San Mamés Stadium is a football stadium in Bilbao with a capacity of 53,332 spectators. San Mamés Stadium is the home ground of the Athletic de Bilbao football club. Newly inaugurated in 2013, it replaced the old San Mamés stadium, built around 1913. The construction of the stadium has involved several investors and cost about 173 million euros. The stadium is not only the home of the Athletic de Bilbao football club, but also serves as a sports and innovation center, medical research center and concert event venue. To visit the stadium, it is advisable to book a parking space through Parkimeter in advance, as it can get hectic during (sporting) events.
Athletic Bilbao was founded in 1898 and has never been relegated since the beginning of the First Division (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, we recommend one of the following parking spaces: Palacio Euskalduna, Deusto-San Mamés - Clínica or Madariaga - Deusto.
