History and description

The first official game at the ground was between Atlético Madrid and Racing Santander on 14 September 1908. The first reference to Estadio El Molinón was made in May of this year, though it is likely that football had been played at the site before. The reference by newspaper El Comercio reported on a match played at the ground between La Bella Sportiva and El Balón. The first official game at the ground was between Atlético Madrid and Racing Santander on September 14th, 1908. Real Sporting Club moved into El Molinón in 1916 and a year later, the stadium received its first redevelopment when a new grandstand was built. In 1926, the stadium could hold about 6,000 spectators.

A fire broke out in 1931 that destroyed the grandstand. It led to serious financial troubles for the club, and it took until 1942 for the stand to be rebuilt.

In 1969, El Molinón became the first stadium in Spain to have full cover, and a year later a new main stand opened.

The stadium was also the site of a match between West Germany and Peru, which ended in a 1-1 draw. The stadium underwent a major redevelopment before the 1982 World Cup and it was expanded to 45,000 capacity. 16,600 seats were added which made it one of the largest stadiums in the world for soccer. It was also the site of three group matches during the World Cup - all involving West Germany. The final match of group play was between West Germany and Peru who finished with a 1-1 draw.

The stadium was converted into an all-seater in 1997, reducing its capacity to just under 26,000 seats.

Ten years later, El Molinón was again renovated, which involved the construction of a new north stand, the refurbishment of the other stands and the interior of the stadium, as well as a new exterior. It also slightly increased capacity.

How to get to El Molinon

The El Molinon stadium is located east of Gijón's historic city centre and about 3.5 kilometres from the city's main train station.

Sporting Gijon Tickets

Prices for tickets depend on the opponent. For a very low-profile match they can start as low as $15.00 for a seat behind the goal and range up to $40.00 for a seat at the main stand, but for most matches tickets will start at either $20.00 or $30.00.

The team is back in La Liga Primera, and usually it sells out. However, on match day there may be few seats left.

Prices for good seats appear to be at forty at this time and that can also be purchased online, but only up to two weeks in advance. This is really inconvenient and undermines the sales of these items.
