Getafe stadium: Facts about the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez

Getafe are currently playing home games in the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez. With a much larger capacity compared to their old stadium, the club’s president Angel Torres still wanted to give it an extension to 20,000 capacity but failed due to a poor budget.

What is the current home ground of Getafe?

History

The Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez is a football stadium located in Getafe, on the outskirts of Madrid, Spain. It was built in 1998 and Getafe played at this stadium as their home ground in late August that year. 

Getafe stadium

There was no reason that explained why it was named after Alfonso Perez, a former footballer born and raised in Getafe. However, he has never played in Getafe as well as on the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez, but in other La Liga top-flight clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona

Probably, Alfonso Perez is one of the Getafe-born football players who have been quite successful and come out of the small town to play in top-notch clubs during the mid-1990s.

Renovations

The home venue of Getafe has witnessed several extensions since the completion of the stadium in 1998. Although there were no exact records on the renovations of the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez, it seemed that the capacity was extended as the average attendance on the stadium in the 2009-10 season was 10,579 and 9,072 in the 2010-11 season, while it can hold more than 17,000 spectators currently. In the west stand, the roof was installed to cover all the seats in this stand. 

Current specifications

  • Capacity: 17,393 (14,400 seats)
  • Pitch size: 107 m x 71 m
  • Surface: Grass

How to get there?

1. Car

The Estadi Alfonso Pérez is conveniently located between the avenue Teresa de Calcutta and the M-45 motorway, making it a quick journey from Madrid or farther afield. Follow the exit signs for Getafe, which are visible from the highway, and your satnav will take care of the rest.

Address: 28903 Getafe, Avenida Teresa de Calcuta S/N

On matchdays, a medium-sized parking park located west of the pitch is open for the general public to use for a fee of a few euros. At first sight, I'd estimate there are roughly 500 parking places, but no official count has been given, and it's still a good idea to arrive early.

You may also park at the Centro Comercial Bulevar Getafe, which is two minutes down the road, as a backup.

2. Public transport

  • Train

You may take a 20-minute commuter train south from Atocha Cercana station to Parla/Sol, which is about an 18-minute walk from the stadium. Trains depart every 15-25 minutes, depending on the day, from Las Margaritas Universidad, the station you'll want to get off at. C-4 is the name of this line.

  • Metro

Depending on your starting location, the metro is also an option, with Los Espartales being an incredible 5-minute walk from the stadium. To get off here, use the circular line 12 (Metrosur), but first, make your way to Puerta Del Sur station on Line 10 to transfer. The metro will most likely take less than an hour and have many more stops than a straight commuter train, but it will get you closer to the stadium.

  • Airport

Getafe does have an airport, however, it is solely for military use. The Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport is the closest commercial airport, and it is Europe's sixth busiest. The airport is around 25 kilometers from the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez and may be reached by the M-45/40 highway or the Madrid metro line to Nuevos Ministerios station.
