The Estadio Nueva Condomina, currently known as the Estadio Enrique Roca de Murcia for advertising purposes, is the football stadium in which the Real Murcia C.F. team plays their matches. Located in the city of Murcia, the stadium has a capacity of 31,175 spectators and was inaugurated on October 11, 2006 with a friendly match between Spain and Argentina.
The Real Murcia team played their first match on November 26 in a league game against Real Valladolid, corresponding to matchday 14 of the Second Division. The Valladolid team, which would become champion that season, won by a decisive 1-4 score.
The Nueva Condomina Shopping Center is located next to the stadium.
Although the private promoter of the stadium claimed during the entire project that it would be classified as a five-star stadium by UEFA, thus being able to host Champions League finals, this was ultimately revealed to be impossible as a minimum capacity of 50,000 spectators is required to obtain this rating.
With the inclusion of the city of Murcia and the Estadio Nueva Condomina in the Iberian Bid to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup, an expansion of the stadium was planned, which would then have more than 43,000 seats, and the number of private boxes and press area would be multiplied. Finally, the chosen bids were Russia (2018) and Qatar (2022) and the project was postponed for the future.
The Spanish national team has played four matches at this stadium against Argentina (2006), Bosnia and Herzegovina (2008), Poland (2010) and Colombia (2017).
The home of Real Murcia has a capacity of 31,179 spectators, all with their corresponding seats. In these extraordinary facilities, we have 163 seats in the main box, 364 VIP seats, 32 private boxes (with a capacity of 13 or 17 people), an area for the disabled that can accommodate 160 people and another for the press in which 128 professionals can be present.
In addition, there are 572 indoor parking spaces, 11 rest areas – bars, 2 video scoreboards, 38 vomitoria, 20 access points and 78 exit doors. The dimensions of the field are 102×70.
