Mestalla Football Stadium Valencia

Valencia FC is the third top Spanish football team behind Real Madrid and FC Barcelona who are top of the league.

History of Valencia FC

Valencia FCMestalla stadium opened on 20 May 1923 and is still home to Valencia Football Club.

The stadium is located at the end of Calle Micer Masco (Carrer Misser Masco),  and  easy to reach from the Calatrava/Exposicion bridge which crosses the Turia Gardens from the old town.

On 17 February 1929, Valencia Club de Fútbol (known as los Che) played in the Spanish Football league at Mestalla stadium in the center of Valencia.

David Villa Sánchez (nicknamed El Guaje) joined los Che (nickname of the team) in June 2005 for a transfer fee of €12 million.  From 2005-2006 , David Villa was the second top scorer in La Liga with 25 goals. He is also third top scorer of all time in Spanish Football.  In May 2010, David Villa transferred to Barcelona FC for a four-year deal for a fee of €40 million (£34.2 million).

Nou Mestalla stadium

Today everyone is hoping the move to the new 75,000-seater Nou Mestalla stadium will be soon.  The new stadium is located in the barrio of Benicalap (approximately three miles west of the center of Valencia). The move was predicted to be in May 2009 but this didn’t happen and then it was predicted for the new season 2010/2011. Work was said to resume in 2012 but with the present economic climate it’s difficult to say when it will be ready.

Unfortunately, Valencia FC appears to be in financial crisis and work on the new stadium has stopped. Nobody seems to know when the stadium will be finished. The exterior of the stadium consists of 22,500 overlapping aluminium elements which represent Valencia’s districts and the river Turia.
