History and description

On 20 October 1940, La Rosaleda was finally inaugurated with a match between Real Madrid and Valencia. The first stone of Estadio La Rosaleda was laid on 21 June 1936, but due to the Spanish Civil War it took four years for building works to actually start. On 20 October 1940, La Rosaleda was finally inaugurated with a match between Real Madrid and Valencia. On the 13th of April in 1941, La Rosaleda played its first match. Málaga, then known as Malacitano, easily defeated their visiting Ferroviaria opponents by 6 goals. The match was originally scheduled due to the destruction of Malacitano's old pitch by a thunderstorm.

The Estadio La Rosaleda opened on September 14, 2018 with a match between Málaga and Sevilla. At the time, the stadium had a capacity of about 8,000.

Since 1965, La Rosaleda stadium has been gradually expanding, and in the last few years, a new east stand was built that increased the stadium's capacity to about 22,000 people.

The Estadio La Rosaleda was chosen as one of the playing venues for the 1982 World Cup, and so it needed to be expanded. Second tiers were erected on the remaining single-tiered stands, the pitch was lowered to create extra rows of seating, and the rest of the stadium was extensively refurbished.

At the World Cup, La Rosaleda hosted three first round group matches. The capacity at that time was about 37,000.

The stadium remained virtually unchanged for the next 20 years, until in 2000 a major redevelopment program was started. Over a period of six years, La Rosaleda got gradually rebuilt and renovated, resulting in more cover, increased hospitality facilities, and better comfort; however, it also had a reduction in capacity to under 30,000.
