Construction on Valencia's Neuvo Mestalla to start again

Valencia's new stadium reignited

Tuesday 30th April 2019

Valencia's new Neuvo Mestalla looks like it might finally get completed - more than 9 years after build work stopped.

Construction of the new 61,000-seater stadium was halted in February 2009 after the club's funding fell though.

However, the project now looks to be back on with the La Liga side finding a buyer for the site of their existing stadium - with the reported €100m fee being just enough to cover the cost of the new stadium.

It is hoped that Valencia will be able to begin the 2022/2023 season at their new ground. The current Mestalla will then be demolished in 2023.
