History and description

The stadium had a capacity for 15,000 people and was the home of the club's first team. Estadio Municipal de Balaídos (Municipal Stadium of Balaídos) opened in 1928 after a three-year construction period. The first match was played on the 30th of December between Celta and Real Union (7-0). The stadium had a capacity for 15,000 people and was the home of the club's first team. The stadium gradually improved over the next decades, but it 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 was specifically built to host World Cup matches and was not used for other events. The south stand (the only remaining old stand) was rebuilt for the 1982 World Cup, and because seats were installed in most parts of the stadium, its capacity decreased to 33,000. The south stand was specifically built to host World Cup matches and was not used for other events.

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

The Estadio de Balaidos hardly changed in the following decades and over the years it severely aged. In 2010, plans were presented for the complete rebuilding of the stadium into a modern 42,000-seater, however as these were part of the failed Spanish 2018 World Cup bid, these got eventually shelved.

After a few years, 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.

How to get to Balaidos

The Estadio de Balaídos is located in the south-west of the city of Vigo, about 3 kilometers from its historic city centre and a little more from the train station. The stadium lacks an easy transport connection, but it can be 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 cost around €5 from the central railway station or plazas.

There are several buses that will get you to the stadium from the historic centre. Bus 5A, 7, 8, 11, 12B and 17 all service this area.

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

Eat, drink, and sleep near Balaidos

The Estadio de Balaidos is located in a lively residential area and has loads of bars and restaurants around. It?s a pleasant area to spend some time before the match, but bear in mind that once inside the stadium there are few options to eat. There are not many hotels located close to Balaidos, but there are three options nearby: Hesperia Vigo, Hotel Coia de Vigo, and Hostal Geneve. Otherwise, there are a few good hotels located in the historic center and around Urzaiz train station in the modern center.

Celta Tickets

Tickets for Celta de Vigo games can be bought online, or at the ticket windows at the stadium 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 be bought on the day at the stadium. Celta only sells out the odd high-profile match.

Tickets prices vary depending on the opponent, but typically range from $20 for a seat behind the goal to $50 for an upper-tier seat at the main stand. Expect to pay significantly more for games against Deportivo and Barcelona and Madrid.
