Cornellà-El Prat (VIP 567)


Product Description


Barcelona, Spain

Estadi Cornellà-El Prat is an all-seater football stadium on the outskirts of Cornellà and El Prat de Llobregat, near Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain). It took 3 years to build and cost approximately 60 million euros. Completed in the summer of 2009, it is the new home of RCD Espanyol and was awarded as Venue of the Year getting the Stadium Business Awards on June 18, 2010 in Dublin. The stadium has a capacity of 40,500 and replaces their previous stadium, the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys. It is the eighth stadium in the club's history.

The stadium is currently known as the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat because it is located on the borders of the municipalities Cornellà and El Prat. The club hopes it will be able to find a buyer for the naming rights for the stadium. After the death of captain Daniel Jarque, many have proposed that the stadium should be renamed in his honour. However, the club has not taken a definite stance on the subject yet.

Espanyol defeated Liverpool F.C. 3–0 in the stadium's inaugural match on August 2, 2009.
