Ramon Sanchez Football Stadium, full name Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, is a sports center and football stadium owned by Sevilla FC. The official opening of this stadium was on September 7, 1958. Ramon Sánchez used to be the president of the Sevilla football club, so the stadium is named in his honor. The stadium accommodates almost 40,000 spectators. In 1982, during the world football championship, this stadium was the host for some of the matches, namely the semi-final matches. The architect of the stadium is Manuel Munoz Monasterio.
This stadium hosted 25 matches of the Spanish national team and it is interesting that Spain did not lose a single match. In 1986, the European Cup final was played at this stadium. The then president of Seville provided his city with the land on which the stadium was built for the needs of the stadium. He even used his personal money to build the stadium, which the club later reimbursed him. Sevilla FC is a professional football club that plays in the First Division of Spain. Sevilla Football Club was founded on October 14, 1905.
The visiting fans at the stadium sit in the very corner, between the south and east stands, that is gate number 11 in the stadium. And the most ardent Sevilla fans stand behind the goal on the north side.
The stadium can be visited outside of matches, and in the souvenir shops at the stadium itself, it is possible to buy souvenirs of the Sevilla Football Club, original jerseys and flags of the recognizable red color.
