Home to Sevilla FC, the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán is named after the club’s former President who was the primary proponent in the building of the stadium but unfortunately never saw a game played there.
Designed by the same architect who built Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu and Valencia’s Mestalla, the stadium opened in 1958 with a capacity of over 70,000 and reached 77,000 in 1974.
The capacity was reduced to 66,000 as the stadium hosted one group match and a semi-final at the 1982 FIFA World Cup – a 3-3 draw between West Germany and France with the Germans winning on penalties.
The 1986 European Cup final was played at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, with Steaua Bucharest defeating Barcelona 2-0 penalties after playing out a 0-0 draw.
A series of developments and the introduction of seating saw La Bombonera reach its current capacity of just over 42,000. A number of Spanish international matches have played there and as of 2019, the team has never been defeated at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
The 2022 UEFA Europa League Final will be played at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
