Estadio Ebal Rodriguez is a multi-use stadium in Guápiles, Costa Rica. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Santos de Guápiles. The stadium holds 3,000 people.

History[edit]

Alajuelense's Wilson Muñoz scored the first Primera División goal scored in the stadium in a 1999 4-0 league win over the hosts.[4]

The stadium is currently undergoing a number of renovations. An artificial pitch has been installed, the building was newly painted, the transmission cabins were improved and a roof for the main stand will follow up. The offices will also be remodeled and 50 new stands will be added. US$20,000 will also be invested in seeking the inspection and approval of the stadium by FIFA for international games.[5]
