Today's Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium Talking Points
The Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium (Spanish: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán; [esˈtaðjo raˈmon ˈsantʃeθ piθˈxwan]) is a football stadium in Seville, Spain. It is the home stadium of Sevilla Fútbol Club. It was the venue for the 1986 European Cup Final between Steaua București and Barcelona and the 1982 World Cup semi-final game between Germany and France.
This stadium contains a singular legend: the Spanish national team has never lost a game against an international team in this stadium. In European competition, Sevilla has lost only three times at home; to AZ in the 2006–07 UEFA Cup group stage, to CSKA Moskva in the 2009–10 UEFA Champions League and to Real Betis in the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League.
The stadium holds 42,500 and was built in 1957. It replaced the Estadio de Nervión.
The stadium is nicknamed "La Bombonera" (pronounced: [la βomboˈneɾa]; more commonly used to refer to Estadio Alberto J. Armando, the home stadium of Boca Juniors) or "La Bombonera de Nervión" [la βomboˈneɾa ðe nerˈβjon] due to the Nervión neighbourhood where the stadium is situated.Close
