Mestalla Stadium is a football stadium in Valencia, Spain. The stadium is the home ground of Valencia Club de Fútbol and has a capacity of 55,500 seats.
The Estadio Mestalla was inaugurated with a friendly match on 20 May 1923 between Valencia CF and Levante UD. The new stadium had a capacity of 17,000 spectators, which was increased to 25,000 four years later. During the Civil War, the Mestalla was used as a concentration camp and storage warehouse. It would only keep its structure, since the rest was an empty plot of land with no terraces and a grandstand damaged during the war.
