CF Extremadura’s first permanent ground was called Campo de Santa Aurora which was on Camino Alange. This was used from 1928 to 1935 when they moved the short distance to Campo Santa Elvira. In 1950, the idea of building a municipal stadium was formed. They played at a site adjacent to the proposed stadium called Los Cañizos for just over one season played. The inaugural match was on 12 October 1951; CF Extremadura played Sevilla FC Estadio Francisco de la Hera.
The stadium remained relatively unchanged until its demolition in 1996 to construct a new stadium. The 1996 Estadio Francisco de la Hera has a seating capacity of 11,580.
In July 2019, Extremadura UD and the city council of Almendralejo announced the rebranding of the stadium to Estadio Ciudad de Almendralejo. There were opinions against the change, the club held a referendum between its members.
