Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes esˈtaðjo ˈnweβo los ˈkarmenes is a multi-use stadium in Granada, Spain. Currently, it is used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 23,156 people, and was built in 1995 to be the home ground of Granada CF, the main football club of the city.


The stadium opened on 16 May 1995. On 6 June 1995, Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen contested the first match at the new stadium. Real Madrid won the match with a final score of 1:0. Peter Dubovský scored the goal.

The first official match was an under-21 contest between Spain and Armenia. The final result was 4:0, with the goals scored by Óscar, Roberto, Morales and Raúl.

Granada CF played the first match on 22 August during the celebration of the XXIII Granada Trophy when they beat Real Betis by a score of 4–1.


This stadium is located in Zaidín, a suburb south of the city of Granada. It is very well-connected with the Circunvalación highway and with Camino de Ronda, one of the more important streets of the city. It was constructed by the side of Palacio Municipal de Deportes de Granada.


The Spanish national team has played eight times in Granada (in both stadiums, Los Cármenes and Nuevo Los Cármenes), three of them were official. They are still undefeated in the city, with seven victories, the last against Czech Republic winning 2–1 with two Villa goals in a qualifying match for UEFA Euro 2012. Villa thus became the top scorer in the history of Spain.
