History and description

Reale Arena, better known as Estadio Anoeta, replaced Reale Sociedad's old Estadio de Atotxa, which had become too small and lacked the possibilities for expansion. In sharp contrast with their cosy old ground, the new stadium was bowl-shaped, spacious, and had an athletics track circling the pitch. The Estadio Anoeta opened on July 29, 1993 with the European Youth Athletics Championships. The first match at the stadium was played a few weeks later when Sociedad received Real Madrid for a friendly. The stadium could hold up to 32,000 spectators.

Despite being unhappy with the facility, Real Sociedad actually proposed redeveloping the stadium back in the early 2000s. However, this never came to fruition.

In early 2014, Real Sociedad plans for a redevelopment of Anoeta included the removal of the athletics tracks, the extension of the lower tier closer to the pitch, a north and south stands, increased hospitality areas, and an enlarged roof, resulting in an increased capacity of 40,000 seats.

The plans to build a new stadium were confirmed in 2016 and work started in March of that year. The project took close to two and a half years to complete and the stadium reopened in September 2019.

Earlier this year, the stadium had been renamed Reale Arena after a naming rights deal with Reale Seguros.

How to get to the Reale Arena

The Reale Arena is located in the south of the city of San Sebastián and it is about 2 kilometers from La Concha beach and the old town. The railway station is about the same distance from the arena. From all of these places, the walk to the stadium can be made in about half an hour. The walk from the train station where most local trains arrive (Euskotren) will be even shorter.

Alternatively, you can take bus 174 from the city center stop Zaragoza and get off at Anoeta-Basilea. From there, take a bus to the stadium.

Bus 26 (to Martutene) and 28 (to Miramón) both follow a similar route. Get off at stop Anoeta. Bus 31 also connects the stadium with the city center as well as other places in the east and west of the city.

Address: Anoeta Pasealekua 1, 20014 San Sebastián (Donostia)

Eat, drink, and sleep near Reale Arena

The Real Arena is located in a not particularly interesting residential neighbourhood composed of large apartment blocks. It is Spain, so there are always a few local bars and restaurants if you need something to eat, but San Sebastián is one of Spain's most pleasant cities so the best option is to spend as much time as possible in the old town and along La Concha beach. If you want to stay close to Estadio Anoeta, the best option is Hotel Anoeta. It is located right next to the stadium, and has good reviews.

Alternatively, there are a few hotels north of the centre which include Hotel Silken Armara Plaza and Hotel Astoria 7. Both hotels are more expensive, but they are only a 10-minute walk from the stadium.

You can find a range of different hotels in the vicinity of the Reale Arena. Of course, there are many more and also cheaper options in the city center of San Sebastian?.

The atmosphere is great. You should visit the old town after the match. The Basques are so hospitable. My favorite pension is La Koxka Calle 31 Augusto.

From France, come find the EuskoTren at the station just outside Hendaye train station. Ensure you're getting a San Sebastian train and get off at Anoeta.
