Newly opened in 2013, it replaced the old San Mamés stadium built around 1913. The stadium's construction has had several investors and costs around 173 million euros. The stadium is not only home to the Athletic Bilbao football club, but it also serves as a sports and innovation centre, medical research centre and event venue for concerts. When visiting the stadium, booking a parking space through Parkimeter in advance is advisable as it can get hectic during (sports) events.
Athletic Bilbao was founded in 1898 and has never been relegated since the start of the Primera Divisón (1924) along with Fc Barcelona and Real Madrid. This is an achievement in itself, but Athletic Bilbao only plays with players born in the Basque Country and, unlike FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, has never bought players from outside.
The club's popularity results in crowds around matches; therefore, reserve a parking space in advance through Parkimeter. We recommend one of the following parking spaces: Palacio Euskalduna https://parkimeter.com/es/parking-bilbao-bilbo/parking-palacio-euskalduna, Deusto-San Mamés - Clínica https://parkimeter.com/es/parking-bilbao-bilbo/parking-clinica-imq or Madariaga - Deusto https://parkimeter.com/es/parking-bilbao-bilbo/parking-parking-madariaga.
