Real Sociedad transform stadium

Sunday 15th September 2019

Spanish side Real Sociedad have officially opened the renovated Anoeta Stadium.

The La Liga side won 3-2 against Atletico Madrid in front of 34,719.

Originally opened in 1993, the Anoeta has been undergoing renovations for the past 2 years with the club removing the running track and adding over 10,000 seats in its place at a cost of around €47m. The total capacity now stands at 42,300 making it the 8th largest stadium in Spain (currently in use).

Sociedad have sold an impressive 32,000 season tickets and started the current season with 3 consecutive away games to allow work on the stadium to be completed.

The YouTube video below shows the work done on the stadium:
