“Part of a very good day out”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

As a football fan, I took the opportunity to watch CD Tenerife at the end of my holiday. The game started at 7pm, so I planned a full day in Santa Cruz. It's easy to get to by bus and with a Bono card, very reasonable. To get my bearings, I walked to the stadium from the bus station, around ten minutes. With no cash turnstiles, I bought a ticket from the ticket window, 20 euros for upper tier. The lower tier I believe was 15 euros. For the next few hours I wandered round the beautiful city of Santa Cruz. A far cry from the tourist resorts and plenty to do, including taking a tram up the hills. After a meal, I went to the ground an hour before kick off and you need to head to the far end of the stadium where there are many bars. They are busy but the atmosphere around them is great. There are also a few stalls selling hats, scarves, badges, shirts etc. There is little point going in to the ground too early as unlike English grounds, there is little in the concourses. The ground itself is excellent with a good view from every seat. Tenerife lost 4-0, but the 'ultras' continued to sing throughout giving a good atmosphere, despite the stadium only being a quarter full. It was easy to get back to the resort afterwards from the bus station and for football supporters who like to visit different grounds, then work this one in with a day in Santa Cruz and you won't be disappointed.

“Nice stadium, great match day vibe”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Visited the stadium for a match against Mallorca. The stadium is a nice size for a smaller team, great atmosphere for match days, although I may of been lucky as I was watching a well known team come into town.

Prices were reasonable, parking was fairly easy.... all in all, if your a soccer fan then go check out a home match and enjoy a few hours of footy. Also, as many stay in the south isle, the team has a club store in the south, Lagos de Fenebe, you can get pick up club merchandise at the store or make arrangements to go up north for a match.

“For soccer fans”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Home of Clud Deportivo Tenerife, it is a quite big stadium. Great teams (Barcelona, Real Madrid, etc) came to play when Tenerife CD was in first division. Now the team is in second B, but it is goin up soon again. Excellent stadium.
