FacilitiesEdit

Situated in the eastern suburb of San Lázaro, the stadium is a multi-purpose arena, used primarily for the football matches. The stadium is oval in shape and has terracotta-coloured roof that rises on the west side to incorporate the directors seating and press facilities on a second tier. The pitch is surrounded by a 400 m athletics track, which is relatively uncommon in Spanish stadiums. The majority of the 14,000 seats are incorporated on a single, covered tier.

HistoryEdit

The inaugural match took place on 24 June 1993, when a four-way tournament was staged, featuring Deportivo de La Coruña, CD Tenerife, CA River Plate and São Paulo FC. Deportivo and River Plate played in the first match and Bebeto had the honour of scoring the first goal.

On 8 November 2018, the stadium was renamed for paying homage to Vero Boquete, Spanish footballer.[1]
