LLTO Know the Pitch: Reyno de Navarra

Estadio Reyno de Navarra was built in 1967 and is home to Osasuna.  Osasuna is enjoying their tenth straight year in the Primera Division and the club has proven time and time again that they are worthy of being a member of one of the toughest leagues in the world.  Osasuna has enjoyed playing in Estadio Reyno de Navarra for over forty straight years.

The stadium has undergone a few renovations during it’s fairly short existence.  The first renovation was when most La Liga stadiums had a renovation in 1989.  The second remodeling job came very recently, in fact it is considered one of the newer updates of any of the stadiums.  In 2003 the stadium underwent some interior improvements including adding seating to the venue.  Estadio Reyno de Navarra has plenty of years left before their are any future plans for a new stadium.

The stadium is located in the city of Navarre and the stadium’s name references the historical time known as the Kingdom of Navarre.  It is a multi-purpose stadium that has grass as the pitch’s surface.  Most critics believe that it suits modern football matches and doesn’t need many adjustments to the grounds.

It is a modest stadium in size around 19,5000 seats occupy the stands.  That makes it below the league average in stadium capacity and only about 3,000 seats from the league fewest (Getafe’s Alfonso Perez is the smallest).  Osasuna is a small market club though and the stadium suits their needs nicely.  Osasuna should continue to make Reyno de Navarra a significant place for many more years of top level football.
