Real Betis Release New Benito Villamarin Stadium Project Details

The new home for Real Betis fans will, among many other features, improve accessibility and comfort for fans, include three large dining areas, and triple the number of VIP seats to increase the club’s revenue.



Real Betis has received the preliminary project for the new Benito Villamarín Stadium, with detailed designs, which will enhance fan comfort and significantly increase the club’s revenue generation potential.



The project, presented by Rafael de La-Hoz Architecture Studio, will feature a new exterior, a facade representing the Thirteen Bars of the club’s crest, with light, translucent tones, offering the possibility to project colours and images.


The basic project also includes the installation of a roof, which will house two new video scoreboards, larger than the current ones located in Gol Norte and Gol Sur, equipped with the latest technology.


The roof will also integrate sound and lighting systems to enhance the matchday spectacle and fan experience. Additionally, it will collect rainwater for irrigation, aligning with the club’s sustainability policy.


The design includes an adjacent building to the Preferencia stand, providing various services, and a large plaza five meters above street level. Under these spaces, two levels of underground parking will be constructed.



The basic project also addresses the club’s requests by defining three large dining areas, offering fans quality spaces with a wide gastronomic selection on matchdays and throughout the week.


The main area, covering 1,000 square meters, will be located in the new Preferencia stand; another between Gol Norte and Fondo; and a third between Gol Sur and Fondo. These areas will be accessible to all fans and will be located before the turnstiles. The design also triples the number of VIP seats from the current 1,200 to 3,700 to increase revenue.


The new official store will remain in its current location, between Gol Norte and Preferencia, but will be improved with a 1,000 square meter space spread over two floors.


The club museum will also undergo significant improvements, in another space of 1,000 square metres. It will welcome visitors to the Real Betis Tour, showing the new Betis temple, including the dressing rooms, rooftop views of the Heliópolis neighborhood and the V Centenario Bridge, and the new official store.

The new official store will also experience significant improvements, in another space of 1,000 square metres.


Improving accessibility is another key aspect of this preliminary project, with four escalators to access the Gol Sur, Gol Norte, Fondo, and Preferencia areas, reaching the terrace of the first tier.


This preliminary project will continue in the coming months with the execution project and the tendering process for the construction works which are expected to start next summer, once the season 2024/25 is over.

From that moment, the team will play their home games at La Cartuja stadium for two seasons (2025/26 and 2026/27) with a return to the new Benito Villamarin Stadium at the beginning of the 2027/28.
