The Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano is a multi-purpose stadium in Madrid, Spain. Named after former Real Madrid footballer Alfredo di Stéfano, the stadium is currently used for football matches, serving as the home of Real Madrid Castilla; the reserve team of Real Madrid; and, according to unconfirmed rumours by club members, will be used by the club's women's football section starting in 2020-21.

Overview[edit]

On Tuesday, 9 May 2006 the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium was inaugurated at the City of Madrid where Real Madrid usually trains. The inaugural match was between Real Madrid and Stade de Reims, a rematch of the European Cup final won by Real Madrid in 1956. Real Madrid won the inaugural match 6-1 with goals from Sergio Ramos, Antonio Cassano (2), Roberto Soldado (2), and José Manuel Jurado.[2]

The venue is part of the Ciudad Real Madrid, the club's new training facilities located outside Madrid in Valdebebas, near Madrid–Barajas Airport.

The capacity of the main stand at the west is 4,000 seats, with additional 2,000 seats at the eastern stand, giving the stadium a total capacity of 6,000 seats.
