Ejea de los Caballeros – Nuevo Estadio Municipal

Following hot on the heals of the new stadium in Binéfar and Andorra CF’s complete revamp of their Estadio Juan Antonio Endeiza came this offering in Ejea. This bright new stadium replaced the old Campo de Luchan that stood in the shadow of the town’s bullring.

The old Campo de Luchan

The new stadium was built to the east of the town at a cost of € 3.157.902 and was completed in 8 months. It’s a simple but effective design, offering better views and more cover than Luchan ever did. The main grandstand houses 1315 seats and a further 1000 seats are contained on three narrow banks that surround the other sides of the synthetic pitch, which saw its first match on 8 August 2010 when Andorra CF were the opponents.

Clean, lean and unimaginatively named

As for the resident club, Sociedad Deportiva Ejea was founded in 1941 and has clocked-up 43 seasons in the Tercera since first appearing back in 1956-57. They have won the league title on three occasions, the last as recently as 2011-12. Since that last league title, SD Ejea’s form has tailed-off somewhat, with just one play-off appearance.
