02.11.2016: In 2015 the Sevilla FC stadium - Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán - underwent major modernization. Even though the stadium does not resemble modern arenas, which are being built nowadays, the renovation did improve the stadium facilities.

It was only the main stand that was covered by roof prior the modernization and this has not changed after it.

Bilbao - San Mamés BarriaBilbao - San Mamés Barria29.03.2016: REMINDER | Estadio San Mamés, the home ground of the Spanish club Athletic Bilbao, can be seen in all its splendour from September 2014.

Unfortunately, the old stadium could not offer such comfort as modern stadiums can. The new San Mamés is a truly worthy successor to the old one. The project to build a new stadium for one of the most successful clubs in the history of Spanish league was approved in March 2006.
