavily damaged due to a flood in 1948.

The stadium of Heliópolis underwent its first redevelopment in 1958. The club subsequently acquired the stadium in 1961, and made only modest changes until the 1970s.

In the 1970s, the then-renamed Estadio Benito Villamarin underwent a few small redevelopments. However, it only received proper development with the perspective of the 1982 World Cup. At this time, it could hold about 47,500 spectators.

During the World Cup, the stadium hosted two first round group matches.

The Estadio Benito Villamarin remained essentially unchanged until Betis in 1998 decided to almost completely rebuild the stadium. New three-tiered stands were built on the north and eastern sides of the stadium, which complemented the already existing three-tiered West Stand.

The stadium was renamed Estadio Manuel Ruiz de Lopera after the then-owner of the club, but work on the project stalled after that. The remaining single-tiered South Stand was left single-tiered, and no roofs were installed.

After Ruiz de Lopera had left the club in 2010, fans voted to reinstall the old name Estadio Benito Villamarin. This vote was in response to the fact that the new name, La Liga, did not properly represent the club's history.

In 2015, it was decided to tear down the single-tiered stand at the South end of the stadium and replace it with a new three-tiered stand in line with the rest of the stadium. Works started in the summer of 2016 and were completed in the summer of 2017, increasing capacity to just over 60,000 seats.

The stadium is situated on the Avenida la Palmera, a large thoroughfare which connects the stadium in one straight line with the centre of the city. Around the city centre, the avenue - though with a different name - runs along the bank of the river Guadalquivir.

From the northern edge of the center and eastern parts of Cairo, you can catch bus 2 to Glorieta Heliopolis.

There is no direct bus connection from Seville's central train station to the stadium, but buses 1 and 2 pass about 500 metres west and 1 kilometre north-east of the station, respectively.

Bus 3 has its last stop at the edge of town. All buses have frequent service. Bus 1, 2, and 6 have their last stop near the stadium. Bus 3 has its last stop at the edge of town.

Eat, drink, and sleep near Estadio Benito Villamarin

However, it is better to eat and drink in Seville's historic centre. There are several hotels around Estadio Benito Villamarin. Hotel Silken Al-Andalus Palace is located 200 metres from the stadium, and has good reviews. Boutique Hotel Holos is more expensive, while Hotel Sevilla Palmero is farther away, but still easily walkable.

Real Betis Tickets

Tickets for Real Betis games can be bought at the ticket windows (taquillas) of the stadium in the week before the match (closed between 2:00pm and 5:00pm). Tickets are available on the day of the match before kickoff. The Real Betis soccer club has had high attendances in La Liga, but they have sold out few games. However, demand has increased following the construction of a new stadium in 2017, and buying tickets in advance is recommended.

Tickets generally cost ?30.00 for an upper-tier seat behind the goal and go up to ?60.00 for a central seat at the main stand, though prices can be increased for high-profile fixtures.

Relevant Internet links

The website of Real Betis Balompié and the Seville tourist information website both provide information about the city. The public transport provider, Tussam, has a website where passengers can find information about schedules, fares, and routes. Don't make the same mistake as me - there is no alcohol served inside the stadium, so enjoy the convenience of a small beer shack selling cans of beer for 2 euros right in front of the stadium. The atmosphere at this spot is amazing, and it's definitely worth checking out!
