Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium profile
Named in honour of former Sevilla club president Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, the stadium has been in continuous use since 1958, when it replaced the Estadio de Nervión as Sevilla's home. It had a standing capacity of over 70,000 when it opened, and could hold 77,000 by the mid-1970s before improvement work and an increased focus on seating brought capacity down to over 40,000.
With its famously lively atmosphere, the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán has been nicknamed 'La Bombonera de Nervión' in honour of the similarly excitable home of Argentinian side Boca Juniors, and it has staged plenty of drama while hosting neutral games. West Germany beat France on penalties in the 1982 FIFA World Cup semi-finals here, while Steaua Bucureşti's 1986 European Cup final success against Barcelona also came following a shoot-out.
