CD Atlético Baleares (1960–2013, 2019-present)

The Estadio Balear is a football stadium located in Palma, Balearic Islands, Spain. Closed between 2013 and 2019 on safety grounds, it is the home stadium of the CD Atlético Baleares football team. There is a covered stand with 6,000 seats,[1] and the pitch's dimensions are 102×67 metres.

History[edit]

Estadio Balear opened on 8 May 1960, with a 2–0 friendly win against Birmingham City.

On 14 June 2013, the stadium was closed by Palma city council due to a risk of collapse.[2] Four years and a half later, on 14 December 2017, the renovation works started and the capacity of the stadium would be reduced to about 6,000.[1]

During the stadium's closure, CD Atlético Baleares have played home games at the Camp de Son Malferit [ca; es] nearby.

The renovation of the stadium was scheduled to finish in August 2019.
