Estadio Gran Canaria is a football stadium in Las Palmas, Spain. It is currently used for football matches and is home to UD Las Palmas. It was opened in 2003 as a multi-purpose stadium to become the successor of the old Estadio Insular.
The stadium was inaugurated on 8 May 2003 with a friendly between UD Las Palmas and RSC Anderlecht which was played in front of a full-capacity seats. The mach ended in favour of the hosts with a score of 2-1. The first scorer in the stadium was Rubén Castro.
Starting from 11 November 2014, the stadium went under restructuring works which will last for about 16 months. After the remodelization, the running track was removed to turn the venue into a football-specific stadium, with the seats closer to the playing ground.
