History and description

The stadium was built in 1929 for the Ibero-American Exposition, which was held in Seville that year. The first football game at the stadium was an international between Spain and Portugal on March 17th, 1929. Shortly after, Betis started playing occasional home matches at the stadium, though Campo del Patronato remained their regular home until 1936.

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

The stadium got heavily damaged due to the flood in 1948.

The stadium underwent a second redevelopment in the early 1990s. The first redevelopment of Estadio de Heliópolis took place in 1958 and it was bought by the club in 1961. The stadium remained rather modest though, and few changes were made until the 1970s. The stadium underwent a second redevelopment in the early 1990s.

The stadium formerly known as Estadio Benito Villamarin underwent several small redevelopments in the 1970s, but only received proper development following its designation as a World Cup host stadium in 1982. At the time it could only hold about 47,500 spectators.

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

The stadium remained relatively unchanged until Betis decided to rebuild it in 1998. New three-tier stands were built on the north and eastern sides of the stadium, which complemented the already existing three-tiered West Stand.

At the same time, the stadium was renamed Estadio Manuel Ruiz de Lopera after the then-owner of the club. However, work stalled after that and 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, Estadio Benito Villamarin was reinstalled as the official name of the club.

In 2015, plans were made to demolish the single-tiered South Stand and replace it with a new three-tiered stand in line with the rest of the stadium. Work began in the summer of 2016 and was completed in the summer of 2017, increasing capacity to just over 60,000 seats.
